Socks are for feet.

Olympic Knitting 2006

So I had one of those moments today. Those moments when you think to yourself, "Those socks sitting on my shelf are very nice, but hey! Socks are made to go on feet! I could wear them!" Um, yeah. My Olympic socks. I've been admiring them plenty, but I realized that I hadn't actually worn them yet. But I was seeing a long-distance knitting friend today so I decided it was the perfect day to try them out.

Before I went out, I asked my roommate to take a few pictures, so here you go! See? I told you they weren't as ugly as the last picture made them look!

Tonight I am determined to finish Branching Out and start Clapotis. Wish me luck!

Hardly ugly! Those are some very fine socks. Luck!

Not ugly at all! Those are lovely! :)
I'd like something like that to keep my feet warm tonight. :)

Pretty socks!


Finish any books? Start any more? I loved Mrs. Pollifax. I should dig out my old copy and re-read it.

And, in reference to a really old post of yours, Jeff Buckley does the best rendition of Hallelujah, including Leonard Cohen's. I can't help that LC wrote it.

Those are lovely - the cables look great.

I think they are beautiful!

Those socks are fabulous - the yarn is just variegated enough to compliment the cables and not obscure them. Great work!

You're going to love knitting Clapotis. The pattern is mesmerizingly rhythmic. The number geeky part of me is really fond of it as well.

Lots of luck finishing up your Branching Out and starting Clapotis! (As a fellow knitter w/ a B.O. on the needles for quite awhile, I'm especially in awe of your impending FO.)
