Rainbows and Snow

I finished the Noro socks and took a quick pic outside during last week's blizzard. I did it before the snow and wind really picked up...when I could barely see the house across the street. Luck was on my side because these socks match almost as perfectly as you can get 2 Noro things to match~~and it was all by chance :) Click on the pictures to get a better look...

56 stitch basic stockinette sock

women's size small/med

needles: size 2 dpn's

yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock, color #S185


I knit these a little longer than I usually do. I wanted to use as much of the skein as I could (I still have almost half a skein left.) And sometimes you just need a bit of color peeking out from your boots, lol!

After the Noro socks were finished I whipped up another quick pair...

56 stitch basic stockinette sock

needles: size 2 dpn's

yarn: Walk Away by Yarn Bee, color #02 Footsy


I hope your weekend has been lovely ;) We didn't get our forecasted snowstorm this weekend. Yesterday the wind was freezing cold, but today is blue skies and sunshine! Sending you all a little Colorado Sunshine!!!

Those socks are wonderful and you whip them up so fast.

Your socks are so beautiful.
Good that the snowstorm missed you. Not very funny at this time of the year.

Anne said...

Staci. They are wonderful. Wish I could knit that quickly! lol

I love these socks. Every time I see a "sock post" from you I think...some day, some day. And that day never comes. I am just terrified of making heels. I'm a righty who knits like a lefty. I've been told this is the "Norwegian style" so no one can show me how to turn the heels properly.

Your cleverness with needles never cease to amaze me! Darn, I should be able to knit basic socks, shouldn't I? I love that Noro yarn. Gorgeous, gorgeous colour!

I'm so wild for your socks!

Sonda in OR said...

I just love those socks! Fabulous!

Melanie said...

Really nice socks! I took a learn-to-knit class awhile back, and I enjoyed it, but kept thinking while I was knitting, "Ya know, I could be cross-stitching right now." So I don't knit anymore.

Cool blue boots, too!

Lisa said...

I just love your socks, I wish i could knit, my feet are always cold, especially when I
i'm having a flare up. I'm sure these would keep them snug

Jean said...

I love that you not only finished one pair of socks - you "whipped up" another pair!! You must be a fast knitter! I plodded- as opposed to "whipped up" the last pair of socks I made. Good for you!! :)
