knitting socks

i am so excited -they're finished!

like my abused uggs? those babies keep my feet warm from september thru may. *note they're not pretty ones...they're functional ones ☺

i have a real affection for great striped socks. my best friend & i get each other socks for gifts pretty much every christmas. my boys usually get me socks for my stocking too.

so far i've been really leery about paying the price for wool socks, even though i could really use them. but now that i'm knitting, the opportunity is so sweet!

they say once you've worn handmade socks, you won't want to wear anything else. i'll let you know how that turns out ☺

so stay tuned... there are sure to be more socks in the very near future.

but for now, i'm heading onward to more power knitting for christmas! did you know there are only 30ish days till christmas? ee-gads!

No you did NOT make those???? Girl, seriously? I'm way impressed! I am a sock girl at heart. So far my Christmas list has 2 items on it - one of which is "knee socks from TJ Maxx or Gap". :)
