Rainbow Swirl

I bought some of this rainbow striped yarn on a bit of a whim. (You know, they were almost out of it and I didn't want to miss the boat so to speak.) I decided to make a pretty plain sock to show off the fabulous stripes.

Yarn - Knit Picks Felici in Rainbow (and yes it's all gone, but there are lots of other lovely colors.)
Pattern - My own (but I'd change a few things if I were to make this again.)

I actually used my 9" Hiya Hiya circular needles for this one. I don't usually like them, but if I'm not knitting a pattern, they work OK. And they are FAST! I made this sock in about 1 1/2 days.

I'm still plugging away on the lace cardigan. The requires concentration (i.e.; no kids around) and I don't have much quiet time to knit right now. So I do a few rows when I can. I'm to the yoke for the body and about 1/2 done with the first sleeve.

Very bright and cheery socks. They will be great on a cold, cloudy winter day! I wondered how that yarn knitted up. May have to order some for myself.
