I'm in love....

...with myself!

I've decided to make a little Valentine's gift for myself. Dee over at Tangled Up in Sticks and String put up a lovely free pattern the other day, and it was like she had been reading my mind. I've wanted pair of socks with eyelet hearts for a while. I have one that's toe-up, but I really can't be bothered to learn toe up at the moment... so I was going to design my own... but designing takes time... and this is pretty much exactly what I wanted!

I was up at Mom's for dinner tonight so I snagged a skein of Top Cat (because oddly enough... I don't have any pink or red sock yarn in my stash!)
Colour is Candy Girl.

I will probably start them this weekend - but I want to cast off my STR socks first... I've just got to the heel on the second one... so maybe a long night of knitting tomorrow and a little more on Friday and then I'll be knittin' up a little love...

You are so lucky to be able to shop at moms! :o) Very nice yarn for these socks. It's a lovely pattern too. :o)

They are going to look gorgeous in that colorway! I may have to get some of that new pink sock yarn we got in at the store and make a pair. I'm not really a pink person, but this new stuff caught my eye.

The yarn is gorgeous. I can't wait to see how the pattern looks in pink.

Happy knitting!!!

Candy Girl was supposed to be a baby sweater. Bah! I'm such a pushover! :)

It does remind me of cotton candy, I think that would be great Valentines socks to give to yourself.
