Warning! Hazmat Suits Required


I refuse to answer any questions regarding the bobble yarn that so delicately rims the top of these socks. Suffice it to say that it's a long story involving Asherbanipal, a radish, two feemsters, and a Batmobile.

They certainly don't lack a thing in the "bright" department. The bobbles do add a nice balancing touch and a bit of playfulness. I like them.

Nanette said...

I absolutely LOVE them. Colors like that turn on some happy button in my brain. :)

JelliDonut said...

Happy Button--that says it all.

Manise said...

Despite the brightness I love them and the bobbles!

Would the receiver of this work of art be so brave as to model this work of art in combination with the tuxedo?

Anna M said...

Holy Carp! The person wearing those could power the Bat Light.

Connie said...

If loving those socks is wrong; then I don't ever want to be right again.

Carola said...

I LOVE these socks! Even though my favorite color is black. Go figure...

Judith said...

GORGEOUS!

Verificatio word: slatey. Exactly what these socks are not.

Susan (and SmokeyBlue in spirit) said...

And you did not go blind knitting them either.
Very upbeat socks. If you lived in the cold grey/brown north someone would steal them from you.

LittleBerry said...

thinking of Roy in a Black Tux with bow tie and those is really making me smile to myself...

Excellent spining an dknitting though all the same....

gayle said...

Covet. Bigtime.

KPiep said...

Ooohhh......those look fabulous! As soon as the picture popped up on my screen, the Green Woman appeared out of nowhere and started poking me, trying to convince me that we must find some fiber/yarn in that color right now!

Soo said...

They brought a smile to my face!!!!

LittleBerry said...

Thanks Fleegle :o) for your kind comments and the fact you still 'read me'.

I look forward to seeing your embroidery. I love Japanese embroidery did a sampler once. I love the silk, most of the designs but not the strict discipline of this colour for this motif IYKWIM?

Laritza said...

Told you they would turn out lovely!

Jane said...

I LOVE these socks! The bobbles make a statement. What that statement is I'm not sure but they arenot to be ignored LOL.

KnittyAndColor said...

There are freaking amazing!!! I am so honored to be a part of such an amazingly fun and ridiculously bright pair of socks :)

Carol said...

Batmobile? I think not. Clearly a Batcycle was involved!

Randi said...

LOVE these socks!

Kathy Kathy Kathy said...

I like them.

Peggy said...

Can I send you a bill for a new monitor? Mine seems to have melted shortly after the sock picture was loaded.

Oh sooo very neon!

Experimental Knitter said...

These are the tuxedo socks, right?
They would have looked great on the wedding party last month....

Leslie said...

I've had such a hard day here that I owe you BIG TIME for the good (and so far only) laugh. Absolutely smile inducing socks - they definitely belong with a tuxedo or with sandals under a bridal gown.

Margot said...

So, is this one of the knits in your book - 20 Projects to Set Your Hair On Fire?
These look like like such a fun project from spin to knit.

Batty said...

Those are utterly brilliant. I covet those socks. They almost glow in the dark!

Judith said...

LOVE (eleventybillion)!!!!
