In March I won a small victories giveaway that Suzanne had. She sent me a lovely skein of yarn complete with a pattern for a pair of socks.
I was so excited because if you remember I haven't ever knit up proper socks. So I referred to the pattern on the back of the yarn wrapper and cast on.I had enough yarn to make myself a pair and my daughter a pair as well. We now have matching spring socks. She is in love with the color combo as it is "rainbow" and that is her "very most favorite color". How very fortunate that Suzanne sent us that color :). I can't believe that I have never knit up socks before. I bypassed the second sock syndrome I've heard so much about by casting on for one sock at a time while also working on my daughters dress and her Easter sweater (with pictures coming shortly). I think having another large project going at the same time helped me not get to bored with either one.
Sorry the pictures aren't the best but I had a hard enough time convincing here that running shots weren't really the best way to showcase the socks, so I had to snap quickly so that she could show me how fast these socks made her run....wish I could bottle up that energy.
