Socktoberfest socks complete

Well... I finally decided to finish the toe of my sock yesterday afternoon. I did start the skirt, but got frustrated because there is a mistake at the beginning of the pattern. They fail to tell you to do 4 rows of garter stitch! Anyhow, it was a good thing, because I LOVE THESE SOCKS! I could hardly wait to put them on and wear them, which I did to our weekly Sunday night dinner with the inlaws.



This is my husbands idea of an "action shot" Good job honey!


Two more just because I think they are so great poping out of the top of these great boots. I saw these boots a couple of years ago in the VOGUE Knitting Holiday 2004, and was on a total quest to find them. I did, and can't tell you how much I love them too! I know mom, all of that knitting and I have them hiding under the boot. But remember I always know "what lies beneath"!

hey leslie -

couldn't find your e-mail address to reply to your comment, so thought I'd take this route.

The rowanspun jacket is of my own devices. I've had the pattern in mind for some time now, but have finally gotten around to making it happen. We'll see how it all shapes up.

Thanks!

I totally love these socks, they look fantastic - the perfect length for cold winter days, and the colors rock big time! Fantastic action shots too!

Love the socks and the boots. I had boots almost exactly like those in the 70s. Guess that makes me old. :o)
