Snap! Pour! Fizz! Ahh, the ritual of pouring a tall one. Knit yourself an homage to the beveled glass tankards and thick foam of a perfect glass of beer (or soda!).

So add a little buzz to your wardrobe with these bespoke socks and feel free to choose the colors that best suit your fav fizzy beverage - I know I’ll be making a pink pair with white foam for my favorited rose kombucha! Or feel free to leave off the color change for a nifty ribbed, unisex sock. My 5 year old nephew calls pins and needles in his foot “fizzy feet”, which seemed like the perfect name.

Note - although knitting while under the influence can be fun, I’d highly recommend sticking to something sweet and unfermented for the heel turning so you don’t have to frog too much. #askmehowiknow
