S is for Socks


I got the pictures to upload over the weekend!!  Yay!!  I wanted to first off say that I took a break on the sock I was working on in the last post - the one where I ended up in the "black hole of knitting" and went to bed that night.  I started fresh in the morning and it flew right along!!  It's now done and waiting for it's photo shoot.  Today is a lovely sunny day so I should be able to take a few pictures a little later. 

The socks in the above photo are ones that I knit for my Mom while in Norway.  I used DROPS Fabel in a colourway that Mom picked out.  They are plain vanilla and have a 5" leg. 

I started the pair of socks above before I left on my trip, but I had only gotten a bit of the leg portion done on the first sock.  I picked them back up again a couple weeks ago and finished them off during my "vacation".  These were the socks I was knitting at the beach in the photo the other day.  I used Knit Picks Felici in the colour Afternoon.  They are for me and are plain vanilla's with a nice long 8" leg.  Now that I look at them, I should have made them into knee socks, because I like the colour so much!!  I have some Felici in the Tiki colour so maybe that is what I will do with it.

Well, that's all for today.  I'm in the middle of baking bread and while waiting for it to rise, I think I will do a little crocheting.  I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!!

Much Love, xx   


  1. What do you mean by "plain vanilla"? Is that the pattern name?
    That Felici yarn stripes up very nicely! Your mom's striped uniquely as well.

  2. Yep, Plain Vanilla is the pattern - it means that it's just plain stockinette with a little ribbing at the cuff. I find them great for simple knitting :)
    I agree, the Felici stripes are my favourite!!

  3. Your socks are so lovely. I haven't yet knit one pair (except a baby pair), and you made me desperately want to .

  4. Thanks Lucy!! I highly recommend knitting them, they're lots of fun :)
