What a Glorious Day

First, an FO! I finished my STR sock club socks for the first kit. :)
Lovelies on the sock blockers.

Needles: US 1 birch DPNs
Yarn: STR Monsoon, sock club yarn
Pattern: Inside Out, sock club pattern by Kaci
Mods: Well, I never switched needle sizes as is recommended as I didn't find any indication where to switch, so I just knit straight on through. Next time, I would use a smaller needle for the toe and foot, then switch for the heel and leg.

I needed some courage today as I was meeting with my committee for the first time to propose most of my plan of study. So I wore my socks, and they are definitely lucky.

I didn't have any problems with the plan of study I suggested. I received valuable information from my committee and I feel as though great progress has been made.

But, beyond that, I'm excited because of these. Spring is definitely on it's way.

Those are some seriously awesome socks!

Still just snow here. Hopefully we'll be seeing signs of spring soon!

Sounds like I need to bust butt on mine. Especially if they are lucky - I need all that I can get right now.

Glad that things are looking up for you.

Ooooo! The socks are great AND lucky!

Even though I just live 30 minutes south of Kelly, I actually saw snowdrops today (around the snow). I love the first flowers of Spring!

I love the way your socks turned out. I'm getting some pooling, but I still love the way they look.
