Sockin’ in the New Year!

For today’s customer project photos, I have a lovely spread of socks to share with all of you. All of these socks were made using Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn.

Jersey Shore Deb made these darling socks for her daughter. The colorway is Sky and Clouds. Deb’s daughter wanted a simple sock and Deb obliged with a toe-up stockinet sock with a picot edge. This was her first pair of toe-up socks and what a lovely job she did! You can read more about Jersey Shore Deb’s knitting adventures on her blog.

Next we have Cherie’s “Eagle Flight” socks in in the Brick House colorway. She knit these fantastic socks as part of a Yahoo Sock Group (“Justsocks”) Knitalong. The pattern can be found here. Fabulous work, Cherie! The socks are smashing!

Next we have Molly’s socks in the Thoroughbred colorway. Molly reports that these are now her favorite socks, the first ones she wears after a wash every single time. Now that’s music to my ears! And no wonder they’re her faves. They look perfect in every way: great fit, perfect knit, and in one of Molly’s favorite colors. Who could ask for more?

Finally, we have a pair of socks knit by Bettina in the Smoke colorway. Unfortunately, the picture is a little dark and doesn’t do justice to the knitting by Bettina, but there’s also a closeup below with more exposure that gives you a better view of the details. The pattern is the Gentleman’s Socks with lozenge pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. Great job, Bettina!

Thank you all for continuing to share your pictures! Keep ‘em coming!!

Finally, I want to wish all of you and yours the very best of all things in the coming year. Happy New Year!

What a gorgeous flock of socks, Deb. Thanks to everyone for sending in pix, they're all inspiring! Also thanks for pattern links. (Like I need more sock pattern links, LOL, seeing as I haven't finished any yet...)

And Happy New Year, Deb - and to all your fellow customers, too.

Having finished my Christmas knitting, I just cast on a sock for me in your merino sock yarn (smoke colourway) - I love it! The colours are beautiful and it is so soft...What a treat! Thank you and Happy New Year from Canada.
