FO-Simple socks for Nicole

Last week I was able to pick up my needles and knit again! The pain in my elbow was down, and I tried to not knit more than an jour at a time. So far, so good!
I knit this pair of fun socks for my friend Nicole, who took the time to make me some awesome die cuts with her Silhouette. I offered to pay her for her time and she declined. So I made her socks :)
Super basic stockinette pattern. 64 stitch cast on. Alternated colors every 4 rows. I used Knit Picks yarn in Chroma & Stroll. The yarn was really nice to work with, and there are so many colors! I can't wait to start a pair for myself. Maybe three or four pair!

The colors just make me happy. Giddy, even.
Nicole got her socks today, and they fit (whew!) and she likes them (double whew!)
There is nothing quite as awesome as a pair of hand knit socks. I will never get tired of making them.

She doesn't just like them, she LOVES them. Thank you for being so thoughtful and such a great friend. So happy your elbow is feeling better! XO
