FO Friday: Neon Time Traveller Socks

The yarn is all my dad’s fault. And the fault of some of my Facebook friends for posting about this fabulous NEON!!!! yarn from Regia. The pattern is very straightforward and wonderfully uncomplicated. The fit appears good (but no modelled shots, sorry) and the irregular rib pattern made for a semi-mindless project. All-in-all, I’m very pleased with the whole thing!
