Happy Easter!

There's snow and sun and beautiful blue skies today! I've had a lovely long weekend so far. There's been visiting, cleaning, shopping and walking in the warm sun. I waited for the sun to take pictures of my Ruby Socks which were all finished last weekend.

Pattern: my own - little diamonds lace, with short row toe and heel and a picot hem (80 sts around)
Yarn: Schaefer Anne
Needles: 2mm

My photography cannot do them justice. The yarn is vibrant and lively, and the pattern is graceful. I'm very pleased with these socks.

The gauge is quite snug, so they were hard on my hands, especially towards the end, but they feel soft and smooth on my feet that it was worth it.


  1. Wow, gorgeous socks. That's an amazing colour ... just what you need in these hopefully last dregs of winter.

  2. Those are great socks. Love the pattern.

  3. You can really make socks from any pattern. Those are great.

  4. Beautiful socks. 80 stitch socks are some serious work I'm sure!

    Your red comes out a bright cheery cherry on my computer.

  5. Yay for pretty socks! Good job, Laurie
