Very refreshing!

I've finished a pair of socks over the weekend. It's been a while since I've knit socks. Just didn't feel like it at all. Then I saw Wandering Cat Yarns Chroma Color in Cucumber, and the sock knitting spark was lit.

By now you all know how much I love green.
These had to be knit toe-up, to get all of the dark color at the toes. I'm using Fleegles toe-up sock recipe, and love it for the perfect fit.

Even Denny approved of them. He did the smell test.

I've also joined another Mystery KAL, which starts on June 1. It's TTL Mystery Shawl KAL 2012 by Kirsten Kapur. I felt like a little mystery in my life. I'll be using another of Wandering Cat Yarns for this.
Since it's going to be a gift, I'm using the recipients favorite color for it. It's lovely Lilac on Wandering Cat Yarns Continental Cat. I've wound it into a cake, all ready to go.

oooo those socks are beautiful, I love the coloring and how there is a gradient from darker green to white. Everyone keeps talking about the mystery shawl KAL, I'm getting very tempted to join in but I'm already in two other KALs and three swaps! Ah maybeee just maybe... good luck on your projects! :]

I love those socks, especially the fact that the yarn was dark green at one end.

I love the green yarn! I've been hooked on socks lately. Maybe you're now back in the sock zone! Welcome back! LOL

That yarn for the socks is pretty awesome. I like the simplicity of the sock pattern too.
