priceless



hot pink, special ordered carpet for daughters room, $---.00
chocolate brown uggs, for me, $---.00
the sight of your hand knit socks, laying on the floor, matching both, PRICELESS!
Some Things Money Can't Buy!

It is so true. We all know how much good yarn costs, and the amount of time that goes into knitting something. There are those that think we are crazy to make something when you can buy it for a lot less. (then there are those that think that we save money by making these things HA!) But, those are the people that don't know the rewarding feeling we get when we see or wear our special things. You can't buy that feeling!

I made these socks back in the fall. I first saw them on Alicia's blog, fell in love with them, and had to make them. As it turned out the colorway was discontinued! AHHH! My mother was on the phone for 2 days, calling every yarn store in the country that sold Skacel products looking for it. She did indeed find some. Thanks mom! I am still in love with this colorway and these socks!

Oh, I *so* agree with what you wrote! And the socks look so amazing - as well as the carpet and the boots - the perfect match, I'd say! ;)

Now that I can knit socks, those around me are starting to get it - yes I could buy it, but the satisfaction is so much better!! And isn't it fun all the things that make them even cooler - like your boots and carpet!

love the colours- neapolitan ice cream! From a purely economic point, it doesn't make sense to knit, but if you put in the satisfaction and pleasure of knitting, it just about adds up :)

I love that yarn, but haven't had any luck finding it. I linked here from Scout, and love your blog! I love to knit, love to bake with my kids, and ABSOLUTELY love your aprons! Adorable!
