Hot Dang I got me some Country Socks!

They are finished...finally. I think I started these before the milenneum (okay, maybe not but it was a while ago). I desparately want to do a pair of socks at the same time on two circulars but the deal I have with myself is to finish up what is on my needles right now (in sock world that is!). That would be the Country Socks and the Crazy Ass Socks (a.k.a. Oriel Socks). So I focused myself and got the Country Socks done. I even sewed in the ends (one of my other resolutions - doubters, I will make you believe!). I would have put them on my feet but holy it is so hot and humid I cannot make myself do it. I am so pleased with myself! Now onto to the Crazy Ass socks.....

Those are cute! You should have saved them to finish up in July, so you could have a project spectrum FO. :-) (I thought a month was plenty of time to knit green socks, but here it is, May 31, and I'm only halfway up the feet, and I started at the toes!) I can't wait to see the Crazy Ass socks. What a name.

Those are my favourite shades of purple! Love it..although I must agree with you, waaayyy to hot to put on now in this hot hot heat. The cold front just passed here in Hamilton, so maybe tomorrow will be a better day for you too. :-)

Hey there Cynthia- A FO is something to be proud of. There seems to be a virus going around- lack of knitting mojo.
Glad you got some, you Go, Girl!
and the socks are lovely.

They look very cozy and I'll bet you can where then tonight, since the temp. has dropped considerably - thank goodness.

Elizabeth said...

Wow, such gorgeous socks - you know, I looove purple, so these sure really jumped at me when I saw that pic! Great job!

Love, love, love the socks! I love handknit socks SO MUCH now, that I don't want to wear anything else now. All my store-bought socks are going to the grandkids ... who fight over who gets which color. Now really, I don't want to knit socks for ALL the grandchildren [too many & not enough time] so I'll have to include new store-bought socks for Christmas I think, huh? [besides the dolls I knit maybe] So much to do, so little time ... happy knitting.
