new socks for a new season
posted by soe 11:19 pm

Our internet seems to be liking us better this weekend, so I’m able to post from home tonight.

Ten days ago was the first day of spring, and I hurriedly finished up a new pair of socks to be able to wear them to celebrate.

They remind me of rainbow sherbet.


The pattern is Spring Forward.

Spring Garden with a Spring Garden

The Yarn is Mama E’s C*Eye*ber Fiber sock yarn in the Spring Garden Colorway.

A Profusion of Color

They go with my green Mary Janes and my comfy green pants.

First Tulip

They also go with the first tulip of the year.

A Complete Pair

It was so fun to wear new socks on the first day of a new season. I’m thinking I may celebrate every season that way from now on…

As for Sock Madness, I’m nearly to the toe decreases on the second sock and then just have to add the afterthought heel. I’m hoping to finish tomorrow night. This is how they looked on Friday morning:

Sock Madness Progress

I hope that will enable me to advance to Round #2.
