February Socks


I'm excited to say that I've already finished my March socks!  I'm naming them Newport Beach Socks after the place in California where I first saw the Pacific Ocean.  The yarn colors remind me of the water, waves, and sand and rocks on the beach.

December Socks


My Circe socks.  I love the twist; the ribbing on the foot actually starts on the gusset and continues around to the top of the foot.

The picture of the single sock catches the color better.

Once again my sock is part of the 2013 Cookie A sock club.  I really enjoy her socks.  They are very challenging and I have had to learn new techniques.

November Socks



I just finished my Stardust socks, pattern by Adrienne Fong.

I knit them using Knit Picks Stroll Fingering, Tranquil, on  two 2.25 mm circular needles.  The beading was done as I went along using Mill Hill 8/0 glass beads in the color Opal Seafoam.

The second picture shows the back of the sock with beading and an eye of partridge heel flap.
