Elfine's Froggies

I loved this sock pattern. Really. Loved it. And the colorway? Well, some of you who saw the socks in progress made some comments about how bright they were, but that's alright. I still love this colorway for this sock, and I think that that is what matters the most (especially since I'm the one who will be wearing them).

Pattern: Elfine's Socks by Anna Bell at My Fashionable Life

Yarn: Sophie's Toes by Emily Parson in "Froggy" colorway, one skein

Needles: One 40" US 1 1/2 Addi Turbo Lace needle

Mods: Provisional crochet cast-on with short-row toes

This pattern is so lovely - especially for Spring. The yarn color feels like it was made to go with the pattern. This is what real spring colors look like, people! ;)

In case anyone (else) is getting bored with socks, I do have something non-pedial on the needles. Though it's not that exciting to most of you, this is my first lace shawl. Of course, I have started one before, but I have a strong feeling that this one will actually become something larger than a doll-sized lace thingy.

Well, I think that I've tortured enough of you for now. I won't come back until I have something interesting to say. Or at least until I've gotten desperately sad and lonely missing your company. Let's see how long that lasts!
