    so pretty!

    Very nice yarn/ stitch combo.

    First sock.


    Finished pair. I was still in a scrappy, helical mood so I used up three more colors of leftovers. These are 6 ply so they knit up fast.


    My favorite color is any shade of pink. There are lots of different shades of pink in these. I used one solid pink and a self striping that has brown, peach, orange, hot pink and burgundy. I also had a tonal blue.


    That lace pattern looks very fresh overlaid on the Felici.

    The colors worked great together!

    These were April socks but I didn’t finish them until May. Not sure I’ll get another pair finished since my knitting time right now pretty much has to be devoted to my test knit. I fell behind on it so now I’m scrambling to get it done on time.


    I love these colors together.

    Woot! They look great!

    Finished these today, I have a couple more pair on needles, but lately I have a few bigger WIP’s I’m trying to get done.


    The toe on the right one makes me think of a sock monkey. My brain works in weird ways lately… I used to have a pattern for sock monkey socks… Need to find it!
    They came out very pretty.

    Nice use of 'leftovers."

    These are coming along fabulously.


    That was fast!

    I love that none of the helical socks look like they were made with leftover bits of yarn.

    These are so happy looking.
