      I didn't think I would like the blue with the teal and orange but I think the black stripe makes it really work.

      I agree, I don't think the colors would work very well if the black wasn't there.

    My yellow socks are finished - bad color, as it’s dark and cloudy here.

      Those are absolutely gorgeous! The pattern is beautiful and I even love the color and I am not usually a fan of yellow. 💛

      Thank you, Nyssareen! I don’t know if I’m a fan of yellow either, but this color was very easy to see this particular pattern.

    It's now officially fall. I have socks on my feet! I started knitting these while we were camping earlier this month. Then it got HOT again. But today was in the low 50s, rainy and windy. A good day to start wearing socks again. (Yes, and do spend all summer barefoot.) These have nothing to do with the theme, however. I just used up scraps.

      They are really pretty! Kind of a Southwest vibe. We're in that weird in between where it's 79 one day, 50 overnight and then 93 the next day. But sock weather is definitely creeping in.

      These look fabulous and don’t look like scraps at all.

        Notice the toes. The yarn was perfectly lined up for twin socks and all the sudden the patterning of the yarn changed.

        Figured I better go ahead and post my one finished sock since I doubt I'll finish the other one by tomorrow. It's possible but not likely. Lol I'll finish them this weekend but not in time for this thread. I'm going to wear the heck out of these this Fall. 😁

          Thanks for the prompt, lovestostitch ! I finished these at the beginning of the month, and forgot to photograph them. These are for a friend we're visiting next month. They don't fit the theme ... but they look good!
