Socks Rock



I love knitting socks! But what I love more than that is wearing them!

This is my summer sock, just a little shortie made of 100% cotton. Love the colors and love the way it feel wearing them with my colorful Crocks.

I have now knit about 5 pairs so I'm getting better handling the "sticks"



I like to use 5 little 5" needles. I got a new set:



Knitting is not a cheap hobby, two sets of needles and two balls of cotton yarn.

Yikes!!! $50 bucks for needles and some cotton yarn! Where did you buy everything, Tiffany's?

Love the lime green Crocs with the faboo stripey socks. I just bought some Croc Thong / Sandals at Analwalt Lumber on Pico & Sepulveda. They are so comfortable.

WOWza those are some pricey socks! LOL

But the thing I am most awed and stunned about... how did you make socks with no little holes around the ankle part where the shaping starts? Your socks are PERFECT looking. Amazing.

Love your socks! Now I know what to do with the Crazy cotton I bought on sale a few months ago, 1/2 price (rubbing it in...) I've been afraid to knit 100% cotton in socks, afraid of bagging.
