Pansie Pansy

I love the real ones, but sadly haven't planted any this year yet. These imposters socks will have to do for now!

Pansie Pansy
Little Pansy Socks pattern by Karen, my Sock a month KAL's partner in crime :)
Zen Yarn Garden Superwash DK Yarn
Pansies Colorway
US 4 Addi Circ, Magic Looped
Mods, other thank ML'ing I did add 3 rows of plain knitting before I started the heel flap and left 10 stitches to K-stitch the toes. A nice relaxing pair to knit.

In the first knit up of this yarn, it was supposed to be another pair, but I didn't like the pooling.. However, the yarn is so soft and easy to knit with, and best of all it's DK :)
Partridge heel
Eye of Partridge Heel and see, not too bad in the pooling, hardly any.

I'd love to have Pansy's in these colors too.
Toe Pick!
Toe Pic for you Cristi

I'm also happy as this is another WIP(well they started out as another pair of socks!) from May of 08 finished! (still um...er..a few more to go, but I'm getting there.)
See..they are planted ;)
Wait, see, I'm planting these!!! (hehe, um, not!!)

I love them! They would probably be great for my yard. The deer eat all my other flowers. Knitting flowers may be the solution.

Toe pic? How did you know I watched all three of the "Cutting Edge" movies recently? ;)

Carol said...

Oooh pretty. Maybe I should knit myself a coupleof ankle socks. Tehy work well at work in the a/c. Damn, now my queue got longer.....

Ooooohhhh, you used my "so-called-pattern" - although it really isn't a pattern. Just a list of my stitch counts and such. LOL

They are so gorgeous. That yarn is so fabulous, it would make any pattern look good!
