The '50s Convertible - and More Yarn
Yarn: Opal Socken Zirkus (Circus Socks? There are clowns on the label.)
Pattern: My own
Needles: #1 Quicksilver dpns
Comments: The color of these socks just reminds me of the 1950s. I call them convertibles because the tops can be folded down and still look sleek because the stockinette stitch then sits discreetly underneath the ribbing without adding bulk to the ankle area.
The yarn has a Shetland feel and look to it. It's very nice, but also very different from the Shi Bui or Socks that Rock yarn in that it doesn't have the tight twist that they do.
Speaking of Socks that Rock yarn, somebody in this household was a very bad girl!
