I finished up March's socks over the weekend. They turned out really nice and the yarn was a dream to knit with. The pattern, Kai-Mei by Cookie A, was easy, fun, and fast too since the lace is only on the foot section. I was very intrigued by the way that the decreases and increases made the lace panel move across the foot, it kept things interesting and addictive. I would knit this pattern again for sure. The only thing I did wrong was that I knitted to 7 inches from the heel before starting the toe decreases and probably should have started them at 6 inches instead. They're a little bit big, but that's okay, I think it just makes them more comfy. I'm definitely not giving them away, I don't think I could part with them.

And just to add a little cuteness to your day:
My friend Nicky showed me this pattern yesterday and I thought it was so cute that I had to crochet it right away. The pattern is Easter Chick by Jennifer Bennett, and it's quick, easy, and well written, just the thing for a last-minute Easter or springtime gift. Since I made her for a friend who really likes purple, I thought the little bow was the perfect finishing touch.
Have a great day everyone!
