Please do not adjust the colour on your screen

The colour you are seeing is indeed this bright!

Psychedelic Psyclone Psocks
Pattern: none really, just the Plain Vanilla Socks that is embedded in me
Yarn: Gypsy Girl Creations, colourway "Angela"
Needles: 2.75 Harmony wooden dpns
Time in: Started on April 3, finished April 9
Again? OH YEAH! This yarn is really soft and great to work with (it has a bit of extra twist to it that you don't see in a lot of yarns -- very smooshy and sproingy!). Even though I have had people tell me they'd never knit anything with this colourway, I think it is fun, cheery, and feels so nice in the hands -- I have enough left to make either kids socks, fingerless mitts for me, or a pair of anklets -- and can't wait until I knit with this again!

These are going to be worn to Easter Brunch and the Easter Eggs Hunt on Sunday at my in laws (my 2 nieces and one nephew will be there -- and I hope my sister and her hubby bring their kids home too for an Easter Egg Hunt at my Mom's!). My nieces (12 and 6 ) are going to LOVE these socks!

I think you should make anklets or fingerless mitts for yourself out of the leftovers. :)

Have fun on the egg hunts. We'll be doing that tomorrow morning as well. By the sounds of the weather it will be inside, though. I don't remember the last time the weather co-operated for an outdoor hunt.

I had an idea what was coming so I got out my sunglasses to read this post!!

Have a great Easter!

Thanks for the pet advice, especially paying before the procedure. Hopefully Kora still has more time on this earth than predicted.
