Beautiful socks, Auburnchick! You almost . . . almost inspire me to make another pair of socks! Nyah, I stomped on the sock bug a while back cuz he just don't do much for me.

Socks and sandals sound like a recipe for cold feet to me--especially if I wore them in rainy weather and got my socks saturated. Well, they might be okay if I was wearing wool, but wool next to my skin itches like crazy.

Well, that's a first. I usually DO or DON'T inspire people!



This pattern was SO EASY that I highly recommend that you go for it!!

I've already cast on for my next pair...

Oh WOW. Those are so beautiful, and colorful, and interesting! I also appreciate your excellent modeling and photography! I don't know why I've never tried to knit a single solitary sock or mitten or gauntlet! Do I have fear of small items? I dunno. But I'm totally sockless, and feeling out-in-the cold!

You do such great work! And thanks for posting the photos!

Awww...thank you!!

I'm very proficient at knitting socks. Sweaters...not so much. Think I'm going to private message you for some help with a sweater I want to make before my summer ends...

Here in Lake Tahoe lots of folks do socks and sandals. Birkenstocks, too, but I guess they don't count.

Really? I thought it was just a Seattle and surrounding areas thing. Toe socks are for wearing with flip flops ya know.

Auburnchick's socks are so beautiful I'd have to wear them just at home with no shoes or sandals so I could admire them and take them off before they could get dirty. I like making socks but I'm simply not in the same league.
