The socks have landed

I was just informed that the socks that I FINALLY finished have landed safe, sounds, and are already being loved and worn in their new home. My creation

The recipient? Ms. Nina Beana over at The Whole Self.
I wasn't sure what I was going to swap her back with, I loved the pin and the other goodies she put in the package for me so I wanted to make sure she had something special in return.

While waiting for the airplane (I flew on the Thursday when all the crap went down with the Euro airlines) to take me from lovely San Diego to home I had some extra time to knit. I finished these little puppies up in no time flat. I was actually sad that I hadn't stuck a few of my other projects in my carry on, good thing for this book.

There you have it, KNITTING content.

Love the sock photo collage. That ball of yarn really jumps off the screen at you.

Those socks make me look forward to handknit sock weather again.

Love the photos and the yarn. Those socks look so cozy and would be perfect with a pair of clog style birks.

I'd love to try to knit sockies.....just haven't found a pattern I like. Any suggestions? It has to be easy, I'm not good.

I vow to learn how to knit eventually. Just to make socks. Striped ones.
