The Sock Parade Continues

For today’s Monday customer projects, I have two more pair of socks to show you. They’re not just socks though. They’re great socks!

First up are these “Genevieve” socks by Liz. She knit these socks with FF Classic Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Spring Breeze colorway.



Isn’t the detail lovely? Look at these cute little heels, with the cables up the back!



You can find the pattern on Liz’s blog. Just search around for the June 22nd post and you’ll find it. Fabulous job, Liz! And thank you for posting the pattern on your blog. Very nice!!

Next up are these little gems by Alison. They are “Monkey Socks” knit in FF Classic Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Desert Flower colorway.



I shared another photo of Monkey Socks knit by Tina in FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn back on July 2nd. It’s such fun to see the difference in the same pattern knit with a rainbow dyed yarn (that is, mixed and mingled colors) and a handpainted yarn. Both versions of the Monkey Socks are just lovely, yet so very different.

Thank you again to Liz and Alison for sharing their photos. Lovely work!

Everyone keep the photos coming. Just send them to me by e-mail and I’ll put them in the queue for a future Monday posting.

Now go knit! And don't forget the Seven Deadly Sins Sock Yarn Club that I announced on Friday (see prior post). Less than 20 spots remain available!

Love the socks. They are both lovely.

You can never have too many handknit socks! Both pairs are beautiful. The Monkey socks comparison is interesting--the link takes you to July 9, but the rainbow-dyed socks are there under "Feet Come in All Sizes" (at the bottom of the list in the sidebar).

Oops ... my apologies. Link to Tina's Monkey Socks is now fixed.

Thanks, Lynne :)

Oh yeah, I love the turquoise socks. And the Monkeys too, of course, it's just the turquoise ones are more my style. ;) The comparison between the two Monkey socks are really fascinating, thanks for linking so we could check back!

And now I've gotta hop over to Liz's blog and get that pattern. [g]
