After the long and arduous winter we've had, it's nice to have things warming up and melting, in the last few days. I've been able to leave the house without a jacket for the first time in six months or so, and I'm looking forward to seeing some colour popping out of the ground.
I made some colour of my own with these self-striped socks from the now-defunct Knit Picks Felici yarn. I'm super sad to see this yarn go, since I always loved the base yarn and the simplicity of knitting the self-striping colours. I haven't got much left, but I'm hoping they'll come up with something else by the time I run out.
This particular colourway was called Peachy, and I think it's pretty perfect for spring.
I did the usual, nothing new here: toe up, 68 stitch circumference, afterthought heel. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I do love how the stripes match but are offset from one another.
