My May SAM 3 KAL socks are complete and these are also socks for my mother for Mothers Day. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize until towards the end that a more appropriate pair should’ve been knit in spring colors, but since these are complete and there’s no time to knit another pair, they will have to do.
Pattern: Snake River Socks
Pattern Source: PersistentIllusion.com
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Green Mountain Madness
Needles: (2) KnitPicks Circular size 1 US
Notes: This is my first time knitting with Cherry Tree Hill yarn and let me just tell you it will definitely not be my last. Although the colorway isn’t one of my favorites, I must confess that the yarn was heavenly sliding through my hands to the needles. So far, this pattern has been one of my favorites not only because it was written toe-up for two circular needles, but because it was so simple to follow. These socks also fit my feet probably better than any I’ve ever knit. I suppose if they don’t fit mom, she could send them back to me. I’ll definitely keep this pattern in my sock binder to knit again in the future, but I’ll probably add the yarn overs as in the inspired River Rapid Socks just for something new.
Those silly dogs of mine kept running through all my photos, so I thought I’d include one to show you. Although the photo of the socks isn’t the best (and you have to deal with my hairy white legs), I just though it was fun to include a photo of what it’s like to be out on my backyard patio.
Also, remember those stitch markers I’ve been bugging all of you about? Well Ana opened her new online store, so please go take a look around. I can’t believe her low low prices!
