It's been so long, I've almost forgotten what it feels like to post a Finished Object, especially a pair of socks. All my grand plans of a pair of socks a month have gone by the wayside, and truly, I have wondered if my sock mojo was gone for good. This pair has brought it all back, though, and now all I want to do is cast on for another pair of socks!
Pattern - Spring Forward, from knitty.com
Yarn - Handdyed from Knitty Dirty Girl, an etsy seller who is no longer dyeing yarn, sadly.
Needles - 2.5mm wooden DPNs
Notes - After the drama of the two socks not matching, and getting the yarn ready to re-knit, I wasn't sure I would be happy with these socks. I followed the pattern exactly, however, and I love them. I can't get over how simple the lace pattern is; I am usually the kind of person who has to continually refer back to the pattern or chart, but this lace pattern is so intuitive even I could remember it. I am sincerely hoping that these socks are meant for me, although somewhere in the back of my mind is the thought that they are a gift, even if I am not sure who the recipient is yet. It may be part of my twisted thought process that thinks I have to give away all nice things, instead of keeping them for myself, but then again, maybe not. We'll see. I definitely do want to build up my sock wardrobe, and these really are so pretty.
