I'm so excited! I've made worsted weight Thuja socks for dh before but never sock weight socks.

Very nice! I really like the pattern, and your choice of color. You have very good taste, I can tell because I'm waiting for delivery of a sofa of almost that very same color.:yay:

Thank you everyone!

I dyed this yarn myself to get that color - I'm really happy with it. Dh picked it.

Then they are even more special. You did a fantastic dye job. I just LOVE that colour. Red is my all time favourite. Way to go! Keep up the great work!

Great socks! Sockweight is so much finer than worsted weight and they make socks so much more special. Love the colour too- how did you do that???

The sock is lovely and a great clour...Socks are much nicer knitted in finer yarn x

Lovely color, and nice work on the socks. It looks like these may be for you instead of DH. :-)
