Here's my latest FO. I used this (http://www.spunmag.com/article/050605socks) pattern, which I must say was not my favorite. The toe on the first sock wound up too small, so I had to frog back. Being a somewhat experienced sock knitter, this pair had me :wall:. Go figure...on something so small!

Anyhow, I just love the yarn, and the fit turned out really good.

Thanks for looking! :muah:

Now, THERE'S a set of ankles that would have led 19th century men to faint! :) Nice job and I also like the colour.

:roflhard:

Hmmm...I wonder if my "History of the Old South" class will cover this?!

Good thing you can't tell that those are hairy ankles. I tend to take the weekends off from shaving since I dress up for work during the week. :teehee:

Ooh, they look really cute! It looks like a tiny little sock with a nice, tight fit - just like the socks I used to wear all the time before I knit so many :) Great work, as always!!!

Honestly, the fit is not overly tight. I don't know if it's the yarn or my skills. :teehee: The fit is just perfect!

Thanks so much for the nice words. The pictures really do not do justice to the color. They are really "girly." I highly recommend this yarn to anyone who wants to make something for a froo-froo gal.
