Finished Socks!

My socks for my sockpals are finished - yay!

spring prairie socks in their natural habitat

I'm so happy with the way these turned out - and I think my sockpal will really like them!

Just as a recap: Knitpicks sock memories in spring prairie, Cafe Curtains sock pattern

Now that these are finished, it's time for a new project: some lovely, light, summery cotton just arrived for an Orangina!

This is my first sock exchange (or knitting exchange of any kind), and so far it's been so much fun to watch everyone's progress and learn about so many interesting blogs, gorgeous yarns and fun patterns. Yay for sockapalooza 4!

For some reason, this picture reminds me of France. When I visited Paris, it was springtime and everything was so green and beautiful! All things French have been dominated my life lately - starting to plan for study abroad, the original soundtrack of Les Miserables (yes, in French - it's gorgeous!) and some simply fabulous cinema. Lately, I've watched Indochine, Chocolat (set in Cameroon - not the Johnny Depp/Juliette Binoche movie), and the just-released La Vie En Rose, a biopic of the ever-lovely Edith Piaf. The best part: Mlle. Piaf was a devoted tricoteuse - and there was a lot of knitting in the movie. Girl is totally my idol.
