Knee Socks: Sunset on the Lake Indeed!

I am happy to present my new knee socks fresh off the needles! Well, mostly fresh  . . . . I did take them for a walk already and they were perfect. They stayed up; they were warm; they were soft and comfortable. Yes.

    Ooh how lovely! I’m not sure I’d have the patience for knee-highs. I wish I did though! Those really are gorgeous, wow!

    • Thanks so much, Katherine! I wasn’t sure either . . . but they are my favorite (and only) kind of sock for winter, so it’s lovely to have at least one homemade pair. Hopefully others will *slowly* follow 🙂

    How did you manage to take them off? I confess wearing my new socks for a few days in a row at the beginning of their lifespan.

    • Ha! So I am not alone! I took them off just to put them on the blockers for the photo . . . now, get back on my feet!! I really never believed all the hype about handmade socks until I slipped on my first pair. It’s hard to go back.

  8. Nice! I’m not surprised you were reluctant to take these off… They look so cosy! Great colours, too 😀
