Michelles Socks


Now that the lovely Michelle has received her socks I can post a photo of them. They were my part of the swap I did with Michelle and in return she designed the fabulous template for my new look blog. As she is a pink girl there was no question as to what colour to make them in.


It seems that I can't get enough of socks or sock yarn lately, here is the first of the Opal sock finished. I really do like this one and if they don't sell at the market, I will probably be keeping them for myself.

I have been drooling over Socks That Rock yarn and lamenting the fact that they don't ship outside of the US. Well Cindy has discovered The Knittery and they do some lovely hand dyed yarn, including 4ply sock yarn and they are Australian yippee!!!

I just ordered some sock yarn from The Knittery for my one skein pal. The merino is so soft, I got the orange blossom colourway which was lovely.

Both socks look lovely.

I might have to get some of that wool from the Knittery. They have lovely stuff. Though I might just make my own first and see..

And yes I did make that "She Who Smells Yarn" that is on my blog. I got bored and did it last night.

pretty pretty pretty sock..

Pink is the best, and even if I run into a pinkhater, I must love them anyway. It's the Universal Code of Pink Lovers to Love Anyway. Orange, too. What could be better ..well, maybe blue? But no.. Pink and orange rule. This is an almost Haiku.

The pink socks are awesome. I used to be militantly anti-pink but I have mellowed in my old age!

Oh, and I love the knittery! Lovely service as well as lovely yarn.

Looooooooovely socks.

I like the one that you've just finished.

I'm not a real pink girl myself.

Your socks are beautiful; I especially love the pink ones!

Hate to rub it in, but Socks That Rock really DO.

The red socks are very pretty.

Shelley said...

I love both of the socks! And your new blog template looks great too - she did a fabulous job!

Lovely socks Sharon, anyone would be lucky to receive these.

I love the Socks That Rock! I just want some pretty colours aside for the name alone. It sounds so cool!

The Knittery does have some lovely yarn, I am thinking of purchasing some, maybe not sock yarn but maybe because it would be a good ply for lace shawls and things.

Cool Socks!

Pretty Socks! I'm a member of the pink lovers group too.

Thank you for the post on The Knittery; I've bookmarked it. I live in the US but I'm always looking for Australian companies to purchase pretty yarn from! Live2Knit is also great -- my first package is en route from Katie and I can't wait!

I've just finished some orangeblossom socks from the Knittery too! Pictures on my blog. The wool is gorgeous to work with. Good service and cheap postage in Australia too.

I had a personal email from Toni at The Fold last year. She assured me that they definitely do post Socks that Rock overseas.

She's a member of Jeanie Townsend's group and posts regularly there.

I think postage might be dear. Exchange rate has also just gone down. Wasn't too bad there for a while.
