A taste of spring

Like I really needed to have yet another project on the go. ;p But everything else is black/white/gray/charcoal or a dark version of a bright colour ... just looking at this yarn makes me smell spring, which is rather nice when the sky has currently gloomed over in preparation for snowing all weekend plus Monday. Plus these are gansey socks, which I know from experience knit up fast (heavier, DK-weight yarn, bigger needles) compared to my usual versions ... heck, I'm not even having to look at the pattern chart because I've made two pairs of these already and have it memorized ... only when I finish the third front diamond will I have to start paying attention as the heel/gusset shaping begins then.

Patterning shows up very nicely if you click on the photo a couple of times to blow it up to full size.
