It's time for Summer of Socks! I look forward to this every year and usually I'm chomping at the bit, ready to go on Memorial Day. In the past though, the SOS has followed the calendar and not started until June 21st. This year though, the wonderful moderators decided to adjust the KAL to run from Memorial Day until Labor Day. I love that because to me, these two holidays mark the beginning and end of summer. It's a No Pressure year too, which I love. Knit anything you want, including WiP's, and it counts! Perfect!
So I'm continuing on my quest to keep up with the 2 sock clubs I joined this year. I recently finished Petrosinella which was the Rockin Sock Club March shipment. This pattern was a little hard on my hands and I had to take regular breaks from it, but it was worth plugging along and finishing them.
I also finished one of the patterns from the April Cookie A club. This pattern is Tulip Socks. I substituted Hazel Knits Artisan sock yarn in the color Pink Ribbon for these. The club yarn is a gorgeous lavender from Dream in Color Everlasting sock, but I think that tulips and pink just go together. I'm going to use the lavender yarn for the other club pattern.
Happy Summer of Socks!
