UFO Socks

2T thigh highs or normal socks, whatever.
Crazy bright neon paired with tonal grey and black knit up a fun pair of "UFO" socks. My dear friend Jen sent me this yarn around Christmas and I was really anxious to see what kind of "fabric" it created... the colors in the skein were so bold and concentrated in skein form.

As it turns out, it was from Sunrise Fiber company with whom I've had no other experience.  But this was really nice tightly wound sock yarn, and the color was fast... almost no bleeding when I soaked them.

They knit up quickly.  I started with the toes first so that I didn't create any waste... so they are longish and also have a really tall ribbed cuff.  I think I'll be thankful for that when the weather gets chilly again.

Any my knitwear model was completely unconcerned about the fact that the fit was less than perfect. Love her.
