SOCKS!!!!!!


YAY! I'm so excited. I finished my first pair of super-fabulous, comfy handknit sock! Ok, i finished a pair before but they were not very comfy...and these...these are the nicest thing ever. I LOVE them. I hand dyed jaggerspun generic grey yarn with red, gold and black in "spaghetti dyeing style". the yarn was lovely, but the socks surpass it! And all knit up they are amazing. My kitchner stitch still needs a bit of working on but otherwise...SUPER!

I'm always amazed that people actually make socks! Great Job!

I really, really want to try my hand at socks. I think I'm ready to attempt something shaped, and your beautiful example is really inspiring me!

By the way, I am loving the drop spindle that I purchased from you. Everyone's impressed with my yarn!

Perty! So are you addicted now?

I was wondering why I did that (inside out thing) Do you think it has to do with me knitting continental?

I absolutely love handknit socks, they are so very comfy, but I despise knitting them. Am waiting for a knitting fairy to take me on as a charity project - I wear a size 10 shoe (40 - 41) Euro - any takers?

They look so very comfy. I love the colors too.
