socks galore


Just realised, that even if I can't produce something new or finish off old yarn projects at the moment, I can at least share some magic with the socks I did finish past spring, took pictures of, but didn't show. So, hooray for easy solutions to handmade-by-yours-truly-show-and-tell!

If this winter will be anything like last year - fingers crossed for not really, just a reasonable amount of snow and milder temperatures. Touch wood on that wish - these socks galore will come very handy and perky for the months to come...


Love the pale, sunny colours in these, although in general I do prefer the darker, deeper, more practical colour scheme when it comes to socks...


More paleness, blue-beige,
for days when one feels more subdued.


This pair of quite lovely and bouncy in blue-green I made for M for Christmas - we have basically stopped giving/getting actual Christmas gifts in the family years ago, but still something special and handmade is nice to give/get...


Perky turquoise-orange-blue.


These I'd usually call a complete bland bore.
But I can't help but being smitten by
their melted chocolate ice-cream looks.


The obvious proof of 'the more the merrier',
at least when it comes to colours.


I also did make three pairs of extra long magical socks, for myself only. (And I'll never ever make any that long again, it took forever and from a user-friendly point of view I'm not that pleased with result actually.) This violet-purple-beigey pair with a furry brim being one.

The other two I've decided to add some extra quirky details to. When thumb says go ahead with those last finishing touches. I will say and show as much as they are most perky in colours.


With all the sock knitting that went on last season - I made about 30 pair (sold, gifts, for self) - I believe I'm kind of all socked out. For some quite obvious reasons I don't feel the least bit interested in making anymore socks now... Though that feeling might change if I spot some new colours (magic) or some interesting patterns I suppose.

Previous magic socks (in other colours obviously) can be seen in these posts;

And lest not forget the socks essential companions
the magical wrist warmers

I love socks. They are one of the reason to try learn to knit.
It's difficult to choose but may by like most chocolate ice-cream.
But they all are gorgeous.

Pia, there is something magic about your hand knitted socks in our fast throw away society. They all are super schoen!
