Rainbow Brite Socks

I'm a child of the late '80s and early '90s. The coolest outfit I owned in kindergarten was a New Kids on the Block t-shirt paired with black and neon spandex shorts. I watched the Muppet Babies and Fraggle Rock. I roller skated to "U Can't Touch This" and "Ice Ice Baby" at the local rink.  So, when I saw this rainbow sock yarn, I immediately knew I had to make Rainbow Brite socks. Oh yeah.

They're my first finished pair of fingering weight socks. I love them! They're so darn bright and cheerful. Perfect for thwarting Murky and Lurky's evil plans to rid the world of color...Sorry...I got caught up in my Rainbow Brite fantasy for a moment. They are the most fun socks I own, though.

And they'd look great with some spandex and a NKOTB shirt, right?

P.S. These socks also remind me of Alice. She knits and crochets the most colorful creations and shares them all on her blog, Crochet with Raymond.

  4. Since we don't get to see the top of your body in those sock shots, can we assume that you're wearing spandex and a NKOTB tee? LOL! Your new socks are the happiest socks I've seen in a long time and you should know that before I started to actually read your post, my first thought was "Muppets!"

  5. They must be so happy to put on :)

  6. They look warm, cheerful, colourful and pretty..... love them!!!
