Edelweiss, Edelweiss



It took me almost a full year to get this pair of socks done, but done they are! When I saw this pair of socks in the Fall 2006 issue of Vogue Knitting, I knew I had to knit them. They are knit with Regia 4-fadig in black/red/natural. I worked on the second sock all week and finally they are a pair. It is supposed to be a lot cooler this week (after Tuesday), I can't wait to wear all my new socks. This is pair 28 for the year (that ties my count for last year) so the rest will be bonus.


Barbara, at Romancing the Yarn is giving away a skein of sock yarn every day this month, she calls it sockyarnapoolza. She drew my name on the 3rd and this is what she sent me: Trekking XXL 181. The flash is messing with the colors, this yarn is so pretty. And I've already put it on some needles, I'm knitting the Cedar Creek pattern from Blue Moon Fiber Arts (Socks that Rock). It is looking very nice indeed! I will post a picture as soon as I'm further on it. Have a great Sunday. More later!

Excuse me, those socks look like they are about an inch too short for the intended wearer :) They are beautiful.
I like your new yarn.

Those are great socks!! 28 + 28 is 56 pairs of socks in two years. My goodness, where do you store them all?? I have extra room in my sock drawer ;-) (But I am making progress....)

Love the socks! I love the song as well, and have it stuck in my head...which is fine because just prior to that I had he Oompa Loompa song from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original from the 70s) in my head...lol.

Those are great socks, and I'd actually be able to find them in my house. Must remember brightly colored toes as a solution to Lost Sock Syndrome.

Yay, lots of socks!
