Finished Object: Neon Socks!

green and orange socks, model standing on her toes
Enough complaining! I have completed the neon socks, and the grrl says she loves them.

As you can see in the photos, I abandoned the idea of a picot cuff and went with the very simple but effective rolled top.

These are knit from Baby Cashmerino, which provided the neonest colours we could find. She wanted bright yellow and hot pink, so this acid green and vibrant orange are her second choice.

both socks, heels together, so the contrast heels look like chequerboards
The sock is a basic sock, no pattern necessary. They're knit toe-up with a short-row contrasting heel. The butterfly on the cuff is from the Kai-Mei pattern I knit recently.
