Slivers of Sunlight.
Cold weather clothes are, generally, not as fun as their warm weather counterparts. Warmth, for me, is a priority above all else during this season, and very often I find myself in a uniform of grey and black, blending into the monochromatic background that winter in a concrete kingdom brings with it.
Still, even on the grayest days winter has to offer, slivers of sunlight can be found peeking between buildings, a reminder that spring will be back. In very much the same way, little pops of color on top of the black and the grey help to brighten my mood and give me a little boost. It's still perpetually dark outside, but we've made it to other side of January, and the sun sticks around a while longer each day. How do you cope with winter?
Pattern: White Stuff by Juliana Frychel, modified to eliminate patterning across the back of the leg and include a longer cuff.
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Sockenwolle

I LOVE these! Such a great way to add snuggly colour, even if it is the middle of summer here ;)

I love those socks! Those colors and the stripes -- PERFECT! They also so great with your boots and look super warm.

Wonderful socks! I admire you for being able to knit knee socks. That's a lot of stitches! :-)

why no patterning on the back of the leg? for warmth?
I didn't pattern the back of the leg, because I was worried it would be too bulky. I'm terribly boring with my socks. I like things pretty vanilla, with a little swirl- mostly, due to comfort. :-D
