Nothing Says Summer Like Wool Socks

These Neapolitan socks look tasty, and I hope my sister things so too. I held off giving them to her since they are already overdue and I finished them on Wednesday when the temperature got up to 103 degrees and she wasn't needing a pair of wool socks in this weather!

They took over a month, mostly because I have been lacking in concentration lately. But eventually I pulled them off. Even with some funky Kitchener stitch in which I somehow stitched through the back loops. I'll just call that a customized detail, not a mistake.

Do you see how the striping worked out on the heels? I love that detail, and it wasn't intentional, the stripes just worked out right. I love that kind of happy accident.

one skein of Vesper Neapolitan
US size 1 1/2 bamboo DPNs

Today I cast on for a new sock, and I'm ready to start the heel flap, so this is zipping along. In fact, most of this was knit while the kids played at the wading pool.

The perfectly striped heels are awesome. What's the new pattern? Waving Lace?
