german flag socks

Knitbuddy Carola surprised me with this Regia nation sock yarn that stripes in the colors of the German flag. I was so excited to knit them for my upcoming trip to Germany that I finished them in a week. I learned that you need to knit Regia yarn from the inside of the ball to get the colors to come out in the right direction (if you're knitting a top-down sock, that is) and used extra black yarn from the other end to work the entire heel in black and keep the color sequence in tact across the ankle. I am going to have so much fun wearing these in Germany!
