Aren't they fun? And see how they match? I wasn't even going for that. Not with this yarn. I don't think it would have mattered in the least if the stripe pattern was off. But it worked out. Here's a good heel shot: I was so excited to wear them this morning, I actually had breakfast. Fruity Pebble Socks. That's what I've got. And of course I had to wear shoes to display them in all their glory: I'm in love. I can't wait to knit my second pair. I won't be using this pattern again though. I'm not in love with the ribbing all the way down the instep. The pattern is "Simple Socks" from "Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles" by Cat Bordhi. The yarn is Regia Ringel in the color "Clown" (#5048). I used just over one skein, starting the second skein 1/4 of the way into the gusset. I'll buy one more skein and be able to get another pair out of them, with a longer ankle if I want. I think a pattern without so much ribbing, specifically purl stitches, would show off the fun quality of the yarn much better.
