Blue Ribbon Socks

Before I dive into today's project feature, I want to give a quick heads-up that the signups are now open for the FF Whisper of Spring Lace Club! Woohoo! We're off and running at last :)

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming . . .

These lovely socks are Amy's rendition of the Slippery Socks by Olivia M from the Winter 07 edition of Knitty.

Amy knit these with FF Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Shades of Teal colorway. (Shades of Teal is now on the backburner, but it was retired due to its similarity to the popular Spellbound colorway, which is still available.)

Not only can Amy be proud of these socks because they're just plain smashing, but she also has a Blue Ribbon from the South Carolina State Fair for the Textile Craft category to prove it! Way to go, Amy!!!! And it's easy to see why these lovely little socks took the blue ribbon . . .

You can see more of Amy's beautiful work on Ravelry where she is socialconstruct.

A big Thank You to Amy for sharing her lovely work!
