Bring on a FO!

Spring Forward Again

Still catching up on my blog posts from my Portland trip, but I thought a FO post was needed first! I finished my Spring Forward socks Monday! Love them in a shaded solid!

Spring Forward Again



Spring Forward Again

Summer of Socks pair #3

Pattern: Spring Forward

Yarn: Socks that Rock, mediumweight colorway Coral

Needles: US 1.5

Date Started: July 11, 2008

Date Finished: July 21, 2008

Modifications: Slightly larger needle size due to the mediumweight yarn. Also, decreased to 60 stitches when I got down to the foot.

Still loving this pattern, but I cast on a few different socks for my family trip to San Diego (we leave Friday!!).

Happy Packing!

LOVE the socks in the coral colorway! So did you and Nartian coordinate your postings?

Zonda said...

Those are gorgeous!! Gosh, I wish I could knit that fast! ;)

Oh, so pretty - it looks lovely in the natural light as well.

These are gorgeous! I love the color choice!

Disco said...

I've been wondering about which needles/pattern to use for my mediumweight. So, remind me what your foot size is, so I can compare your mods to my foot size.

The socks look really pretty :0)

Yay! So, so pretty! I love the Coral.

And I will attest they look great on the foot. Not quite Irishgirlie's foot, but another knitter at Purlescence that did try the first one on for size. It looked marvelous and not bulky at all!

Very pretty, I do like the color! I am starting to think I need to make my very own pair.

Gorgeous, as usual. You do a great job of matching yarn and pattern.

Nell said...

Oh no! That coral was NOT on my list. And now it leaped into my cart!

Those are GORgeous! You, Zonda, and Cristi are killin' me here. I'm getting more convinced these need to travel up higher in the queue!

Wendy said...

Beautifully done!

Wow! You are like lightning! I love them. The perfect color too.

Bridget said...

Lovely! Don't mean to pick nits (knits?), but you state you started and finished them in June; did you mean July?

IrishgirlieKnits said...

Great colour! I might add those socks to my list.

Oohhhh... those are lovely! Every time I see that pattern I feel an itch to add them to my queue. Not that I'd ever make it through my queue in my lifetime. ;-)
