isisfae: congratulations! Those sure are award winning socks!

I finished mine about a week ago and love them! These are the first pair of wool socks I have knit for myself and was really surprised that they kept my feet toasty warm, but not hot and sweaty. I really think they are a bit too thick to wear with shoes, but they make great house socks.
Yarn: KnitPicks Swish Superwash (4 skeins-Dublin)
size US4 dpn


I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

These are my terrific Tyrolean stockings.  Full time employment dampens my progress exponentially.  They are knit with a very "rustic" yarn that I recycled from a sweater that had great fiber content (80% wool/ 20% angora) but was hideous.

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

Those are beautiful!  Did they take forever? 
I recently finished Clessidra from Knitty and they took so long that I swore off cabled socks - but now I may be changing my mind  Wink
