FO ! Spring socks !

*just in time for the time change*

Spring Socks
Colinette Cadenza sock yarn
Size 2 needles
Pattern: my own version of Knitty's Universal Toe-up Sock pattern
Firsts: First pair of socks made with sock weight yarn, smallest needles I've ever used, first toe-up sock.

Likes: I liked working with the small yarn and needles more than expected. I like the lace pattern, even though it doesn't really work with the variegated colors.
These babies are warm, too. I wish I had been able to get them done back when we had sub-freezing temperatures. I like that the are seamless. I have a really big thing with seams in my socks. Short rows aren't nearly as scary as I once thought.

Dislikes: They are a little too big and I don't know how to do a stretchy bind off so they are hard to put on. It also bothers me that one is speckled with color and the other is only splashed. I know that is the risk you run with hand painted yarn, but still.

All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'm sure they're see some wear next winter.

I like small gauge socks too - even though they take longer. I just think the fabric it creates is nicer.

they look really good!
