Another FO - Socks!

Magic Stripes on the Magic Loop!

Magic Stripes Socks

This yarn, Lion Brand Magic Stripes in Jellybean, has been in my stash since the beginnings of my knitting. It feels like a nice sturdy sock yarn, but the dye-job looks a little splotchy, like maybe the dye-master was tipping back a few during the night shift, but yet, they still appeal to me in a hand-painted sort of way.

The socks were knitted two at once, toe up, on a 32" 3.0 mm Addi circular. I got them from an Ebay seller out of Hong Kong. For only $8, who could resist? Now I'm starting to wonder, could they be they fakes?

The rest of my knitting looks untouched to the untrained eye. Though I've added three more inches on my top, 20 more inches on my scarf, an a few inches on the other pair of socks, in photos they'd still look relatively the same.


  1. Anything from Hong Kong is fake. Just kidding. They look awesome. Isn't the 2 socks at once on magic loop awesome?!?!?

  2. Love the socks! They're so cheerful!

  3. really cute, I love the colors

  4. Hi Mei,

    My first pair of socks is using LionBrand Magic Stripes too.

    Jellybean is a nice colour, too bad it is not available in Spotlight.
