I still have five pairs of socks in various stages of completion but last week I also started a “shorty” pair, based on this Instagram challenge:

The challenge was to pick a variegated yarn from your stash and knit the designer’s pattern, and I had a neon rainbow skein from 2021 (far right in the pic) AND already owned the pattern. I thought knitting a short pair in two weeks would be easy, except I just haven’t had a lot of work meetings to knit in the last couple weeks.

But they’ll get finished eventually, even if it won’t be by Friday. And look at that rainbow pastel variegated action! These might need a pink pompom on the heel, too–stay tuned.
