Spring Twists in Easter Egg Dye done.


Pattern: Spring Twists by Jeanie Townsend
Yarn: Bare Essential by KnitPicks, dyed by kids with easter egg dyes
Needles: US0 on foot and US1.5 on leg
Construction: Two at once, one circ, toe up
These socks are already well loved. Bound off this morning, on the feet and off to school already.
I did a twisted stitch for the knits. This was a tedious knit, not fast, so be prepared to take your time making them. The twists snug the pattern up enough that the leg is snuggly even though I went up a needle size.

Electric! Those are some bright socks. I like the pattern is nice though.

WOW - you've been busy! Cool Easter egg socks and I really like the pink ones! Adorable little sampler sweater too.
I'm back to driving so....maybe we can connect??
My schedule is a little more complicated since adding physical therapy to the mix, but we should be able to come up with a morning coffee date!
