Yesterday evening I finished up the pair of socks I knit up out of KnitPicks Stroll Fingering Yarn in Dogwood Heather. This yarn was one of my February sale yarns, that I am getting around to knitting up.
They are very pink. I guess it is supposed to be similar to the color of the pink dogwood blossoms in the spring. At least where I come from, the pink dogwoods we have here tend to be a bit darker when they blossom. Though this color is definitely spring-y in color, which is fitting for this time of year since we are in early spring and the trees are starting to blossom.
I have been working on these socks for a good couple of weeks. I started them the week leading up to the ladies retreat I went on and had gotten to the foot, past the gusset of the first sock before I left, and finished that sock after I came home. I struggled with wanting to work on these socks, as pink is no longer my favorite color. I bought the pink yarn because it was on sale and I like having options. There may be a day where the pink socks will go with my outfit (not that I really care).
With the lighter colors, I worry about wearing them hiking, as they are apt to get dusty and dirty, and start looking dinghy. That, and I also prefer the neutral tones, the jewel tones and grey.
