FO: Crazy Socks!

I think it's appropriate that the first FO of summer (what feels like summer, anyway) is this pair of crazy, bright socks.

Yarn: OnLine Supersocke 6-ply Comic-Color, purchased from the sale room at Loopy Yarns, Chicago
Needles: US1 dpns

Pattern: Nancy Bush's Gentleman's Fancy Socks
Verdict: As usual, this straightforward pattern does a wonderful job of handling stripes and quick color changes.

The yarn for this pair is super-thick and woolly, which means they won't go into regular circulation until next fall, but they sure are fun to look at!

If you, like me, can't get enough of the yarny goodness, you can see a few more photos on my Ravelry project page.

Next time, photos of the sweater I've been working on. And it might even be finished...

I love your crazy socks! They do look like a lot of fun, when it gets cold again you can slip in those and have a pina colada and pretend that you are somewhere warmer!

Ooh, the pina colada sounds wonderful! I'll have to remember to have one next time I go out :)
