Got myself a treat

I finally gave in and bought myself a special little treat: Sock Blockers - Leggy Creations.
Becky made these especially for me.
Didn't she do a nice job? !

Want to see the back? - yeah, I know you do :-)

Hop on over and give her a shout of praise - better yet, order some up for yourself! I had her make these nice and long in the leg part for me............... there might just be some knee socks in my future.

And on the Christmas knitting front, I finished another pair of socks. These are being modeled (ever so briefly) by K, and now are off into the wash, and being blocked. (He wasn't so sure he wanted to take them off, but I convinced him)
Colorway: Ain't No Mountain High Enough
size 1 needles
2 skeins
Pattern: Madder Rib by Nancy Bush

and now it's back off to more knitting and fiber dyeing for me. Have a lovely weekend.

What fun sock blockers!

Those are some wild socks for K to model, somehow I haven't visualized him as a wearer of pink!

Enjoy the sun. :-)

Custom blockers! That is so cool.

The socks look great. Good color progressions.

Great socks. I'd be with K on this one: not taking them off the feet, uh uh.

Which Nancy Bush book for the pattern?

Cute sock blockers. Nice socks as well. I hope you have yourselves dug out after the storms....

Lovely, lovely socks! I just adore that color! I can see why K didn't want to take them off.

Your sock blockers look great too!

Aren't Becky's sock blockers awesome! I love yours!

Beautiful socks! I have seen the madder rib on a few different blogs. I have to try that pattern because I really like it!

How great are those!! They look nice and long to block out a pair of knee highs!

I'm just about done with my Madder Ribs too!
