Socks Socks and More Socks

I definitely have the sock knitting mojo going on.  Here is the latest finished pair.

Pattern -  Hedera (Knitty)
Yarn - Kitchen Sink Dyeworks
Colorway  -  Hopeless Romantic
Needles  -  2.5 mm DPNs

I had a hard time finding a pattern for the next pair of socks.  The yarn is so colorful that several patterns that I started just didn't work out.  After searching for a while I decided to try Sunrise Socks from Wendy Knits.   I think I found a perfect match!  The yarn is Yarn Pirate in the Sweet Pea colorway

DH and I enjoyed a relaxing long Memorial Day weekend but I am so glad that it is Friday.  Other than taking Cisco(for his weekly fluids) to Dr. Jimmy tomorrow I plan on maybe picking up an unfinished sweater (CeCe) from last year.  I am not making any promises though.

Oh, the Sunrise Socks are looking really cool - that IS the perfect pattern for that yarn.

Wow, that pattern matches the dye run in the yarn perfectly. Who'd a thunk it?

Why does Cisco need fluids? It's been forever since I've seen you, so I'm a little behind on stuff. :-)

Both socks are gorgeous! Love the colors in that last one.

Both pairs are gorgeous! I really like how your Hedera's match the orchids.

Beautiful socks, Wendy. The colors of your Sunrise Socks are working up so pretty.

Everything came together for these socks: yarn, pattern, photo backdrop :-). Good work!

Beautiful socks! I love the Hedera socks with the orchid. The Sunrise socks really did work out perfectly.

I am amazed at what you have achieved with both yarns. I know the perils of pooling, the disappointment of zig-zags. Well done!

Really like the socks. Finally have made time to read some of my Alabama knitting blogs. You have been real busy. The pile of kitties a few days below is just too cute.
