I think I've worked out why I feel compelled to knit some yellow socks. I saw these in the garden of the new house today. I love spring.
I bought this "sproingy" Posh Yarn Emily last Sunday (along with a few things for my UK Swap Pal).
It feels amazing and I can't wait to get started. Just have to choose a pattern. I'm thinking Uptown Boot Socks or maybe Conway
Any suggestions? I want something fairly easy to memorise so I can knit them on the train.
I won't have to wait too long to cast on, as my February "Socks from the Stash" are finished:
Pattern: Monkey from Knitty, but with knit instead of purl stitches.
Yarn: Yarn Yard Sock Yarn in Peppermint Pink, about 60g.
Needles: 2.5mm circulars and dpns
Started: 30th January
Finished: 21st Feburary
Comments: Brilliant pattern, really fast doing the no-purl version. Love them!
I've done the random number generator and the socks for March need to be knit with this:
Tonight I'll be trying to finish Owen's birthday Jumper only about 1/4 of a sleeve to go.
