So, I have become a sock knitter in recent years, and I mostly blame cool self-patterning sock yarns like these. The Super Soxx from Lang are super fun! Take a closer look at the wacky stripe pattern. It's all zigzaged on top of a lovely color fade.
I am also a sucker for stripes of any kind, so the gorgeous gradient stripes of the Twin Soxx are calling to me. This one in particular is amazing...I mean, it's a pastel rainbow gradient self-striping sock yarn.
It's no wonder I was sucked onto the sock bandwagon. These are too awesome to pass up!
