I'm calling these my Sunset Socks even though I realize they don't look particularly sunset-y. The reason is the yarn. I hand-painted it with Kool Aid and my inspiration was the colors in a sunset. The end result in sock form isn't particularly sunset-esque though. I am planning to try again but with longer color stretches and hopefully Sunset v. 2.0 will work out a bit better! You can see a bit of the color progression the way I was envisioning it in the bind-off on the bottom picture.
At any rate. It's KP Bare superwash which is lovely stuff. This is the third pair I've knit with it and I really like it. Very soft stuff!
This is what seems to be becoming my standard toe-up recipe. Magic Cast-on, Widdershins heel, 2x2 rib for a bit at the top, double crochet bind-off. It works for me!
