Start to Finish

I love finishing a project, especially when it has a special connection. The March Rockin Sock Club shipment was exactly that kind of project.

One of the patterns this month is by Irishgirlieknits, who I have the pleasure of calling a friend.

The name of this kit's yarn is My Wild Irishgirlie. I love this colorway!

Isn't it pretty all wound up too? Often club kits come in and I think "Oooh, that's pretty, I must do that next or soon". This one came in and it was "WOW! I must start this one right now!" And I did :-)

The pattern is great. It's interesting to knit, easy to memorize, and is visually attractive. Here is the cuff.

And the patterning continues onto the foot and toe. This is the first pair of socks I have made with a patterned toe. I wonder if I will notice it inside my shoes?

It didn't take me too long to complete the pair.

I'm looking forward to wearing them! Thanks for a great pattern Irishgirlieknits! I wish I was at camp with you and could show them to you in person.
