Proof That Surfing Can Be Dangerous To Your Wallet

Checked out Jeanie Townsend's blog to see what's doing and she had posted about these gorgeous socks. As if I hadn't enough trouble with knitter's ADD and second sock syndrome! OTOH, they might look nice in the Shell over Cocoa Butter Sundara yarn I have in my stash.....

Meanwhile, check out these babies I just finished:

Do they look good enough to eat wear or what? One day I will master the art of the neat Kitchener stitch at the sock toe. I hope.

New socks started: Evelyn Clark's Lupine Lace, featuring Sundara Yarn Sport Merino in Blue-Violet over Cotton Candy. Love her sock patterns. As always, I tweak a bit: eye of partridge flap and French heel. EoP flap just looks better to me for some patterns than heel stitch, dressier, I guess. French heel is my fave, undoubtedly due to the fact that it fits me best of them all.


Have I worked on Rogue? Sad to say, not for a while. But with the coming of colder weather, I'm sure I'll be nagged by a certain daughter to get back to work on it.

Oh man, those socks are fantabulous! Where did you gt the yarn? I seem to remember seeing something like this before, but they were a sport-weight--too heavy for my climate. Are yours fingering-weight?

Thanks for the compliment.
Yes, these are single-ply sock or fingering weight. The yarn comes from Freshisle Fibers, freshislefibers.com, and it comes in a few weights, up to DK or even worsted. I wish Marian would do a cotton-wool blend (Meilenweit) for summer in this and her kiwi stripes, maybe if we both ask she'll do it?

Oh please do think about doing a cotton blend in watermelon! My kids are fighting over who gets a pair of watermelon socks next, I'll have to buy more yarn to make more socks.
