  1. They're all pretty! I think the pattern on your yellow ones is similar to the pink socks Gaylen sent me a while back. I'll bet your SIL was delighted with the ones you gave her.

    Isn't it nice to be able to post progress pictures?

  2. Terrific socks! I'm afraid I'm behind in sock knitting this year in lieu of a sweater/shrug thingie!

  3. Great looking socks! I like the colors of all three pairs.

    We are very anxious for our little fella to arrive :) I was very lucky and fought all the prints at Fabricville. Do you live near the Fabricville in Montreal? It must be so much bigger than ours. We never made it to Montreal last summer but maybe this summer and I will certainly make time for a fabric store shopping day :))))

  4. Oh what lovely socks. Look at you go. I love the top pair. That's an "eye of partridge" heel, where the slipped stitches are offset.

    I wanna see your swift! g


Thanks for talking to me - I love comments !
