Swimming in a sea of socks

If socks were food I'd be eating pretty well at the moment.

For entree we'd have some freshly frogged pomatomus. Whilst one may prefer them in a more advanced phase, sometimes they are much sweeter after a trip to the frog pond*. There's always the chance that they'll spontaneously multiply, which is a real treat. The subtle tonal striping forms the signature mark of this dish.


For mains we'd have some charming Baudelaire. The sophisticated colour compliments the difficulty with which the dish is prepared. The standout feature the utilisation of the Turkish cast on, a brilliant device that isn't half as complicated as one may first think.



For desert one could not go past the jitterbug jewel, which has now become the embryonic stages of badcaul. Oh come on! All the cool kids are doing it.


I need some knitting viagra so I can actually finish the job on some of this stuff.

You are a sock knitting machine!! I think that picture has re-ignited my love for baudelaire! Must knit those soon!

Oh & I'm a cool kid!?!? Good to know!

Badcaul is the best! I think it's my favorite sock pattern EVA! ;)

Mm mm good...that's what your socks are. Such delish colors.

Well hello gate crasher - I'm so glad you did by the way. I've got hand knit sock envy happening. Must get my arse in to gear....

Pomatomus looked ace, but I too hate it when colour pooling plays that way. Must look in to two socks at a time on circs. I'm a notorious second sock syndrome sufferer. And you lass are in jeopardy of being accused of being ADC...

that green sock yarn you are using is so, so gorgeous - one of the best greens i've seen in a long time!

Nora said...

Great post - what yarn are using for the Poms?

Coleen said...

love the baudelaire sock - wow that's pretty! I haven't tried that pattern yet. Will definitely put it on my list! As for the Pomatomus... if you finish yours, I'll have to finish mine. And mine's been on the needles for oh... about forever!

Dipsy said...

The Baudelaire is absolutely beautiful - great yarn choice. I must try knitting two at once to avoid second sock syndrome.
