FO: Stripy Socks

Pattern: Pricilla’s Dream Socks, from Favorite Socks
Yarn: .5 skein Louet Gems Pearl (Linen Gray), .5 skein Wollmeise (Wilder Mohn); size 1.5 US needle

These socks were wickedly fast.  I started them on April 24th and finished blocking them on May 1st, which is 7 days (I think?).  I just couldn’t stop knitting them, which worked out well; they’re “due” today.  I made them for a friend who hasn’t received a pair of socks from me yet, even though she had requested some.  I just forgot that I hadn’t given her any yet!  These really remind me of her personality: bright, colorful, and friendly.  I did do some experimenting with jogless joins for the stripes, with limited success.  I think there will be many more stripy socks in my future.  Plus they are good for stashbusting.
