Spring Fling Socks

Don’t you worry about the sock yarn stash. I’m doing my best to knit it down. I’ve even got proof in the form of a newly finished pair of socks – the tenth pair of 2007, in fact.

I’ve been calling these Spring Fling Socks and they are a gift but I can’t tell you who they are for because the recipient occasionally reads this here blog. I can tell you lots of other things though.

Like how much I love the yarn. It’s Sunshine Yarns in the color “Spring” and it was a gift from Kathy. It’s soft and squooshy and the colors are fabulous.

And I can tell you how I love the 2 X 2 ribbing on the legs. I thought I would get bored with the never-ending knit 2, purl 2, but I actually enjoyed it very much.

And I can also tell you how much I love a traditional heel flap and gusset. Honestly, I never get tired of knitting a heel flap, turning a heel, and picking up stitches. It’s magic, I tell you.

Or how much I love a regular old toe. Doesn’t the sock look like it’s smiling? I’m smiling, too. These took exactly two weeks to finish.

I guess I really love these socks! I don’t love dandelions but I couldn’t help but notice how well the colors of the dandelions match the colors of the socks. And I know someone who does love dandelions. Wanna come over for omelets, Norma?

  5. Oh my Gosh!
    Those are the most beautiful/colorful/fun socks I have ever seen!
    I am new to knitting, and have as yet not completed a pair of socks…. although, I have froged the same pair twice so far……. it is hard being a perfectionist sometimes.
    I did manage to do a miny sock over the weekend. It is hanging on my computer screen here at work. I am so proud!
    How I would love to be able to correspond with someone as talented and addicted to sock knitting as you!
    Thank You for sharing your beautiful creations!
    I will check back to your site often, as it encourages me!
