Disclaimer: If you went to Arizona and New Mexico with me over the summer, don't scroll down.

I just finished these, basic socks in Plymouth Sockotta. I love new socks, and they're so nice and bright for the springtime!

Now, of course, I have to pick out which kind of socks I'm going to make next! Check out this next photo:

Time to vote for your favorite, or at least which will be next....
2. Spunky Eclectic
3. CTH Potluck
4. Brown Sheep Wildfoote (for Pomatomus)
5. Claudia Hand Paint
6. Lorna's Laces

Your choice? I'm thinking the Claudia might be next, or the Koigu. And there's Bayerische socks to work on, too, but I need knitting therapy over knitting I have to concentrate on at this point.

I also finished the very first simple lace project out of Victorian Lace Today, which will become a gift. This is made with Knit Picks laceweight, and I'm really pleased with the way it came out after blocking (although the pooling isn't the best).

It stretched from 37" x 11" to 56" x 17" -- almost half again as big. And it's actually warm to wear, even though it's mostly holes. Ah, the magic of wool.

Looking forward to giving this one away! It almost floats through the air.

Next up: more lace? Finishing sweaters? Basic socks? ...or just writing my research paper? It is almost time to bring out the scooter, so then I can be a little more self-sufficient. Can't wait for spring!

I love that you knit the wrap in such bright colors! It's brilliant.

If you're taking votes, I'd go with the CTH... the colors are so spring-like! Hope to see you soon :)

Your wrap turned out beautifully, V. Lucky the recipient who gets to wear such a pretty wrap!

I second the vote for CTH socks.

I love that wrap. It looks like it's on fire with the color!

Love the socks, too! Simple socks are the best.

I also vote for #3- spring fever, perhaps? You've given me sock yarn envy. Dove is right, that wrap IS on fire! Although wouldn't that be horrible if it actually happened - knitting on fire! What a tragedy!
