Socks that Rock

Last year I was at a fiber fest, and the Fold had their booth right behind our guild booth. Well, this color "Boobie 2" really caught my eye. Over and over again, and finally, I caved and bought it. I loved the colors, but then I wondered what on earth I had been thinking because those colors are pretty loud and bright. So it sat for a bit, and then it went into my Yarn Harlot inspired "sock club". I was planning some weekend away knitting and lo and behold this was what I grabbed.
In no way are these colors accurate. Pattern is Scylla, by Fiona Lucas.
 Holy cow!
I am in love with this yarn, it knit up super fast and has been heaven to work with - it has a wonderful squish and spring, and the colors are so vibrant.

Closer but not quite yet.

I have already finished one sock and the other is in the works, about 1/4 done.
These socks do rock! Totally awesome yarn.
