A Sock of Seagulls

"I ran, I ran so far away...." No, not a Flock of Seagulls--a Sock of Seagulls! This was suggested to me, I believe, by the lovely Eilidh on the now defunct Save Gaelic forum. (How I miss that forum--so many wonderful, helpful Gaelic speakers now out of reach! Boohoo!)

Anyway, back to the socks. When I found the Triple Gull stitch in the first Barbara Walker Treasury, I knew I had to put it into a sock. It's so much fun to work. This pair is made with Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Winter Sky. Love the yarn & love the color. Thanks, Jen & Kassandra for the tests!

Just another of our little group of new patterns for spring--small projects for the warming weather. The Seagull Socks, or Stocainnean Fhaoileag* in the lovely Scots Gaelic.

Le deagh dhùrachd!
With best wishes!

The socks were fun to knit - after I got the hang of the 2 circs thing. Whenever I get the camera back from the boy, I'll take a pic. He said he doesn't know where the camera is. *sigh* One day I'll have to save my pennies for one of my own.
