Farewell March

Just a quickie post to say goodbye to the pink and red month and welcome in the orange month. Here's what I finished for Pink/Red March:
May I present my first ever completed pair of socks! I learned a few things while making these, like kitchener stitch is not as easy as it looks, and a three-needle bind off looks better from the inside. Pattern: Fiber Trends Railroad Rib Socks; Yarn: hand-dyed from Dani; Needles: US size 2. I'm so excited about socks now! I might do Jaywalkers as my next attempt, using Knitpicks dye-your-own in my own colorway. Or I need to find a good pattern to make my husband's socks (size 13-better be an interesting pattern). Tomorrow is Flash Your Stash day (I've got a lot of photography to do) and the first day of sign ups for SecretPal8 . It's also the very first day of Orange month and I've already got one project in the works! Stay tuned to see what's next in my knitty world.
