I finished my Rainbow for Pride socks last night just after 10. To be honest I didn’t think I’d get them done but I forced myself to put off everything else to get them done.
The yarn is White Birch Fiber Arts merino/nylon self striping in the A Pessimist’s Rainbow colorway. The pattern is the one I keep in my head: 64 stitches with a heel flap and wide toe.
If you look at the order of the colors of the rainbow you’ll see I knit the socks from different ends of the yarn. What I did was wind the yarn in a ball, knit one sock and then reroll the remaining yarn so the order would change. I think it’s a fun way to make your non matching striped socks intentionally non matching.
I really enjoyed the yarn. It’s a slightly thicker fingering weight which will make cozy warm socks. The colors are vibrant and the dyeing done beautifully. I will use this yarn again and I highly recommend you give it a try.
Thanks to Sarah for running the Rainbow Socks for Pride month KAL. It was fun watching all the beautiful rainbow socks.
