wo

It didn't take long to fix my mistake.
And now I have a pair of socks to fit either Libby (size 7) or myself.
Truly one fun knit. Knowing so many others out there are knitting this right along with you makes it even better. Thanks Kirsten for putting this together.
I used Cascade Heritage, color 5631 on size 2 needles.

Last night, Andrew walked by my computer while my blog was on the screen. He stopped dead in his tracks. "WO" he said. Not 'wow' or 'woo' , but WO! "What?" I said. "Did you write in your coffee with nasal spray?" he replied.
He was referring to my blog header. Honestly, kids can be so darn funny.

Make it a great one!

Those turned out so great! I love the cabled heel flap. So cute!

Alison said...

Nasal spray? You have one that comes out like paint? Too funny! Sometimes I wonder where kids come up with the connections they do... my current 4 yr old is the silliest, seriously, we're still trying to figure her out!!

Lovely socks- they look so cozy!

Jennifer said...

They look fantastic, and oh so cozy snuggled up with that beautiful blanket. How funny about your coffee.

Poshyarns said...

I shrieked when I read this, I love that he thinks you might have done that in the pursuit of a good blog shot!!

The socks are gorgeous of course.

Thimbleanna said...

Nasal Spray??? That's hysterical! Beautiful socks! As I watched others knit them I felt little pangs of regret for not joining in!

Hilary said...

Ah, what pretty socks. I love that dark grey color and the cables are just lovely. The nasal spray comment is hilarious!! That would be pretty impressive...

Renee said...

Kids say the darnest things... lol

Great socks!

Jessica said...

Kids really are a hoot-I love what they come up with. I've decided I don't like my yarn I chose for the knit-along so off to the yarn shop I go (or maybe that is an excuse to go there!)

Christina said...

Lovely pattern, and I like the color you used.

LOL, he's hilarious!

Seanna Lea said...

Pretty socks. I love Cascade Heritage (I've used some of the variegated).

The power of PhotoShop (or poor man's PhotoShop) compels you!

Suzanne said...

rhodespedal said...

That's too stinkin' funny! This is one of the reasons I love being a teacher. I keep a journal of all the hysterical things my students say!

sue said...

How funny is he saying that! Those socks are beautiful.

mary said...

the socks are really lovely! ...and I've been reading in Google Reader, so of course had to pull up the "real" blog to see the header - and my question is "what sweater are you wearing?" I love it!

Kate said...

Great socks - I've been looking for a pair with some good cabling action - thanks for providing the link to the pattern.

kim said...

You have truly inspired me to want to knit a pair of socks again. And I think you know that takes a lot. They are really beautiful. This pattern is so great.

Kristyn Knits said...

love your color choice. how perfectly practical. they'll be worn over and over again on size 7 or size 8 feet!

Trisha said...

They turned out beautifully! How do you like knitting with that yarn? I just picked up two hanks of Heritage to try. The yarn is a great price and the colors are pretty. I am trying to incorporate more solids in my sock stash for more intricate patterns.

Lisa said...

Okay I give up I'm not sure what WO stands for can someone enlighten me??

sorellaandcompany said...

Those look so comfy-cozy! I just ordered some yarn so that I can make a pair...

Elizabeth said...

This post made me anxious (since my socks are nowhere near completion) and then made me laugh out loud. And by complete coincidence I just saw this:

You should contact them with the nasal spray suggestion.
