Pattern: Ballet School Drop Out Sockettes by Inspire Knits
Yarn: Holiday Yarns FlockSock Sock Yarn in Orion's Nebula
Needles: US 1
I made these ones a bit longer than the last ones so that I don't end up inadvertently participating in the ancient practice of foot-binding, but the result is opposite of what I intended. I thought maybe I'd be able to keep them up better if they actually fit. Nope.
My friend told me last week that I should revive the fashion of socks with pom-poms on the heels because those would keep them up. I laughed at the suggestion, but she's totally right. Besides, with socks as obnoxiously bright as these, what harm are a couple of little pom-poms? :)
I'm now grappling with whether I should make more. I probably will, if only to use up sock yarn. They are pretty cute. It's really just the addition of shoes and walking in said shoes that disrupt the sock-wearing. I wear them around the house quite happily. There will probably be more. Not next week, though, so never fear.
