Ooh! This pair is so fun and awesome besides being in tune with one of Fall's top colors.


Those are very bright socks indeed! But super pretty as well, I just love them! I'm sure your swap partner will be overjoyed to receive them! I'm also so surprised that you have zero socks on the needles right now, does this mean that your WIPs are dwindling?


I truly LOVE these pinky colorway sox!!!!!!!
I love to knit sox
there's never enough time to knit all that cry out to me.

You're posting some very tempting patterns.

A lucky swap partner indeed! Love the sock inspiration you posted - I am in a sock mood myself. As you said, perfect Olympic-watching knitting. :)


I love those socks! The color is just so much fun and the pattern just works so well for it.
The photos you showed are also very pretty! Good luck with your next pair!
I wish I could be watching the olympics, but I don't get cable. However, I am participating in the Ravellenic Games


So cute!


Looks great! I love the Olympics!


happy monday andi! i am lovin' those swap socks (lucky girl!!!)~ i'm gonna do the no purls for my next pair of socks~ i've been working on a pair of socks for most of the summer...lol & i only have one sock done (well, almost done...i have to finish the toe)..would you email me some of your motivation please????

have a great week my friend!




You can't look at those socks and not smile! I haven't made any socks for a while, perhaps I need to get some more on my needles.
I was so excited when you said you were doing a Mara too - don't know if that's the shawl you mentioned in your last post? I've just finished mine, and it's blocking now!
So now I'm picking my next shawl pattern to do. Thinking of Scalene, or Color Affection, or an Oaklet - loved the one you linked to in your last post. Decisions, decisions :)


Love the texture of those socks! Thinking that the pattern could be modified into a cowl and would look as nice!

Yes; I'm watching the games. Every sport. Whatever NBC broadcast :-)

Have a wonderful week!

Oh wow - the socks looks awesome!


Those bright socks are awesome! I just love brightly colored socks. It feels like a party on my feet.

Mr. Puffy

Yeah, I love a screaming colored sock yarn too. Can't wait to CO for my charmingly garish stripy socks :) Love those patterns you showed - such a cute button on the cuff!


Nothing wrong with screaming brights.


i love the happy pink socks! i wonder which you've cast on now... :)


Very pretty indeed!!


Really cute socks! No purl Monkeys hey? That's interesting! I look forward to see the next socks on your needles! Have a great rest of the week!


Those swap socks make me want to run home start knitting some socks!


These socks are so fun and cheerful! Your sock swap partner is so fortunate! Beautifully done...lucky feet!


All the fabulous socks! I love the way your Monkeys turned out. Now what have you cast on, though...
