One down...One to go...

Complicated...
Yes...
One sock down...and one more to go..
If I have enough patience that is...

One down...one to go...

From Bendigo Woollen mill...
In carnation...
I has just the right amount of stretch for socks
and is very soft...

One down...one to go...

I ordered the 8 ply which is very thick
I think it would work really well on a thick knitted sock as well..
Just don't know if I can get my shoes on with these thou...

One down...one to go...

It looks so lovely and romantic! (I grew up a Laura Ashley girl....), but I admire your patience, looks rather complicated indeed, good luck on the second one! X Floortje

It looks AMAZING! And lovely and warm, no doubt. You are just too clever! :-)
If they don't fit in your shoes, maybe they could be very-fancy-socks-for-wearing-with-gum-boots?? No one would see them under your gum boots, but YOU'd know how pretty your feet look inside those wellies! :)

These socks are so beautiful, the color is perfect. Jump right into sock number 2 so you avoid second sock syndrome.

Socks are really pretty but I would like to know what make of shoes you are wearing. They look very comfy.

I didn't think I would say yes to crochet socks BUT Yes, Yes, Yes....
Keep going and start no 2, gorgeous! That Bendigo wool is divine also :-)

Frances said...

Your sock is that perfect mix of traditional and totally modern design. You answered my question about whether the crocheting would allow enough stretch for a good fit.

The sock looks great over the black tights. Maybe, you might even consider getting a new pair of shoes that would be completely dedicated to showing off the completed pair of socks? They will deserve showcasing!

Best wishes.

Look how pretty. You are just a smartie pants, aren't you? hee-hee. If it takes patience, I'm out. That's not my strong suit. Love the rosie color and the pattern though.

Kerstin said...

It looks beautiful. If there is a mathematical rule on the amount of pink to lacy pattern, you've hit it.

The hardest task in all of craftdom is to start on the second sock/glove/mitten/sleeve. Good luck! I look forward to seeing the pair.
