My mom's Socks! They are Spring Forward from Knitty in Colinette Jitterbug in Monet. It was an extremely easy pattern repeat! I have found that I like when socks have a 12-16 row pattern repeat because it seems to go so much faster! I think it's just that I don't put them down until I've finished a whole repeat!

I've been eyeing that Monet colorway for some time now. This seals the deal. I MUST have some!
