One of Fifty-Two

Added: Sockapalooza sign-ups are open! You've got about 48 hours to join! Let's go! (It's now 10:30am April 11.)

One of Fifty-Two for 52 Pair Plunge, aka April socks for SAM3.

2.25mm needles

Modified to 60sts (original pattern 72sts but way too big with this yarn).

Eye of Partridge Heel over 30sts, 18sts gusset pick up.

Work gusset decreases as usual down to 60sts total, worked toe to 20sts.

I stretched the side panel a bit to show the eyelets a little better. I am always ghostly white, so my leg shows through pretty good!

Natural light -- it's pretty accurate with the true color.

The snow is melting pretty fast. I figure it will be gone by the weekend. There's a lot of grass showing in places. Yesterday the boys went outside to play. The green and yellow things they are using to make snow cones and rectangles were mine. I got them when I was probably eight or so. Antiques!

Up next -- socks for the munchkins out of this Brooklyn Handspun bought a year or more ago in Thomas the Train colorway.

Happy knitting!

These are great, I love this pattern, and they look so comfy! You're so brave - SAM3 is enough of a challenge for me! :0)

What do you do with all those socks?! That pair are beautiful and I love the yarn for the new ones.
Good luck on your 52!

Wow! Look at those colors! I love the way Eye of the Partridge looks with these colors... and the eyelets. Gorgeous.

Love your Dublin Bay's! I have some Fleece Artist that I have set aside for a pair of these socks - I think the colourway would look great as Dublin Bay.

I've joined in the Sockapalooza this time around! I just hope I can make some great socks for my pal, and that I don't screw up on them! I'm so paranoid, LOL!

I stopped by the shop tnight -- Maary told me you have found a Bryspun needle source for me! and I spoke to K. re: Austerman colours (had mine on, and let her touch - told her they are Whiskey colour, and told her I like the Pink & Turquoise -- she said she'd look into getting them ordered soon!

Also - did you read YoYo's post today? Apparently the Yarn Pirate is going up on Sweet Sheep's shop tonight at 7 EST -- lots of nice colours.

If you want to call, I'm in until about 8 p.m., and if not, email me -- tom.heather@ns.sympatico.ca
