Sockapalooza 4: They Have Arrived


My very own hand knit socks. Edwina knit me these lovely socks that fit PERFECTLY!! These arrived all the way from England! She did a lovely fair isle pattern to celebrate her Scottish Heritage. She also sent along some wonderful foot scrub and pictures of where she is from!

Edwina - I love these socks and I look forward to showing them off! This experience was a lot of fun. Thank you for the time, energy, and care you put into these gorgeous socks.

Here is a close up of the pattern that is repeated along the tow as well.

Knitting Update: I am almost to the lace pattern on the front of Isabella. I hope to finish it soon and then onto Jason's 2nd sock and finally to my XMAS knitting.

Those are so nice! I love the matching bands of fair isle. That can't be easy to do in a sock, that's for sure. Hope you are well!
