Wollmeise Socks

Wollmeise socks designed by Monica Jines. Pattern can be found compliments of Sheri at The Loopy Ewe.
These socks were knitted from the toe up with a waste yarn cast on. A Close Up The Yarn is Mountain Colors Bearfoot and the colour is Meadow Colour of the fullsize socks is more accurate Photos can be enlarged. I just love bearfoot which is a wool/mohair combination. They feel so nice and warm on my feet.
Now Confession time. The ones above have been finished for a little while I had just not finished sewing the threads in or photographed.
The sock below is at the moment only one sock. I have another pair of socks tempting me and I need to hurry up and cast on sock 2 so that I am at least at the beginning.
Pattern is Nancy Bush’s Copper Penny Socks from Knitting Socks with Hand-Painted Yarns and the yarn is Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in Sandstone. I just love the stitch definition this yarn gives. The yarn was won from the Mountain colours blog so that I could test knit.
This sock was knit from the toe up using Judy’s Magic cast on. I am a convert. Much prefer to knit from the toe up. This sock is a little long but as I had already frogged  back down to the toe once because I did not like the way the yarn was knitting up in one pattern I was not going to undo again!
Tonight I made Anne’s Scottish Parkin and it is yummy. Treacle rich and oaty. Perfect Winter treat with coffee. Holiday Monday tomorrow :-)  Have a great Quilty or Knitty Day All   Cheers Lynne

Gorgeous knitting Lynne hon, I love both the yarn colours. I knit sometimes, but quilting and piecing always bully their way into the front of the queue.

You did it again. I am off to a great yarn shop in NY tomorrow and I was planning on "just looking." I know I'll be buying more yarn now.

These are so wonderful! Sure wish I knew how to knit. Just not enough hands and eyes to do it all~
Your quilt on your header is AMAZING! You have inspired me so much by visiting...
