sock mojo on the move

margene's sock mojo has taken a trip down south. thanks margene for sharing the mojo.

love love love the way her mystery socks turned out.

why look, i just happen to have a skein of kim's absolutely gobsmacking gorgeous tupelo honey sock yarn in stash.

first time trying out the knitpicks harmony dpns, i like them.
started on 2.25s, figuring the cables would pull in. hmm, tried on the cuff after the first 30 rows of the ribbing. a bit loose. rip rip rip.
start again on 2mms, new cuff fits fine.
should have listened to my innerknitter. the sock turned out a wee bit snug for my foot, so i decided to knit them for my ddil as a christmas present.

natalie likes to wear her socks with flipflops, so i knit her thong toes. her feet are also longer then mine, so i added an extra bit to the foot chart.
thanks so much kristen for sharing a wonderful fun pattern!

this fearless fibers sock yarn started life as a pair of guided by love socks. the color is not dark enough to show the lace paws prints against my foot. the yarn was part of a fearless fibers sock club, the color is guttony. i love deb's light superwash merino sock yarn, it's a wee bit thinner than most sock yarns, and very soft. some of deb's new tight twist sock yarn is winging it's way to me.

the yarn really wanted to be a soft squishy pair of 2x2 rib socks for a kind compassionate vet. i hope he likes them :-)

can you believe this kitty puppy snoozefest? shimmo really has been a gift from above.
thanks to all for the kind words about my shotsie.
lo, i cannot begin to tell you what a comfort your words have been to me.

Pretty! Isn't it funny how pets become much more snuggable when cool weather hits?!?

Your knits are always gorgeous, retail therapy is good too, but the snuggle fest is too adorable :) I hope it helps.

Now the thong socks?!? Never would have thought of that one but it makes such pretty sense.
