Hot Socks

I finished some hot socks!! The fiber is from Sleeping Dragon Yarns called Candy Apple. I use the Magic Loop method, toe up. They look like submarines but actually stretch out on my feet to fit and feel fabulous. Now I'm starting on a pair for my darling daughter-in-law using Crazy Zauberball fiber!! And yes, the color is just as crazy as the name. Pics later!!

Those are some bee-u-tiful socks Cari! I bought myself some ugly old wool ones the other day hoping they will keep my feet warm this winter. I'd much rather have yours though!!

Lovely! I need to learn how to knit socks. I have small feet -- it would be perfect if I could make my own. :D You sure are a woman of many talents!

Cari those socks are awesome ! I tried magic loop but kept forgetting what to do in between picking them up and laying them down for a month LOL - I'm a failure at knitting socks anyhow - I am finding some sucess with Wendy Knits "toe up" sock book - Wish you lived closer - I could teach you to hook and you could coach me in sock knitting LOL - Enjoy!
