85 Degrees? Wool Socks!


Hedera is finally done! Look closely and you'll see a few mistakes...well don't look that close. These were some seriously small stitches but it is a pretty result, isn't it? All that knitting through the back loop paid off. I love that straight, strong ridge. It's a nice change to see a sock where the design emphasis is not in variegated yarn, but in the stitch work.

Now, here's a cool thing. Remember my little tree in a barrel from last season? Well, the snapdragons re-seeded themselves into the drainage hole and are growing out the side. Gorgeous! I surely could not have planned such loveliness. Nature is brilliant.

That is beautiful!
The barrel and the stitching on your socks - I didn't see anything wrong with them, they look totally gorgeous. How brave of you to model them in the broiling heat!

The socks are lovely. I could only detect beauty in that photo. I was in the Annex this afternoon. I thought I had entered a concrete oven. How did you ever so calmly model wool socks in that heat?

Looking good! The socks are beautiful (still not tempting me to knit any tho!) and the flowers look great!

PS. I have some Sandras for you...

Wow, your Hederas look absolutely awesome - I for one couldn't find a mistake in them, they're perfect as they are! Very beautiful colorway too!
