Almost done with my Mont Royal socks! I finished the first sock and have turned the heel on the second, so now I'm in the home stretch! If you haven't been following my progress on these socks, I was lucky enough to test knit this fabulous pattern for Brandy over at Stitched up in Toronto. I can't say enough good things about this pattern--it's toe up (fantastic if you hate kitchener-ing the toe), has a fun and intuitive leafy lace pattern, and the instructions for the short-row heel are impeccable for first-timers like me! I've been thinking of these as my "happy" socks, as I've always wanted a pair of happy yellow socks in my sock drawer! And to add to the happiness today, I have a giveaway! One lucky person will win a copy of this pattern from Brandy! To enter, post a comment telling me what color you'd make these socks in if you win! (and send me an email at snapdragoncrafts AT yahoo.com so I can send you the pattern if you win!) With any luck, I'll be finished with these by the end of the week!
Today I'm linking up with Tammy's Stitch-Along Wednesday, Ginny for Yarn Along, and Nicole for Keep Calm Craft On.
