Nothing plain, ole about socks knit with that yarn. I'm thinking they'll be spectacular.

Neon lime green--that's not "plain ole" in any of my books!

Yes, I'd like to see some progress, too. These are going to be a treat to see.

I agree. You can't possibly have plain ole socks with that yarn. You will be able to walk around at night without a flashlight! lol I love the color!!!

I like strong colours. Lol

I'm strongly drawn to saturated colours - our bedroom is painted a rich deep blue and dh's office is painted a rich green.

I will, Woodi. It's slow going with skinny yarn and a demanding 6 week old. Also, I'm having trouble seeing the stitches even with my glasses on. Been two years since I had my eyesight checked.

Cool way to get your veggies! What size needles are you using? I love day-glo neon socks, I'm planning some psychedelic ones.

Size 1.

I bought a skein of psycho colour sock yarn ages ago...it's called Footee or something. It's like hot pink, bright blue....hee hee. Life is too short for boring!
