Cute pattern idea for someone who would love shark socks:
Our color this month is grey.

I finished my second stripey shorty sock for myself. This pair took a bit more finagling to come out close to identical than the ones I made for my sister-in-law last month, and they didn’t come out completely identical, but they are close enough that you have to really look to see the differences. The only exception is on the first sock where there is a solid blue line, a solid grey line, and a solid white line, rather than the faux fair isle sections, but that was the yarn and I couldn’t do anything about it. I’m still super pleased with how cute they came out! Together they are barely 60 grams and I actually had enough left over that I could have easily done the heels in the same yarn, but I like it with the grey heels, and they also give me the extra entry for the July color, so it’s all good!
I finished my first zig-zag lace two-color sock. The pink is a hand-dyed cashmere/superwash blend that a friend gave me, and it is SO pretty (so much prettier than it looks in the picture, it’s actually a hot pink variegated with almost white pale pink and almost lavender) and SO soft! I’m really happy with how well it turned out and can’t wait to finish the second one so I can wear them!
