Sock it to me

Sock it to me is right! This pair of socks came out better than my first two attempts. I'd like to think I'll get better and better at making sock...via crochet anyway. I have a long way to go when it comes to knitting socks. Anyway these socks are so unique in the striping pattern. The toe is fairly normal, if that's a word I could use. The cuff is another story altogether. It's more like splashes of color on one side but the other side is striped. I think this happened because I worked in rows rather than rounds as I did in the toe portion.

It's hard to believe that this is even a set/pair of socks let alone one sock but it's true. I think this uniqueness gives these socks really great character. Certainly, I'll never see anyone else wearing these socks. I can't wait to make more! First thing I have to do is come up with a pattern. I kinda winged this one taking a little from this pattern and a little from that one.
