Happy New Sock Day!

What?!?!?  You didn’t get the memo?

Yes, today is New Sock Day.

No, not officially, but it is at MY house, anyway.

Look at what the sock fairy brought me this morning:


The sock fairy (AKA my mother) learned to knit socks this fall.  She’s been wearing that first yellow pair of socks for months bragging about how wonderful they are.  I thought I was going to get a pair of socks for Christmas, but Mom decided to move from 4 double pointed needles to 2 circular needles and had to start over.  I expect to be sporting a pair of striped socks sometime in the near future, too.

Thanks, Mom!

(And yes, just in case you are wondering from this picture or the one that’s posted in my 365 Photos album…I do have big feet.  Size 11 in fact.  I’m tall, OK?)

    Hi Suzanne, tell your mom to knit you a REALLY bright striped pair- the brighter the better! LOL Also, let me know how you did on your thrift store run…

    Hugs, Carla

    The socks look pretty darn good if I do say so myself (mom and knitter of socks). I’m not real good at correcting errors, thanks for showing the “good” side. The next pair for Suzanne is a self-striping, multi-colored yarn. The pair after that for her will be black and named Tucker after the llama (alpaca???) the yarn is from.

    One of the things that I love about handknit socks is that I can make them long and skinny for a perfect fit for my feet. They are such a luxury … enjoy!!
