These Socks Go to Eleven
That's exactly what I am calling this project on my Ravelry project page.
This is the gorgeous sock yarn I purchased from this etsy vendor last month. I wasn't sure what I wanted to knit with it -- I did look for a pattern called "Angels" because I wanted to call them "Neon Angels on the Road to Ruin" with a rock and roll nod to the Runaways, but alas. I also thought about knitting Monkey, but, to be honest, I don't really like the way really wildly colored yarn looks in that pattern. So I knit up a swatch and let that be the deciding factor.
Hmmm. . . it will knit up in very thin stripes. Aha! A Chevron pattern would be perfect!
So, even though I did knit up some socks in a Chevron pattern before (and they sure were wild), I decided to knit them again, but better.
And the name? It's a reference to Spinal Tap, of course!
I'll leave you with some other pretties -- some vintage knitting, crochet and tatting magazines that I got at a yard sale the other day for a quarter each!
Here are a few that I picked up at Brimfield Antique Fair last month:
Don't envy me too hard.
