Rainbow herring

I finished these socks a long time ago, sometime in May.

They are the Red Herring pattern from Knitty, made with Noro Kureyon Sock and gray Knitpicks Palette.

They really are both the same length. I must have been holding my legs funny or something. :p

The Kureyon Sock is very interesting. I didn't mind working with it, having worked with Noro before, I knew what to expect. We'll see if the socks soften up as much as the other Noro I've used has.

I did a short-row heel rather than the afterthought heel the pattern called for.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the colorwork. I haven't done a lot of it in the past, but I can see myself doing much more in the future.

I love them! So cheerful.

Very nice :) I have a skein of Noro in my stash, but haven't brought myself to use it yet.
