*************************************

56 St 56 Row Socks
Designer: Nancy McGlynn
Yarn:Regia *Crazy Color* – 2.25 skeins
Color: Green Multi #5264
Gauge: 7 sts/10rows over 1″
Needles: #3

Whoo HOO! These are some Cheerful lookin’ threads!

Soft too – after I washed them in some lightly soaped water, they bloomed and got very nice. I even threw them in the dryer because I wanted to wear them today.

It is still brisk – around 30 degrees this morning which is 30 degrees WARMER than last week at this time. The Weatherman said we had zero or below since January 26.

It helps me to block it out by looking at my feet now. Maybe I’ll sprout some daffodils between my toes ;p

{oooh Melanie – where’s yer twosie?}

    I can’t decide what I love more – those socks or that photo! Very sneaky on tiptoes, but they are such a sprightly green so I guess it just follows.

    You know, this is just the happiest darned picture. All weekend long, surrounded by ice and winter crud, I just had to keep checking back to see these socks. It just made me smile.
