for butter (k) in yartini 4-8-15-16-23-42
started: march 7, 2007
finished: march 17, 2007

they are done! hooray!!! i can’t say enough about the yarntini yarn. yummy. so yummy. anyhoo, butter (k) said that he loved them and immediately put them on. (well of course he needed green socks for st. patrick’s day!). here’s another look at them. (our beloved daughter was the stylist for this shot)

kiss me i’m irish!

instead of opting to finish the second sock to this or this…i pulled out MORE green yarn.

lime green... get out your sunglasses.

i’ve been itching to use this yarn for awhile. i love the super bright color…it’s so happy and spring-like! i’ve also been hankering to use a solid sock yarn with a cable pattern. most variegated yarns obscure all the hard work one puts into cables, don’t you agree? with yarn in hand i picked out this pattern:

the pattern describes the sock as “a fluid, allover cable pattern…suitable for casual or dressy use. a modern classic.” i’ll add “that screams for attention with it’s vivid texture/color combination”. take a look:

started: march 17, 2007
needles: 4 – #2 latern moon ebony dpns
notes: 72 stitches cast on, 2″ cuff, cuts yarn at heel?!?

it’s a somewhat enjoyable pattern. things i would alter…i would knit it with 5 needles instead of four; there is too much tension. unfortunately. the boogie man stole my fifth needle…oh, and the pattern has you cutting off the yarn when you start the heel flap, wtf?!? weird. otherwise, i can’t wait to see how this one turns out.

I love the greens! 🙂

I’ve recently finished some garter-rib socks for hubby, but he chose a very dark grey yarn. My next socks will definitely be more colourful.
