My Rouge Rainbow socks I knit as a somewhat cathartic attempt to heal from a surprise breakup. I started knitting the morning after and ended up knitting the entire leg of the first sock. The pattern is based off of the Yarn Harlot’s Sock Recipe: A Good, Plain Sock. Except this time, I used two different yarns: Classic Elite Yarns Alpaca Sox in Careza and Shibui Knits Socks in a variegated red/orange/yellow/pink shade. The cuff, heel and toe are knit only in Classic Elite, while the leg and foot are knit alternating the two yarns.
I really liked how the socks turned out, and I’m contemplating on doing this with other combinations. I have quite a bit of yarn left over from both yarns; I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it at this point.
