Springtime Bandit for 2015

My first knitting project for 2015 is the Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn.  How many have I made already?  Five.  So this will be number six!  I can't help it.  I love a good pattern repeat that is easy on the eyes as well as easy to memorize.  There's something comforting about the familiar.  And I can't let the leftover Madelinetosh sock yarn in Iris or the Malabrigo sock yarn just sit in my stash unloved.  They make a perfect Springtime Bandit as I'm changing yarns every two rows.  Take a look:

I hope your knitting is bringing a smile to your day.  I know these yarns and colors are making me smile just looking at them.  I'm using my trusty printed Excel chart for the pattern repeats.  How do I love Excel...let me count the ways.  Happy Spring!
