OK, these socks are a little crazy.


Tulip socks by Cookie A

knit in Felici by KnitPicks

Well, really, the socks aren't crazy, but maybe the yarn is? I love this yarn, I love the colors, but I knew I'd be bored knitting a plain sock with it, so I figured I'd give this pattern a try. I think it looks OK and I'll love wearing them, and they're really fun to knit.

What do you think? Do you like them or did I go too far? Will I be kicked out of the Cookie A Sock Club for defacing one of her patterns with my wacky yarn choice??

I think they look good. The regular striping means that the pattern is still visible.

It looks like the perfect combo to me! The yarn and pattern really suit each other. You're not as wacky as you think you are Miss Heather! :)

If anything, your yarn choice enhances the pattern, I think. Love it!

I knit a pair of socks in that EXACT colorway last year and loved them but I just made plain socks out of them. Personally, I'm not too keen on thick stripes + lace pattern. But that's just me. (Basic rib I like though.)
