My mom's birthday is on St. Patrick's day, so March's 2012 LLE color, Sea Turtle Dream, was just too perfect not to make socks for her birthday gift. Handknit socks are my mom's favorite gift, so I couldn't resist! Even though the color is sold out, there are still a bunch of different colors to choose from the Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn. The Knitting Pure and Simple Beginner's Lightweight Socks Pattern is the best! It's so easy to follow, and I knew I would have no problem finishing the socks before her birthday.
