First

Yesterday, January 29th, I finally got around to creating a Finished Objects set for the year in Flickr. That means it took me almost an entire month to have a finished object. Considering how profuse some knitters are, not to mention how I used to be, I've got to say... it bugged me a little bit. I kept thinking "Seriously? Here we are, almost February, and this is all I've got? One pair of socks?".

At least these aren't your run of the mill socks though...


Pattern: Aphrodite, by Jeannie Cartmel
Yarn: Springtree Road Emeline Sock (50% Merino, 50% Silk)
Colour: Chartreux
Needles: 2.5 mm
Technique: knit on 2 circulars
Cast on date: January 12, 2012
Cast off date: January 28, 2012

I knit these beauties as part of the Solid Socks monthly Mystery Sock KAL on Ravelry. I got a wee bit confused and thought I could partake of both the Mystery Sock AND the Color of the Month KAL (which was Black/White/Grey for January), but apparently I can't do that... No matter though. These socks are made of total frickin' awesome, in my humble opinion.


Oh yeah... that's the stuff right there. Just look at those stitches! Ooh baby...

*Ahem*

Next month's colour of the month is "Spring". In February. Since I doubt the group's organizers mean us to knit with dirty white, icy grey or dull brown (such is the colour of February in Montreal), I pulled the following candidate skeins out of the stash:

Anyone have any favourites?

Happy Knitting, Everyone!

I suppose, if I just finished a fiddly (beautiful) pair in blue, I'd go for a bright color next. I'm thinking the orange! But the green is so springy, and the yellow is so happy...! Nope. I'm no help.

Beautiful socks which look very complicated. I would choose either orange or that gorgeous green for spring!

orange and pale blue

Caroline said...

There's just no way I could choose. :)

I love your January socks. Beautiful!

gorgeous socks! that pile of colors is the best kind of vibrant. i'd try to use them all together in something, but i'm weird like that.

GORGEOUS!! omg, SO pretty. How does one ever want to wear pants with socks as gorgeous as those? Not that I'm suggesting you should walk around with no pants... haha just sayin' ;-)

The socks are beautiful!
I vote for the green. Green says "Spring!" to me.

Wow. Those socks are spectacular!!

Spring = Green, to me, so I'd choose that bright chartreuse-y skein.

Maryse said...

Gorgeous sock! My favorite for February would be the right uppermost skein. I'm not sure how this color would be called even in French. What will you choose?

Sinéad said...

Absolutely gorgeous socks, a perfect match of colour & pattern. Yum.
If I were picking a spring colour from your pile, I'd go with the yellow to remind me of spring daffodils.

Gorgeous socks!

Jennifer said...
