like cozy wool socks on cold feet....

....that's what you guys are!
Thanks for all the heart warming words on the interview. Jodi emailed me the sweetest note commenting on how wonderful all of you were leaving such nice sentiments on her blog. I've been so blessed by this blogging community...It's been a surprising, wonderful and unexpected blessing of blogging. You all are the best!Just as I smile when I put on hand knit socks, I smile at each and every comment that you guys leave. (seriously!) And speaking of cozy wool socks.....I finished my Mystery Socks. {The Mystery Sock Knitalong is a fun event that Kirsten Kapur of Through the Loops so graciously runs. She specially designed a pair of socks for this knitalong and each week a new part of the pattern is posted for you to knit. In a month, you've got a cute pair of hand knit socks. (or at least that's the plan) I participated last year and I enjoyed it even more this year. Thanks Kristen.} I love the yarn that I used for these socks and I love the pattern...just not sure I love them so much together. I might have been better off with a solid yarn that would have shown off the stitch pattern better...oh well, live and learn. I'll still enjoy them and I'll smile every time I put them on. Unless Maggie steals them from me. I've got to keep an eye on her, I had her model them for blog/ravelry pictures and I had a hard time getting them back.

Your socks look very warm and cozy! The Elizabeth Zimmerman knit-a-long I am doing has socks for November so I will be casting on for a pair this afternoon.

Your socks are beautiful! I really need to move beyond crocheting and try my hand at knitting. You are an inspiration.

I need to learn how to knit better but I would like to make some nice scarves and sweaters. I have dreams of all the nice things I will make when I learn how to knit well.

I really enjoyed your interview. So great. I am glad to have found your blog and met you.

from one cozy wool sock to another, "those are some fabulous socks!" I love the hand painted yarn you chose. and there is really only one solution for maggie stealing your socks - you must teach her to knit.

Those socks are great! Maybe my new years resolution will be to learn to knit some for myself!

mark said...

great job on the socks. i like the yarn choice. and while i would never endorse stealing, it seams (pun totally intended) that a new pair of hand knit socks is the perfect payment for a modeling job!

Don't you just love this blogging community! I am loving it more than I ever thought I would! And those socks are just great...I was just commenting on someone else's blog that I have got to start knitting socks!

Christina said...

Hmmm...if I was at your house you might have two people to watch for sock "borrowing." : ) They look so comfy, and I love the colors!

FABULOUS!!!!!!!!
i am no where near finishing....
and seeing yours makes me want to knit this very moment!!!

Stephanie said...

That pattern is very pretty, and I'm sure that a solid color would have made it stand out more. Although I have no problem seeing the beautiful pattern, so I'd say you have a winner with such pretty yarn too!

Your socks look great. I'm way behind but I've traded in my knitting needles for a paint brush. Hopefully I'll be back on track soon.

Liz said...

They look fantastic! I really need to learn how to knit.

Gigi said...

Oooo pretty pretty! Love the fall leaves colors of your yarn.
I heartily agree with your comments about this blogging community. It's an amazing source of ideas, encouragement, support and fun. I don't think I'd have ever learned to knit without it.
Blessings,

Hi, Lisa! What a lovely post... but then you are a lovely spirit. :o) And lovely are those socks too! I just LOVE the yarn... This so makes me wish I were better at sock-knitting. I can knit a lot, but sock-knitting eludes me--LOL! Happy weekend to you & your...may it be cozy! ((HUGS))

Anna said...

Such gorgeous socks! The yarn is adorable.

The socks look great. I'm just finishing my second pair. I ripped the first because I just didn't love the yarn in that pattern. It's such an easy way to knit socks isn't it.

I'm going to start the November Miss Marple socks too. You should check it out - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/miss-marple-3

Jessica said...

I am so far behind on those socks--It is fun to see how your turned out--it gives me encouragement to finish them!
