When Irish Eyes are Smiling...

Travelling socks...I didn't get as much time as I thought to work on these socks while in Ireland. I did get as far as the cuffs done, and the rest of them will be finished in the cornfields.

The socks certainly had an interesting adventure, and will be filled with many memories of Ireland.

Mission Accomplished!

They look nice with jeans don't they? I didn't want to take these off after I slipped them on my feet for this photo. The yarn is so soft and I plan to wear these for pub dancing in Ireland. If that doesn't work out, perhaps a little intoxicated belly dancing. I want these socks to come home with stories to tell!

Yarn: Kaleidoscope by the Mayor of Cabin Cove
Start date: January 29, 2007
Completion date: March 3, 2007
Pattern: Dublin Bay Socks
The pattern seems to be a perfect fit for my feet. There is just enough interest with the small stripe of the pattern that it isn't boring to knit. I used dpns to get things started then switched to two socks on one circular needle. It just seems to confuse me less that way. I do the same thing with the heel, slide them off on the dpns, do the heel then put both socks back on the long circular needle. It's weird, I know but it seems to work for me. (If you have read any of my posts before, this can't possibly be the first indicator that I am weird.) :o)
