Finished :: Egg Hunt Socks

I’m a work-in-progress kind of gal. I’m always off to a fast start and if that’s all it takes to get a project done — a quick sprint — then I’m right there with the best of them, but if it’s more of a slow and steady kind of endeavor, well, watch out. You may be in for a wait. Just ask my Dad, whose long-awaited-from-two-years-ago knitted Christmas vest is almost, almost done! — it really is, Dad!

So it’s with great pleasure that I show off my first pair of hand-knit socks for grownups, well, for me. Here they are — Egg Hunt Socks!

I’m delighted to have finished them just in time for Easter. The self-striping yarn comes from Yarn Chef’s wonderful Etsy shop, in colorway Egg Hunt. The pattern is a free one, called Vivace Socks. Knitting with this yarn was lovely. I started this back in August, and would knit sitting on my in-laws porch in Montreal, sometimes dropping my tiny little pink needles through the boards in the porch, and then it was something of a parlor game to see who could rescue them. They always did get rescued, thanks to my father-in-law’s ingenuity. But as much as I enjoy the process of creation, here’s to finishing things! Hurray!

Now on to your vest, Dad!

  1. hey Heather, those gorgeous eggs by your equally fetching socks look like the ones you made with Kelly a la Ukranian style, right? We made some Swedish Easter tree/branch crafts today at the SMAC . . . lots of feathers and bits and bobs. I think you would have liked it. Happy Birthday, by the way. Amd go and tell your mother and father how happy I am they had you.
