Hurrah, I’ve finished my Rainbow Wanderer socks! It feels a little mismatched to finish such cheerful socks, with the weather outside being so dreary and grey, but I very much love them nonetheless. Somehow I like the contradiction, maybe in the future I should knit Christmas sweaters in summer.
My expectations for this pattern was fidgety colourwork and threads of yarn all over the place, and both actually weren’t that bad. The colourwork construction is super easy and with just a little bit of effort, major rainbow knots are easily avoided. The rest of the sock construction is also fairly easy, and I really liked the structure in the form of varying forms of rain(downpour, shower and drizzle). In the beginning I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to use a white background or maybe baby blue or grass green, but I think this combination works nicely. Plus the white was leftover yarn, so win-win!
I also still have rainbow yarn left, so I was thinking of making some fingerless mitts with a rainbow on the side. Although for now I’m happy to go back to knitting with a maximum of two threads, at least a little while.
As a little bonus I give you these pictures of my cat. As a rule, whenever I bring out the camera to photograph my knitting he gets super jealous and will lie on my work or do whatever necessary to prevent me from getting decent pictures. This time however he made the (nearly) fatal error of sniffing my feet (surely not a good idea). I captured the precious moment on camera of course.
