New Sock OTN!

Remember the Cherry Tree Hill Supersock yarn in Green Mountain Madness? I bought it after my aunt died this summer, with the plan of making Wendy's Feather & Fan pattern socks (which you can find here.) My aunt loved feather & fan patterns and enjoyed knitting socks. So in that she lived in the Green Mountains of Vermont, it just seem appropriate to make these socks in remembrance.

Now The Meezer finds endless fascination in my dpns, but she also seems to be interested in the incredible, velvety softness of the CTH yarn! And can you see how beautifully the blues match The Meezer's eyes? (I love this yarn...I love this yarn...I know, you can't tell, can you?!?)
Can someone tell me what my Mommie sees in these skinny pieces of wood that she doesn't see in my tearstrip? The Meezer...

Yup, Looks like The Meezer approves. I hope my aunt is smiling favorably down upon this project. I think she'd love knitting this yarn! Someday maybe I'll get up to Barton VT to visit...

That is indeed lovely sock yarn and a great start on a new sock.

Poor little Meezer has to wait on play time with her tearstrip. hehe

Have a wonderful weekend!

Your Green Mountain Madness reminds me strongly of the Jetstream colorway in Caron Rainbow Dreams - no wonder I thought it was beautiful in the skein. The sock looks GREAT!! {{HUGS}}

I admit to having a CTH preference. As I looked through my stash recently, I noticed there is a LOT of it I should be using!

Sallee, I just love this color combo! I may have to make the pattern myself, even though it is toe up...

The only pair of CTH socks I've knit were from that colorway! I was thinking of you and the Meezer yesterday - Chaos and May have been playing with a tearstrip from a Priority Mail box...

Your aunt had a very good way of "turning" thumbs on mittens and even did it with socks once or twice, although she absolutely hated knitting socks and literally did do it once or twice. Your cousin, who is in the position to know

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
