Feet Come in All Sizes

For today's Monday project photos, I've put together a group of sock photos in a range of feet from the cutest little feet imaginable to a pair of large man-feet. I'm taking a risk here folks by sharing three projects in one day. I still have a couple more photos in my queue for future Mondays, but I'm counting on all of you to come through with more project photos to keep this Monday feature going. Just e-mail those photos to me, along with any information you'd like to share about your project.

Now on to today's array of feet!

First up are socks for the feet we all know. Women's feet. Mid-sized feet. The feet most of us see when we look down.

The socks were knit by Tina. They are the infamous Monkey Socks from Knitty. Tina used FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Midnight Passion colorway. You can see more of the monkey-sock goodness and a better look at the color in this closeup.

Wonderful job, Tina! To learn more about Tina's knitting endeavors, pop on over to her blog.

Next up is a darling pair of booties, to fit the cutest little feet imaginable. April knit these booties with FF Alpaca/Wool DK Yarn in the Duck Season colorway.

In April's blog, she says that these are "so ridiculously adorable it makes your ovaries cramp." Haha! Ain't that the truth? More of April's knitting and engaging chat is just a click away on her blog.

Last up is my personal favorite. Now, now . . . don't shake your heads and think that I'm not giving due credit to Tina and April for their wonderful work! It's not that at all. It's not the knitting itself (although the knitting is wonderful!) that I'm giving a special "favorite" status, but rather the photo. Is this not the cutest thing you ever saw?

These socks were knit by Sarah for her husband and her daughter. She used FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Deepest Forest colorway. The pattern is the Sock Pattern to End All Sock Patterns by the ever-fabulous Anne of KnitSpot. If you haven't seen this pattern yet, pop over to the catalogue on the KnitSpot site and check it out. It's a standard sock pattern, but it's written to accommodate the yarn of your choosing. A little worksheet is included to enter gauge details and foot size. You then follow a few simple calculations and have a custom-fit sock pattern all ready to go. You can stick with a straightforward sock or add your own stitch and pattern details. You can now also purchase this pattern in the new pattern section of my Etsy shop.

Here's another photo of these darling dad and daughter feet!

A big Thank You to Tina, April and Sarah for sharing your photos! Everyone have a fabulous start to your week!

All are beautiful! I'm wondering whether Sarah managed to knit the father/daughter socks from one 550-yard skein. (I love the generous-sized FF sock yarn skeins.)

Beautiful socks, all! I love that Monkey Sock design (but why o why is it called Monkey?) and plan to use one of the many FF sock yarns I have in stash to knit one myself. Yippee!

Great socks. They are all beautiful. I love the picture of the Daddy and daughter saocks too. It is such a great memory to have for them all.

OMG I love the choice of color for the Monkey Socks!

I love all of the projects - the vibrancy of the Minkey socks just grabbed me though! Good job to everyone - including the dyer:)
