It's Socktober!

Remember Socksgiving?
Thanks to Jennifer's wonderful coaching I managed to knit a lovely pair of socks back then and then another pair.
And nothing since then.

Now I'm tackling socks again.
Socktober
As you can see I haven't reached my nemesis (the turning of the heel) yet.
Jennifer, can I have you on speed dial?
(These are the "Embossed Leaves Socks" from this book.)

Pin It!

Oh my, those are going to be gorgeous. I've never knit, but it's on my 2009 resolution list already.

Shannon said...

Love the color and the pattern! Knitting socks is something I have always wanted to try but am nervous. Maybe I'll give this book a try:)

I'm knitting a sock too! Sure, you can call if you run into trouble but you'll do fine. I love that pattern. I have that book but haven't made anything from it yet.

Rebecca said...

The color and pattern in the socks is sooooo lovely. I've never made a pair of socks but did knit a Christmas stocking a very long time ago. Knit on, my lady! And good luck with the heel. I'm glad it's you... not me. But then again, you get to own this beautiful pair.

Beautiful socks! I think I may have to put that book on my Christmas list.

they are looking lovely. I must learn to knit socks!

Penny said...

they are absolutely beautiful Anina! The color you chose lends well to the pattern. I guess any color you choose would lend well to that amazing pattern!

serenitymeadow said...

These are so pretty! So much more girlie than the ones I make. I especially love the soft peach color. I must try my hand at finding a different pattern like this because I am really tired of knitting the same basic beginner's sock. Thanks for the inspiration to try something new, Anina.
