After falling in love with this colorway of Noro Kureyon Sock, I spent forever trying to find a pattern for it. The colors are too overpowering for fancy stitches, but I don't have the patience for stockinette on small needles.  Cheesy I finally settled on the Cable Rib socks from the book Favorite Socks. It's got a small cable down each side of the sock, which added some interest to the knitting.
But the yarn falls into typical Kureyon territory. The colors are gorgeous, but the yarn is very scratchy... So I love the look of these socks, but I'm not sure if I'll wear them.



Adorable little cable!

Well you could always wear socks under them to save them from itching you to death..
If you're ever gonna be around people and just wearing socks so you can show them off
Cheesy

Super cute socks.   Very festive.    Perfect for Pride.   They would also make great stockings at Christmas.
If you don't want them, I'll take 'em for my mantle  Wink

I LOVE anything Noro. I think I have a similar colorway in my stash right now... Great socks- if you don't want 'em, I will totally take them Smiley I just don't know if thy'll fit my big fat feet! (size 12 Women, btw) Awesome job.

kiathegiraffe - I didn't even think about wearing socks under them, but that's a good idea. But I do love showing these off. When I was knitting the second sock, I carried the first one around just to show to people who asked what I was knitting.  Cheesy

stevenjames - Thanks a lot, but I think keep them (at least for my own mantle). :-)

FairyWings- Thanks! Rainbow sock monkeys would be cute, but I don't know if I'd be ready to cut up my knitting. I can't even work up the courage to do steeks!

stewd_arts - Noro comes in the prettiest colors, but the texture always gets me... But, yeah, they may not fit you so well. They're just big enough for my little tiny women's size 5 1/2 feet, haha.
