WIP Wednesday

...aka Sock Knitter's ADD.

I'm alternating between 3 different sock patterns.  I'll do a cuff on one pair, a pattern repeat on another pair, and a heel turn on a third.  It's goofy but it suits me.

Superhero Socks:

I've had the Captain America yarn for ages.  It was from my shiny yarn phase.  The picture doesn't show it but there's silver in the red/blue yarn.  I happened upon the Starry Night sock pattern and though it would translate from fine art inspired socks to graphic novel inspired socks.  I wasn't sure about it at first, but now that I see the picture, it looks a lot like what I wanted.

Double Double socks:
It is the latest Club Mac pattern (inspired by Macbeth).  It's hard to see, but it has a pretty lace and cable pattern.  It's coming out well, but it will be a real nail-biter to see if there's enough yarn to finish the sceond sock.

This is April's knit from stash sock.

The Superhero socks look great. Very complicated.

Thanks to you both. The pattern's really not that complicated. I think the Captain America yarn makes it look tricky when it really isn't.
