Hooray! I actually finished my Sock Pal’s socks on time (which was about 2 weeks ago).  But, like I said before, I’ve been slow to post lately.

Want to see some socks?



This is a Trekking yarn.  It didn’t really have a name, but I named it “Neopolitan” because it reminded me of ice cream.  It was a hoot to work with.  I thought they were much too big, but then I put them on for the photo shoot and they seemed to be ok.  I sure hope they fit my sock pal!  Molly, I hope you are enjoying your socks.

These are only my second pair of completed socks, and I do think I’m getting much better at this whole sock thing.  Plus, I’m getting a little faster.  These only took me just over 2 months to finish.   I loved how they came out not matching with the stripes.  I don’t know why, but I just love when homemade socks are similar, but not quite match.

My sock pal sent me the most beautiful pair of socks.  They are simply delightful, thank you!  I ended up sick the week I got them, and I wore them all around while my fever was raging and my toes were freezing.  I haven’t gotten any action shots of my socks yet, but you can visit the to check out my socks. Thanks Jennie!  I really have to learn how to cable!


  1. Love the socks… the colours remind me of laffy taffy. Yum! I’m sure your pal will love them.
