I never really thought I’d put the word "coolest" in the same sentence as the word "sock" but there it is, there’s no turning back now. With all the GDC news we’ve had this week, I thought it might be nice to step back, exhale, and take in some footwear inspired by a 30 year old video game.
And I wasn’t joking, if you know how to knit you can head over this website and get all the patterns you need to make these bad boys yourself. You can totally customise them with your own high score!
From the site:
"Drawn to the look of Norwegian black and white stranded knitting, but think Xs and Os are better left to Henry VIII and Ms. Réage? Want to get retro with your needles, but feel legwarmers are a little too Flashdance? Need a little jailbait striping in your life, but not the record? Just want the neatest 2D feet this side of the century? These may just be the socks for you…or someone you love."
