More Socks Finished

Okay, the Kermit socks have been done for a bit but I haven’t posted them. I hope their new owner likes them. They are pair #7 for the year.

Pair #8 is called My Hands are Purple socks. The yarn is also from Tess Designer Yarns. I think the color is Peach Melba. The water was purple instantly when they first hit the water. It took three washings and a soak with white vinegar before the water was pretty clear. There was only a slight tint of purple to the water after the vinegar rinse.

And yes, I did start a new pair of sock already. And see if you can guess the pattern. It is a very addictive pattern. And I love the yarn. And very strange for me, I am actually doing them top down.

    I already know what pattern it is, i was over to your Flickr page earlier. 😉

    So far, i’ve only made cuff down socks. I should branch out.

  3. Beautiful socks! Love the picot hem on the Kermits. BTW, I’m working on the cousins of your Tess socks — the “My hands are dark blue” socks. 🙂

  4. oooh Sooo pretty! I still haven’t started my first pair… I think that I have so many things in the works that if I were to start socks I’d probably instantly fall in love and the WIPs would just sit forever 😉

  5. The Kermit socks turned out lovely — so springlike. I’m sure their recipient adores them!
