IT'S AN FO!!!!

In a whole two weeks I managed to knit the second half of a sock............. and thats it. But Hey it is an FO and something crossed off my list.
This is Lorna's Laces that I got in Portland last year. I can't say that I'm a big fan of the pooling that seems to happen with Lorna's. I'd much prefer some CLAUDIA'S :) Don't know that I'll buy this sock yarn again, unless I see a colourway that I looooove. The socks were knit with US 1's in the pattern Gentlemen's shooting sock from Nancy Bush's knitting vinatage socks.

You can see underneath my feet the new flooring in the basement. Moose has got a good start on it and hoepfully will have a good chunk more done when I get home from work tonight.
MUUUUUMMMMMM!!!!! WHAT IS ALL THAT BANGING??????? YOU KNOW HOW MUCH A HATE NOISE!!!!! THINK I'LL STAY HERE TILL ITS OVER!!!!!
The first snow of the season is over. Its still all here, after we had some freezing rain last night. I was gazing out the window this morning at the snow and ice on the trees, its sooo beautiful, THAT's what I love about snow, now if the coldness would leave it would be a perfect day!

Love the socks, it reminds me of this chocolate strawberry ice cream I used to eat when I was little.

The new flooring looks lovely!

Hi Canadian Sis! Stayed home sick from work today and enjoyed much tea. Thought about you lots and had to say hi.

Very nice looking floor. :)

Peg said...

Like both the new socks and the floor! Socks will learn to love it in time. Our dogs hate anything being changed in their world!~

Dave said...

Great colours in those socks, but I agree with you about Lorna's -- it's so predictably unpredictable! :-)

Shelley said...

I love your socks! The colours are so pretty, and I think the pooling gives it character. I've never used Lorna's or Claudia's.

Chris said...

Ok, I think those socks are gorgeous - and part of the reason is the spiraling/pooling. :D Glad you have Moose working away, making up for time off!!

Hi, Sockies! If you need a vacation, let us know. - Chaos & Mayhem

Awww! Poor little Sockies. I'm sure Daddy knows about paybacks, eh? hehe

Socks are socks - pooling or not. And they're hand knit. And they'll be keeping your feet warm. And the colors ARE pretty! Though I have to agree about pooling - sometimes it's okay but mostly I'd rather have something completely variegated with no repeats.

LOVE the new floor - it's going down FAST! :)

Cute socks! We all could use some sweet pink Shooting socks in our wardrobes!

And thank you so much for commenting on my Hederas! They're not so good for shooting in, but they're good for prancing about being fancy!

Congrats on your cute socks!
