Spring Socks

In December I received a wonderful package from Tam. She sent me all sorts of chocolately goodies and a beautiful skein of sock yarn. I loved the yarn so much that I immediately wound it into a ball intending to cast on over the Christmas holidays. Christmas knitting being what it is, I didn't finish until January at which point I was tired of socks again and onto other projects. Then my first Rockin' Socks Club package arrived which got me back into the sock lovin' feeling except then I couldn't put down that project. However, as soon as I was done those socks (reminder to self: blog about finished socks), I immediately grabbed the yarn from Tam. 

I had no problem deciding what pattern to use. There is one sock pattern which is sweeping the blog world right now and I knew it would be perfect for my yarn (check out this beauty and this one).  I cast on last Friday and this sock has already seen some serious action. It got to sit in the sound booth and witness a radio interview at the CBC. It also came on Gen's birthday shopping trip and hung out in the change room of many a clothing store. 

But enough talking about the sock, do you want to see it?

This is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in a special edition colourway based on Renoir's Spring Bouquet. I absolutely love it! Tam, you did so good! The beautiful colours help me believe that spring is right around the corner.
