Good For Me!




I shouldn't be as proud of these socks as I am, but I am. I had quite a bit of trouble getting started with them, and I'm almost surprised that I've finished them. I really like Spilly Jane's patterns, but this pattern is one of my favorites. I left off her skulls this time, but next time I'll add them back because they are kind of a neat addition to the pattern.

It's a pretty safe bet that I won't be wearing these socks anytime soon, considering that it was 72 degrees today, but I'll keep them lying around the living room for a while just to enjoy them.

Oooh, aren't they pretty! I love the little band of white hearts (?) in them!

Well, you'll have them to look forward to, when the weather is nippy again, as we know it will. Good for you!

Hey! I just bought a pattern from her on Knit Picks - it's a cupcake mitten pattern. So funny.

80 degrees in your forecast!? OH it would be like I was in heaven. To walk out and feel a blast of hot air on my face would be divine. Just divine.

They are VERY pretty. Congrats on the finish.

It's gotten cold again, so perhaps you are getting a few wearings in? Those are awesome socks! I keep meaning to try knitting socks, but I've been too busy. Perhaps this summer I'll give it a try?

Those are darling socks. I haven't yet done two colors in socks.
