I Have Been Remiss...

Much to my dismay, I just realized that I did not give proper on-line THANKS and Boy Am I Lucky to Have Friends Like This Greetings to Viv and Rachael.

Both of these most marvelous individuals took the time to make me socks. Yes, this is a case of knitters knitting for knitters, but in the big picture, who better to appreciate the time effort and love that goes into knitting socks.

So first we have in a very most scrumptious rich color of Compari and Orange from Wollmeise are the Nutkin socks that Viv knit for me. I must admit, it was in return for getting her some Chewy Spaghetti Yarn from the Loopy Ewe, but I digress....












Then we have my Lovely Purple Lace Cuff Socks from Rachael. Infact these are the inspiration for my current Peaks and Valley Cuff Sock that I am working on. I might add that I think I may be able to start doing my toe decreases tonight and maybe even finish the first sock... wooo hoooo!!!


Thank You so very much my Most Wonderful Knitterly Friends!!! I promise one day I shall get caught up enough to return the favor. :D

Man, oh man! That Wollmeise even looks great in pictures. I've gotta get me some of that...but maybe in marine colors.

Nice socks. And scanning back into your archives - nice work in general. I will be following that lovely Clessidra as it progresses. I think I can learn something here.

You were absolutely right about the pics on Yarnstorm...GORGEOUS. And wouldn't the colors be beautiful in fibre??? ;-)
