The World's Ugliest Socks

Bar None. And just in case you aren't convinced:

Project: My First Toe Ups by Ann Budd, from the Summer 2007 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Socks that Rock, Medium Weight, Christmas Rocks colorway
Needles: Size 2 1/2

And despite what my husband says, they do not glow in the dark. Really.

I'm glad that you can knit with wool again! If you 'need' some good non wool sock yarn, I really do like Panda Cotton from Crystal Palace (I think). It is a little splitty but it knits up great!

Well, I love them! But I love bright colors and funky looks. These look great with the blue jeans you have on. I'm assuming that's your feet, anyway.

Where did you get the yarn? I seem to get my best stuff on-line since I hate shopping in person.

Did you enjoy the toes up process?

Wow! Those are quite bright. I'm not a fan of pooling and STR seems to do that alot. At least they're warm right? The colors are pretty though.

Elizabeth, look what I found while I was surfing the Net. Deja vu!

Uggh. Terrible.

Oh man, I hope it's not rude to agree with you. What was Tina thinking?! Eek, those colors are pretty bad. I've got some ugly socks too though. :-)
