I love these socks. I found them on Ravelry, waited till the pattern was published in English (they were originally in German, and I'm sure that my annoying, begging emails did nothing to hurry the process), and decided that I can actually probably knit them.
I'd planned for them to be the next socks I knit; they're so colorful and perfect for just about any of my stash of sock yarn. Except Passion. They're not right for the Passion.
My quest continues. Thank you for the pattern suggestions and life-saving measures so far!
Amended to include link to pattern. I have to knit these soon!
