I've Been Seduced



I finished my March Socktopia Socks!!! Here are my "It Isn't Easy Being Green" socks. I used the Seduction Sock pattern from IK. Because I had only one skein of the Louet Gems sport weight yarn (thank you Monica) I wanted to make sure I had enough to finish a pair of socks. Monica advised me to knit them on size 3 needles and with 48 stitches. It worked out perfectly (thanks again Monica)!! I had enough but there wasn't much left over. They fit great (although the legs are about an inch shorter than I normally knit them, but that's ok). So, that is one seduction.


The second is....

Everyone knows that sock yarn doesn't count in yarn stash or purchases. I mean it's one maybe two skeins for a pair of socks. So, since it doesn't count, I acquired some more this week. Enough to make 4 pair of socks (ok maybe more, if I knit some baby or child size socks from the leftovers). Would you like to see? It's very pretty and oh so tempting.


At the top is Fleece Artist in Seashore. And the three Lorna's are from left to right: Child's Play, Vera, and Sand Ridge. I think I'm balancing out the "Martha and Frank" in me.
I think I will work on C.J.'s socks now and finish those up. I don't have much more to knit on the first one. And I have started a pair for my favorite sister for her May birthday (I will not be showing those off until they are gifted). And I still need to finish my Edelweiss socks. And Mandy would like some lime green socks. So, I better get busy! Have a great weekend!! More later!
