Greeny Dwarfs!

Well I knew I wouldn't get my Pink Forwards done in time for my July socks for SAM6, and decided I also needed a fingering weight sock knitting break as well.

Presenting.... Greeny Dwarfs!

Red Dwarf Socks from Cristi or here
Wick Yarn in Avocado
US 4 circular, ML
Greeny Dwarfs
My first pair were in a variegated yarn and just didn't do the pattern justice! I've been wanting to knit them again with a solid, and the timing was perfect. (hehe..um..well had the yarn since the first pair were done)

Please ignore my pasty white legs...not much sun for me lately! But hey...you're supposed to be looking at the finely detailed Fish tail lace pattern here!!

Greeny is attracted to the plants...see, still alive and thriving. You should see the buds on this plant (more on that tomorrow!)

See, Greeny just loves hanging with Pinky!

Close ups This time I used a regular short row heel, picking up the wraps on the knit (public) side for all rows. Soooo much easier than a YO srh!

This is the only evening picture left, I kinda liked. The day I went to photo shoot these, there was a thunderstorm going on while it was light and my indoor shoot..well, told you that already!

It's a great pattern, which should tell you since I knit it more than once! Also much quicker this time round too!
all that is left Aside from about a yard that didn't make it into the picture, this is all that is left. Just enough for repairs.

Those are gorgeous!! Sometimes we just need the sportweight! I've been meaning to knit these in some STR like Trillian's....hmmm..must get on that!

Great job!!

What pretty socks! If my sock mojo wasn't hiding out this year, I'd probably make a pair :-)

They look very comfy! But I just read a post about artichokes and I think those are more artichoke colored!

So pretty! Eeks about the the yarn left over! Of course it's always great to use up all of a yarn.
