http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/rainbow-drops-p-171.html Well these socks remind me of them. Though instead of such a cute, childhood memory, name they have actually become known as my 'clown barf' socks.
Reggia Sock Yarn. 2.75mm dpns. Plain ole vanilla socks with an afterthought heel. Long slow knit because plain socks are for knit night, car journeys and odd moments where I can't concentrate.
