Custom Wedding Socks

Received a request from a woman in TX for a pair of socks for her wedding. She wanted her new name to be on the cuffs of the pictured are the cuffs. I have to knit these in the next 4 days to get them to her in time. They are a lace sock with yellow hearts on the heels. She is wearing them in boots but taking the boots off as a surprise  after the ceremony. Not a bad idea but wish I had more time to work on them. As it is the works are just block letters and really could be more fancy if I had the time to design them....oh well, I think they will be a fun pair for a wedding.

Cuffs with names.....hmmmmm

March Blahs

So Wednesday, March 20 is the first day of Spring and around my part of the world it feels like the dead of winter with today a looming snow storm knocking at our front door this evening. I am feeling the March Blahs....and trying to get excited about the coming spring and summer but today it really is a bummer. However....I have started another sock. This one is called the Chain Link Cable with Rib. It will be a man's size sock with a Cable chain running down the sides and ribs throughout. I think it will be a great sock as it will not sag but cling to the ankle and foot. Knitting them in a Lorna Laces variegated yarn but probably will look better in a solid. Might try to do a pattern with these and just post it as a free sock pattern. That might be a good thing. Still looking for sun today but am getting a little more smiley at the prospect of sitting down soon and knitting these socks. First I have chores and errands to run!
