    My March socks thru the heel. This is the same yarn I used for my sweater. Color in the photo isn't totally accurate. It's actually quite green but this yarn is tricky to photograph.

    I finished them. I used a Celtic knot instead of a shamrock. I found the chart on the knitting fool website. I'll try to put a link...

      And for the theme ... I love Celtic knots and this one for my stitch count better than anything else I could find but am I the only one who sees dollar signs? Lol

        I see the Celtic Knot absolutely and it is very pretty! If I really try to see more, I see the letter 'S' than a dollar sign but I get what you're saying.

        I see the 's' too. I was actually thinking of modifying it a bit and making something for my grandson, Sawyer.

      Decided to make shorties of the same yarn. First sock finished.

        Second pair finished. Basic shorties. This finished of the 2 balls of yarn I used for the previous pair nearly exactly except I had to bind off with my last ball of this yarn.

          KnitsWithHorses do you have a Michael's? I've bought some there and it's sitting in my stash. I need to make a couple of pairs of shorties with it but I'm not in sock mode right now.

          FreedomLover I use Michael's Woolike a LOT but I haven't seen anything in self-striping. My local Michael's has a pretty limited yarn selection though.

          Submission for theme: Irish.

          The pattern is Rye Light by Tin Can Knits. The designers of TinCanKnits went to Ireland in 2013 per their blog, so that is the connection to Irish

ID:	93028 Third pair done thru the heels. I hadn't planned on a third pair but all I had when I bugged out for two days was random sock yarn remnants and size 1 dpn needles so... I need summer socks anyway. Now I need to get to making Harmoni some so look for lots of blues next month.

            Finished pair. I kind of experimented with different techniques to avoid color jog on this pair. The jury is still out. Still going to try a couple other techniques before I decide.

              And one more for the color green. I've finally used up all of the Cascade Heritage i had which I'm kinda sad about. I really like it. But I have LOTS of great sock yarn so I can't really justify buying any right now. But I do recommend it!
