Ladybug Socks

Ladybug Socks

Pattern: The basic sock pattern, which I have now committed to memory.

Needles: US 3

Yarn: Opal Rainforest sock yarn in the Ladybug colorway.

Time: I totally lost track as I've been knitting this here, there, and everywhere.

Other: I love these socks. This yarn has been in my stash since last fall, so it's good to finally use it up. I hope I feel the same about stash yarn after many more projects, since I'm planning to use a lot of it up this year.

About the Ladybug color. This yarn doesn't really make me think of ladybugs. It does make the think of watermelon though. Sweet red watermelon with black and white seeds buried inside. Mmmmmmmm. Watermelon makes me think of summer, the sun, and the fact that I can't wait for both summer and the sun to return.
