Awhile back I purchased a Cherry Tree Hill Supersock mill end from the ebay vendor emtnestr. It is a beautiful range of pink to red to magenta, perfect for Valentine’s Day socks.
Since one of the Socktopia themes is “Forever in my Heart” I decided to do socks with lace hearts. I spent some time yesterday swatching, and I think I’ve figured out a cute little pattern. Does this look like a heart to you?
I probably un-vented it, but I figured it out myself, which is gratifying. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be finished in time to wear them on the 14th.
Now, to be fair, I think that Valentine’s Day is rather silly as a holiday, and James and I don’t typically do much to celebrate. We both have winter birthdays, and it frankly seems like holiday overkill. That’s ok, though, I’ll take any excuse to knit and wear cute socks.
