Bring On The Green

The Ireland socks are finished and I am wearing them today on our trip across the Atlantic! So. Excited. I love how they came out.. so green, so stripey, so comfy.




Project specs:
Pattern: Just a basic sock with a short row heel and toe. I used Alison's yo tutorial over at the Blue Blog.
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns in Ireland
Measurements: Made to fit a women's US9. I knit these on an Inox US2 (which is really like a US1.5) and did the magic loop method.
Started: May 1, 2006
Finished: May 14, 2006
Other Details: I grafted the toe on the bottom and cast on 68 instead of my 64. Didn't need to do that, but they still fit fine!

Oh, and here is my backpack I'll be taking on the trip. Look at all the green yarn! There is some Sundara Yarn in Grasshopper as well as some more Sunshine Yarns in the Shamrock colorway. I am continuing the green overload for the next two weeks :)



See you all when I get back!!!

I love your Ireland socks. I used Alison's pattern to knit my first ever pair of socks and I wouldn't do them any other way!
