Star Spangled Man with a Plan socks.
This started out after I watched Winter Soldier with friends and proclaimed that “I want to make Captain America socks,” Implying to make socks for Steve Rogers (give him some 1940’s comfort, if you know what I mean), but everyone implied that I wanted to design Captain America Socks. So I had to make my own.
I have plans for another variation.
I used Russian Joins for the stripes so I have NO ENDS TO WEAVE IN,just the ones from the star and casting off.
Kind of disappointed in the star, it looks nice when it’s not on my feet, but it stretches too much, slightly distorting the image.
Yarns I used were KnitPicks Stroll Glimmer in Jay, Pomegranate, and White.
Didn’t initially choose the yarn because of the Glimmer, I had 2 balls of Jay in my stash and the colours worked so well.
Felt weird knitting these socks that scream “MURICA” as a Canadian.
