serious summer sock love

I am having some serious sock love
These babies have been sitting on my needles waiting for me to close the toe,
for longer than I would like to admit
However, the task of finishing was sweetened by the blissful feeling of trying on
Admittedly it is only one....but still so nice

Feelings: Love it!

Still have not knit a pair of socks, or even one for that matter. Love the color! Very nice :)

Those are such great socks. Reminds me I have not knit socks for a long time. I am finally starting to slow down a bit and I have two weeks before my next class starts....and starting next week I work four days a week until the end of August. I SO can't wait. It has been crazy in my corner with work and school. I thought I was going to lose my mind for a while. I am just getting caught up on everyone's blogs etc.

A beautiful sock....I so want to be able to knit, but I need a very patient teacher (sigh). My mother would be perfect, but she lives an hour away -- too far for when I get myself into trouble. You look like a pro.

I love your new header.

I am amazed at knitting...since I don't knit!! Love the sox, the gorgeous bag...the fingerless gloves.
Have to mention those to my daughter, Rachel.
Thanks for stopping by...

I love it too! Socks are my thing this summer as well. I never thought I'd be so into sock knitting!

You close one heck of a toe!

Trying on one sock is the best feeling! Hope you're enjoying your summer.

Okay. I'll try them. I've been a knitter for year but have managed to avoid the sock obsession. My last attempt could've fit a Clydesdale. Truly. But those beauties look too comfy.

Hope you all had a good summer and autumn finds you well.
