Oh my..I love those socks too...but knitting is the one thing I've never managed to get the hang of :( I can do the stitches, no problem, even cable but for some reason I just could not get the hang of shaping anything :dontknow:

Very inspirational though...maybe I could give it another try...sometime :iconbiggrin:

Ah I do like to knit socks, because if I knit jumpers I get to the sleeves and lose the will :oops: -
I always start the pair together on one small circular needle each then the pair mostly (but not always) match :lol: sadly I've been making socks in bamboo yarn for family members who are wool allergic and although they're well received I find the yarn tedious for my fingers and much prefer handspun or other wool yarn with spring.

Your colourwork socks are magnificent :cheers: I've seen similar patterns on Garnstudio Drops site but know I'm rubbish at keeping the right tension so haven't dared try

Wow, those socks are FABULOUS! I wish I could knit socks, let alone pretty patterned socks. One day - I am currently grappling with a Sara Lund 'The Killing' tribute jumper.
