Do not adjust your screens! (Aka "Ooh La La" Sock Ta-dah!)

Pattern: Hermione's Everday Socks by Erica Lueder (various mods & more pics here)
I have absolutely loved knitting these socks as part of the AYLM Summery Sock KAL. The pattern is very easy to remember (I knit it toe-up and two-at-a-time,  but it's a standard cuff down pattern) which made it the perfect portable project for the last couple of weeks and it seems equally suited to plain or colourful yarn. This is the first time I've used such a bright pooling colours and the result is a really fun and comfy pair of socks that are likely to become favourites. I will definitely be making more. 

Now that the socks are finished I am seriously thinking about the next CftC knitalong which is scheduled for July until the end of August. I'm after a lightweight summer project which is portable and which offers flexibility for different skill levels and tastes. There are two options - a lightweight shawl or a(nother) pair of socks. As we did "Next Step Socks" last time, I would personally prefer the shawl option. We have started talking about patterns on the Ravelry group if you'd like to join in, or you can leave a comment below. 

Thank you for all the lovely comments on yesterday's post about changes to the blog. The development is now finished but there will still be a few tweaks here and there. I'm linking up with Tami today - please pay her a visit for lots more Finished Objects - and the final '2nd Year of Projects'  post is coming up on Sunday, which means it's time to think about the 3rd year. Will you be joining in?
