Well, I realized last night that I finished a pair of socks a few weeks ago, and completely forgot to show you! So today is the day.
You may remember at some point I showed you the wip version, with the happy combo of pattern and yarn.
They are now finished and safely tucked away in my Box o' Socks.
Project: Milo and Molly Socks
Pattern: Zigzagular Socks (free on Ravelry!)
Yarn: Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock, in the colorway Molly (sadly discontinued)
Needles: Size 1US
Notes: These may be my favorite pair that I have knit so far this year, and one of my all-time faves! I have had this yarn in my stash for a long time, and decided that it just needed to be a pair of socks this March. I came across this pattern, which I had saved into my Ravelry library a while back, and since it was particularly created for variegated yarn, I thought it might be a good match - and it was. This pair was just plain enjoyable to knit in every way. The yarn is wonderful, the pattern is well-written and once you get through the first repeat, it's pretty memorable and doesn't require intense concentration. I highly recommend it.
Here's another shot of the socks, where the color is closer to what you would see in person.
Happy weekend! I hope whatever you have planned works out. Our weekend is probably going to be quiet, though I am hoping to make it to Loop tomorrow for Local Yarn Store Day. Especially now that Rosie's has closed, I want do my part to make sure that my two other local stores, Loop and Hidden River Yarns, stay in business. Since Loop is about 1 1/2 blocks from my house, I'll probably head over there. (Laziness usually wins out, especially on weekends!)
