I'm quite partial to simple socks myself but they can be so boring to knit, especially with a solid colour. Heather's Dodge and Parry pattern is simultaneously intricate enough to keep one's focus, yet unfussy in design. I heart it so much.
As taken from the pattern's description:
Not for those who are beige of heart, Ciel is a sweet monster who likes bright colours and the latest fashion trends. Use up to eight colours to make her really eye-popping!
We'll be selling Ciel Kits for the first time at the Knitter's Frolic in Toronto at the end of April. Be sure to come say hi to hipster Ciel!
