I spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening plus another couple of hours this morning trying to find the right combination of yarn and needles to make my Celebrate Spring socks. I love this pattern. It's easy to knit and looks lovely. I've just been having trouble finding the right yarn/needles for it to work. I wish I'd taken photos of all my failed efforts so you could see the problems--a variegated yarn which made it too fussy; a springy yarn which hid the lace pattern; a yarn that was too thick and obscured the lace section entirely.

Now I'm using a yarn from WoolCandy on Etsy in the colorway Candy Floss, size 2 needles, and I've reduced the stitches from 70 to 50. This is looking good! I'm going to knit a bit more and take a photo once there's enough light.



  1. This truly is a lovely pattern, I don't think I have seen it before. Is it in a book? You made a pretty yarn choice.

  2. No, it's a free pattern available online. I made "Celebrate Spring" in my post a hyper-link. Click on it and it'll bring you straight to the pattern!
