Socks Lately

Moving rather interrupted all craftiness, but here are two projects I completed just before the move:

These socks have cables that weave within each other all down the sock. I made them for a LibraryThing friend who wanted to give them to his wife for her birthday. The yarn was lovely to work with -- it's by Cherry Tree Hill, so that's not especially surprising.

Pictures don't do these socks justice. I think I need a new camera. :)

These were for another LibraryThing friend who got a blurb from her review published on the back cover of a book. I thought such an accomplishment deserved a pair of socks!

Once again, I'm not thrilled with the pictures. The pattern has little bunches that bring the surrounding stitches closer so that they sort of fan out towards the top, but it's difficult to make out the effect from the photos.

  1. Hey! Those are my socks! I love love love them! :D

  2. They are indeed! It's good to hear that you love them. I hesitated in posting photos, wondering what you'd think of my having worn them for taking pictures. Apparently I've decided to hope you wouldn't mind. ;)

  3. You might say the photos don't do them justice but I applaud your excellent skills! These socks are beautiful. I am laughing about the sock modeling hesitation. :)

  4. Awwww....I've known you for long enough now that I knew you wore them to take a picture! It's going to freak you out when I wear a picture of your housewarming gift though! ;)

    I've gone without a picture for my profile for a while now...because I didn't know what to go with now, but if you look to the side, you'll see that I finally decided to go with a picture of my feet in your socks!

  5. And it has been forever since I've been here, obviously!

    Thank you, K! You are always so sweet! (Though you were also laughing at me...) ;)

    Bib, that makes me insanely curious to know what you're making for me! I'm glad you knew I would model your socks and didn't seem to mind. And they are still advertised on your profile! I am flattered.
