TRON SOCKS!

Remember the TRON socks I was teasing? Funny thing, the pattern is FINALLY READY for release. It's been tested and approved, ready to go.

Tron Socks

Surprise!

I'm sure by now everyone knows about TRON, but just in case:

"A hacker is literally abducted into the world of a computer and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program." -IMDb

In 1982, this was very forward thinking. There was also a fantastic arcade game based on the film at the time that my brother used to play. Now there are socks, as well.

Tron Socks

This project is intended to get you off the computer and into some knitting, but you’ll need to follow a crooked path to make your escape. Each sock zigzags around the leg and down the foot. The cuff and heel are worked in pixel-inspired garter blocks. You can work both socks the same, making them angle in unison, or you can work them in mirror image, your choice.

I'm sure I didn't invent this, but I'm happy to have hit upon this garter block stitch pattern (on heel and cuff) while playing around with the pixel concept. I think they look like they belong in an old video game. Am I nuts?

I like these very much. The yarn also. I think I need this pattern!! I have sock yarn dying to get out of the bag and onto the needles.
Great job.
Happy new year
