A 'TENDER' FINISH

Stocking stuffer #2 is complete.  I grafted the second toe closed the other day on this pair of socks that I plan on putting in a stocking this Christmas  : )

I borrowed my daughter for the pictures because her legs have no freckles.......


the yarn is Kattikloo in Tender and is made here in B.C. on Salt Spring Island



It was lovely to work with


 During this last little road trip I picked up another luscious ball of sock yarn.  This one is Madelinetosh and the colour is Dahlia.  I'm knitting this pair for a friend


Congratulations to Fran. She won the two charm packs from the previous post and has been notified by e-mail.
Thanks to everyone who entered.

Great socks. What's wrong with freckles? I went to Woolfest last weekend and my goodness what a feast for the eyes and temptation for the purse fingers that was. If I start saving now I might be able to treat myself a bit more next year. Philippa xx

Love your sock pattern choice and the color is one of my favorites. Carla the pattern looks like a good one especially how they designed the heel.��

Socks are surprisingly tricky and time consuming to knit. You must be a power knitter.
Freckles are great! I think we need more of them.

Its always nice to have a variety of projects on the go. Are you on Ravelry? I have a profile but I only tend to go on when I'm searching for a project.

What gorgeous yarn you are using. I need to get back to knitting. My first attempt at knitting socks resulted in just one sock!

Teresa Connolly said...

Love the socks and colour the Delilah colour wool is gorgeous too. :)

I'm so impressed that you have not one, but TWO, stocking stuffers done! One day, I'll be able to claim that too... right?! ;-) (Doubtful since I'm still finishing something for my sister's birthday... which was in MAY.)
