i'm a knitting-whore. (gosh, i sure hope that word does not bring spammers onto my blog!)

but, i am. THAT.

i have finished my lace socks, my pretty green lace socks, that i COULD wait until wednesday to post (st. patrick's day), but no .... they're done now and i am posting now.

so, here's the socks!

march madness

and i love them :)

first of all, green IS my favorite color. plus, i'm very pleased that i knitted a design from a book i already own. it's nice to knit from stash .....

and nevermind that i very recently ordered two hanks of yarn from evermore studios ... the yarn has been received (at my parent's home) ... but from what i hear, i made some lovely choices :)

but, about the socks above ... they were an interesting knit. the pattern is from a japanese lace source. so, there's patterning on every round (for about 1/2 the chart).

regardless, i could not knit these w/o the chart.

i will be wearing these on wednesday ... or maybe another pair of my green socks ....

apparently, i own A LOT of socks!

never enough

ps. each drawer is two rows deep !

Oh my, you have awesome sock draver! And the new ones are just beautiful! I really should knit more socks. I love wearing handknit socks, but i feel like they are always in the laundry basket. I guess you don't have that problem!

I love those lacy socks and your amazingly colorful sock drawers too!
I'm really glad I found your blog :)
You're inspiring me to get off my butt in the knit/crochet department.
Cheers lovely!
