Sock Trade!

Guess what I got in the mail this weekend? My new socks from Suzie!

These are fun 'wear around the house' socks - which Suzie is right - something I don't have. They fit just right! And, she also sent me a skein of Opal... which was a nice surprise.

Here are the ones I knit her:

Since I know she has them, I can FINALLY talk about them!
Specs: Child's First Sock, from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Lorna's Lace's
Needles: Size 0 Pony Pearls.

I picked this pattern because they were for a small woman's foot - so I knew I would never make them for my size 10s. I'm hoping Suzie will post a picture of her wearing them soon, so I know they fit (hint, hint).

Update: She did post! And they do fit!

The weather was so beautiful this weekend, I spend a lot of time outside... went on a walk both days, and planted some pansies in the yard. Nice to finally get some color back!



Both socks are really nice, the colours suit each pattern


Whoo-hoo! So glad yours fit too! They look good on your tootsies!!! I love mine. Thanks so much. Good God, size 0 needles? I should have sent you another skein of Opal just for using those itty bitty needles. I used 8's!!!


Wow both sets of socks are great!


Lovely blue socks! Congrats!


Two nice pairs of socks! Love those cables, and the blue socks are nice and bright!
