They're beautiful!

Those socks are Beautiful! They look better in the solid color that you used then the ones shown on the pattern. I have dial-up and it took what seemed forever to down load, but wow it was worth the wait!
Sounds like you are feeling better. I'm glad for you!

They are beautiful! Lucky sock pal!

YOU MADE IT!! Well done! They're just gorgeous! The edge looks fine, too.

Btw, Labour Day is on May 1st in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
We had a beautiful warm(er) spring day. Not exactly knit sweater weather for Johanna...;-)

I might try socks like that in another 5 or 6 years. They are wonderful. And they look very complicated.
Good Job getting them done on time.

Lucia said...

For me? How sweet!

(Well, probably not, but they are for one lucky person, that's for sure.)

I love the socks but I'm wondering where you printed out that nifty sockapaloooza tag to wrap around your socks. :)

Dorothy said...

Beautiful. They really turned out well!

Those socks are gorgeous, and that solid color works wonderfully with the delicate pattern. Your sockpal is so lucky :)

Rhonda said...

Oh I LOVE the color! Lucky pal to get those.

It's a gorgeous yarn, a wonderful colour (I'm sure you didn't pick it because your Pal hates it & you want them back - hee hee) and it's a lovely pattern. You did a great job and I'm super impressed with all of you making these sock bands.

Kelly said...

Great job! The socks are beautiful.

Oh my God!!! They are gorgeous and she will!!!!! Squares on the way. :0) They probably won't make the deadline because of customs....but that's ok. As long as they get there. :0)

amy said...

i made the same socks in a variegated colorway and yours in the subtle color are much better. the pattern (so beautiful) really pops!

Cynthia, I want to tell some folks I know about Warming Grace, but I don't find a simple explanation of what it is among your posts. Because you continue to update it, it is somewhat fragmented. May I suggest and offer to write up, a summary of what the project is and why you are tackling it? It could be linked to at the top of your page so visitors would not have to scroll through your other unrelated posts to find out about it. It could even be its own blog, if you think that would work easier. I am also willing to create a blog for this purpose if you'd like me to.

Hi from Austria! Wow, I'm absolutely impressed with these socks, they are gorgeous! The color is so beautiful, perfect for spring, and the pattern rocks! Great work done - your sockpal certainly is the lucky one!

Samantha said...

Happy Birthday Nick!!

brewerburns said...

Lovely socks!

Julie said...

It's incredible how fast you can knit when you put your mind to it!! The socks look great-love the colour.

Happy Birthday Nick.

Lord-A-Light Lady! I thought that I was getting sock knitting. I just finished my second pair of socks.I am looking for my next sock project and so I (haha) downloaded the instructions and took a quick peek. Holy Hanna! I didn't even get to the end of the second sectence before I hit trouble. What is a magic loop? How do you "tbl"? And that whole "wrap" thing leaves me a cold sweat.
I bow to your superior knowledge.

Leah said...

Just gorgeous! i am knitting those socks in the April Project Spectrum colors of yellow and orange. Obviously haven't finished in April, but yours have certainly motivated me!

kelli ann said...

Courtney said...
