WWW Sock Entry



Lighthouse socks are done and dusted, hip hip hooray. Not a sock I would repeat, don't get me wrong I love the pattern but I am a knitting perfectionist and therefore not 100% happy with how they turned out. As these are to be entered into THIS COMPETITION I did have plans of knitting a 3rd sock and entering the best two but I really could not face knitting another and as the competition stresses that the main thing is to have fun, I thought that was being a bit silly.

In our local newspaper there was an advertisement calling for stall holders for a market, being something we at the knitting coven ( CINDYS name for our knitting group) have mentioned that we would like to do from time to time, I rang and asked about the details. It is on our agenda to discuss on Tuesday, so if anybody has ever given this sort of thing a try and have any advice or ideas to pass on to us it would be appreciated. Plus what a great way to advertise to the public that knitting is not only for little old ladies.

Oh, what lovely socks they are - much better than one with trees I think!! You do have to pinch yourself sometimes to remind yourself 'this should be FUN!!' - I do!!

Though I know what it feels like to like a pattern but NEVER want to do it again! lol

I've never seen anything quite like these socks before- and I think they're fantastic. Lighthouses- luuurve them :) Very kitsch. Would be a very difficult pattern for me to follow- you've done them wonderfully!

The lighthouse socks are amazing! Bravo! I'm your stitch marker swap partner and I wanted to take a peek at your blog.

Yes, D.C. refers to the District of Columbia

They are just precious Sharon! I just love them! I'm also extremely jealous and envious as I cannot knit even nearly that well! You are my SOCK HERO!!!

Great job on these socks! A lot of work for sure. Wear them proudly... after the competition, of course.

Those socks look excellent, I see the sock festival has made it into the paper so hopefully there will be a good turn-out on the day to appreciate all these works of art!

What a fantastic job you did knitting these socks, Sharon! Hey, if I was there I'd toast your knitting skills (naturally, I'm assuming we'd be having a glass of something bubbly), right? :)

Lovely Socks! Was it fiddly to do?

Wow - they're fabulous. Although I can see why you won't be rushing back to make another pair! I think things like this should be framed or showcased. They are so unique!
