FO-Chain Melody Socks

I finished these up Sunday night. I used my new Kitchener Stitch dog tags to finish up the toes and they came out perfect. Which I purchased at The Loopy Ewe. This also the first time using my sock blocker to show off my socks. Just figured out that this is my third pair for this year. When I posted I'm Loopy I did not include the picture of my purchase. (I know I did, I sure but?) So for your viewing pleasure.

I woke up yesterday morning tired and by the time I got home from work I was a walking zombie. I went through some magazines and was asleep at 8:00. I did wind up my Rocky Road yarn. I was going to knit up the Clapotis but after receiving this yarn I am going to knit another pair of socks. These will be done 1 at a time with 40" addi as I am not going to take the time to split it up to knit two at a time.

Yarn: Knits Picks Gloss; Colorway: Woodland Sage; needle 40" #1 addi; Pattern: Nicole Hindes Chain Melody and on Ravelry

Great socks--I love the color and the pattern. Thanks for the pictures of life blooming! I'm starting to wonder if I remember what that looks like!

Great socks!
I wish I had pretty trees like that to look out to, all we have are darn pine trees! Well, at least I haven't had to buy mulch for my flower beds since we moved here. :)

Again, beautiful blossoms! The neighborhood where my son and DIL live in Richmond - all the streets are lined with Bradford pears. So pretty in the Spring. Great sock and love the Rocky Road yarn! You could dye up a whole mess of colorways named after ice cream! Cool!

I love the cherry blossoms! I wish I had a cherry tree! When I was little my great grandmother had aone in her yard in Chicago. I have such fond memories of that tree! Not to mention the pies she made! I also adore the socks. The color and pattern are perfect!
