A reasonable person, say, one who is going to be attending the Sock Summit in less than four weeks’ time, would probably start to worry about preparing for that. A reasonable person might have already started their homework for the workshops at said Sock Summit, particularly when one of them involves knitting the entire leg of a colourwork stocking.

A reasonable person would probably be working on these things, rather than thinking about things to wear at said Sock Summit, and would therefore probably be starting class homework instead of a pair of electric green and purple knee-high socks.


It’s a good thing, then, that I’m not an entirely reasonable person.


  1. wow. love your colour combo! wicked rocks!

  2. Oh my god, those are so hot.

    PS Are you ever going to write up the pattern for those argyle knee highs? I cannot overstate enough how badly I want them.

    Beautiful! (And homework is highly over-rated)

  4. Well, at least with these socks it will be easy to spot you at the Summit! 🙂

    Being reasonable is so last year 😉 This jazzes things up no end! What a great daring colour combo. Rock on!

  6. Ooooh, I love those, though. The time to be reasonable is two weeks before the summit; you’ve got plenty of time. 🙂

    You may not be totally reasonable, you will have awesome feet!

  8. You forgot mention that the full leg is not for a small child either! 😉

  9. Great colour combo! I’m so jealous you’re going to sock summit.

  10. You know what though, those green-and-purple knee highs are going to be badass. I can’t wait to see what they look like on.

  11. Woohoo! Those look great!

    I haven’t started on my Sock Summit prep yet, either. Guess I’m not reasonable…

  12. Those are gorgeous! So bright and fun…

  13. those are awesome socks! long live stripes!!

  14. Great colours!

  15. What fun colors! You can be reasonable after those fab socks are finished. You’ll have plenty of time. 😉

    Those are going to be some fancy socks! No worries about being reasonable… I should be doing some packing today – since we get the keys to our new place on tuesday… instead … I’m researching faroese shawls…..

  17. Love those colours!

    My daughter would love those socks!! What yarn are you using?
    Love your blog!

  19. Wow, I like that colour combination! Looks like fun.

  20. Great socks and thanks for the reminder, I completely forgot I had homework for the summit!

  21. For sure! Love that color combo and would love to know what yarn you’re using!

  22. But a reasonable person then wouldn’t have such wicked awesome socks to wear at Sock Summit. 🙂

    Love, love, love the colors! Have always* liked purple and green, and if they are at all close to what my monitor is showing me, they are going to look awesome. You’ll model them, right?

    *Once I grew up and started paying attention to colors other than blue. I have a weakness for purple and red, too.

  23. But you live on the East Coast. Sock Summit is on the West Coast. Surely there is a very long plane ride, perhaps with additional waiting for connections in airports, in which something will be required to entertain you. 😉

  24. Those are going to absotively RAWK!
