Stripey Summer Socks

I am nothing if not consistent.
And I am consistently drawn to colors a 5 year old would choose. But these look nice and summery. That's all I really have to say in defense of these socks. That, and the yarn was on sale.

Just your basic top down socks, with a garter stitch heel flap. I do really like the thick stripes this makes. In retrospect, I wish I had chosen an afterthought heel so I didn't mess up the striping, but I still think it came out okay.

However, one can only have so many pink, obnoxious socks. Even I'm getting tired of it, and cast on plain black.

In Summary:
Pattern: 64 sts, 2x2 ribbing, garter stitch heel flap, regular toe
Yarn: Trekking XXL (75% superwash wool, 25% nylon)
Needles: Size US 1 (2.25 mm) dpn
Time: About two weeks of light knitting
Cost: $11
