Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends! Here, the sewing machine has been busy but nothing to show right now. Though I do have some finished craftiness…

Finished Socks!

I knit socks! Cozy pretty socks that fit really well. This was my first time knitting socks and it won’t be my last.

By the way – I’m finally on twitter, follow me if you wanna!

    I love knitting socks too! What yarn did you use? I love the color.

    wow, socks! awesome… I’m totally impressed! I just finished knitting a scarf — socks seem a bit too intimidating!

    Very cool! I have been knitting up a storm recently but have yet to try socks! Is it just me, or does it looks like there is no leg in the right sock? Maybe I’m just seeing things (or not seeing things as the case may be) ;)

    Excellent socks! My mom knits me beautiful socks, which I love (a) because I don’t have to make them myself and (b) they are cosy and soft and (c) she lives 4000km away but when I wear them I feel like she’s right here.

    Lovely socks! I’m such a handknit sock addict now, and I hate wearing anything else.

    Those are amazing and so beautiful! They actually are the first handknit socks I’ve seen that I would want to wear…most of them are so chunky looking, but yours are smooth, soft and totally touchy-feely. Good job!

    Sock knitting is definitely addicting! For me, it’s fun to knit them and fun to wear them–what could be better??
