2 for 2

Leafling

Leafling

Leafling

Pattern: Leafling by JC Briar

Yarn: Socks that Rock mediumweight, colorway Lucky

Needles: US 2, (2.75mm)

Size: small

Fit: Perfect!

Can't believe I've finished both of my Rockin' Sock Club socks so far this year (let's not talk about last year, okay). And just in time for our next shipment! Thank goodness for long plane rides. I really liked the construction of these socks (based on Cat Bordhi's new sock architectures) and they fit perfectly!! Yay!! Plus, they will always be my "lucky" socks because they arrived right in time for me to find out I'd be able to go to sock camp!!

Can you believe I only have one pair of socks on the needles?! I was stressing a bit with three on the needles...phew! Two is the max for me I think, if I can help it!

Happy Knitting!

Nice socks! Yeah 3 is my max WIP number. More than that and I get twitchy.

Disco said...

They are very pretty socks and what a great colour for you.

Now, about those WIPs.....
Whatever happened to that lovely pickle? Hmmm?

Very pretty! And indeed - just in time!

Stacey said...

ooo, I like that pattern a lot!

I have 3 pairs of socks on the needles as well...but in all honesty, I've only been working on one pair! So I think I need to keep it down to no more than 2 as well!

Very nice! I love the new color. I only am working on two projects right now and one of those is my carpool project. I think I need the third.

Your socks turned out beautifully!!

I don't know about SF, but PDX is having torrential down pours today...perfect sock wearing weather!!!

Wendy said...

Where are you going to sock camp? That sounds like fun.

hearthead said...

Super Cute! Great stripe match again too! You ROCK! Congrats! Love You!!!

Beverly said...

Those are so cool! I love the colors.

I have never had more than one pair of socks on the needles at one time. I just know that if I ever start another pair before a pair is finished, I'll never finish the first pair.

Nell said...

Very pretty! You're doing much better than me in the Rockin' Sock Club knitting.

Hey, we finished the same time. I just need to blog mine though.

It is nice to have a relatively quick knit.

tiennie said...

It turned out so very pretty! Great job!

Congrats on 2 for 2. What a wonderful pair of socks!

Marisol said...

Love Them! You go girl!

Lisa K. said...

I so can *not* relate. I always have to go looking through the WIP pile to find needles for new projects that I want to cast on!
Love the leaflings (haven't even started mine yet...)

I love that color - The teal and the pretty, pretty light blue in the sock. I have got to get some STR yarn one of these days!
