Red, Red May

It’s Project Spectrum time again, thanks to Lolly, and the color for the month of May is red. I may have mentioned a time or two that I love red. It’s my favorite color, in fact, so I couldn’t be happier about starting Project Spectrum in this way.

I’m participating by knitting red socks.

The yarn is Kim’s, the color is Scarlet Devil, and the pattern – don’t fall over now – is Cable Rib Socks. That’s right, I’m knitting a patterned sock.

Okay, it’s a pretty simple pattern but I do love the cable running down the sides of the leg.

It’s also, thanks to Maryse, Macro May. I’m participating by taking macro shots with lots of red.

Like this one of my crab apple tree blossoms.

And this one of my wee sock stitch marker.

Hooray for Project Spectrum! Hooray for Macro May!

  3. Love your new sock project (and your project bag) and your little stitch marker…total project envy, lol šŸ˜‰

  4. That red looks delicious … I love red! Cable sock is pretty, might have to queue that one up. Great job šŸ™‚

  5. Patterned socks? I almost fell off my chair! LOL…kidding aside, it looks lovely and I love the little stitch marker. šŸ™‚

    I forgot about that colorway….hmmm…. :0)

  6. Red was my mom’s absolute favorite. She often wore it from head to toe, including lipstick, red leather jacket, and red boots! She was a character, and now I love wearing a bit of red to make me think of her!

  7. I really need to get caught up on blogs… red runs a close second to purple with me, especially a robust, rip-roaring red such as you are flourishing today. It’s a great season for macros too, what with spring bustin’ out all over.

  8. It is a beautiful shade of red! I just finished a pair of these in a lovely slightly variegated brown. I love the fit and the look of them!

  9. What??? No picot edge? I love your picot. But I think I might love your red cabled luscious socks! Egads!! Simply stunning.
