Green With Envy

I just couldn't resist! As soon as I finished up my sockpal socks on Monday night, I cast on for these...





Yep, its my Ireland socks! They are a bit overhaul with the whole green theme, but hey I'm excited and I love how they are turning out! 10 little stripes of green goodness, 1 short row heel and voila.. I am already on the foot!

I'm loving that green! I can't believe you knit all that in 1 evening. I'm 'green' with envy. :-)

I love the thin stripes. Will you offer this to us? I'd love it in shades of pink and another in shades of melon.

OMG, it's to die for. I don't know which I lust for more, this or Black Olive Stripe.

I love the colors!!! I am so envious that you were able to knit that much in one evening. Just thinking abuot doing that much knitting is making my writst hurt. But you will have Ireland socks to wear while you are in Ireland. And I also am hoping that you will be offering up this colorway when you get back from your trip.

Gorgeous - I would love to see some other yarns like that, striped but all in one color family - orange or purple or blue would be fun.

Hi from Austria! I can't believe how cool these socks are, probably the most gorgeous shades of green that I've ever seen - yep, they sure deserve their name! And you're definitely a speed knitter, you've been knitting them up so fast! Great, great work!

Your socks are SO lovely! I am very much enamoured of socks and sock knitters at the moment and yours are just lovely. These green ones are the most wonderful colour and your sockapalooza socks are really cool! You are a defenite inspiration to a sock newbie like me!

I love the green theme!

It's unbelievable how many little stripes of different greens you managed to dye! I just signed for the Dye-O-Rama and this is surely an inspiration. (Though I know that it takes a lot of experience for such results, right?)
These colours are gorgeous. Enjoy the knitting!
