Crazy Eights!

Yes, there were neighbors driving by. Yes, I was in a skirt. Yes, I fell over.

Please be aware of how willing I am to embarrass myself to bring you a shot of these socks. They were too green to show up against the foliage, so sky shot it was.

But it was all worth it.
Here’s a close up of why I am calling them Crazy Eights. I did a simple ribbing around back, and they are pretty snappy if I do say so myself. Very comfortable, and they give full cankle coverage.

I am going to try to get an action shot in the next few days. It is Biketoberfest here in Daytona. It is a lesser event than the renowned Socktoberfest, but since I am here I thought I’d try to do a bit of spot reporting and bring the two events together.

I'll try to write up the pattern in the next few days if anyone is interested. That is assuming Wilma stays away (fingers crossed).

In other knitting news I am almost done with the preschool cardigan. I have loved this project, but am so ready to be done. It is my first bit of in-the-round and I am a bit puzzled over how to block it. I had to frog a bi today on the hood…too pointy. Should be done by tomorrow.

Your sock is FABULOUS!!! I love the cables and ribbing and it looks like such a great fit. I'd be VERY interested in a pattern- so talented! :-) The preschool cardigan looks great, too. I really like the color and cabling on that one.

BTW, I find shorts to be much less humiliating than skirts when flipping over backwards to get good sock shots. :-) I've been worriedly watching the news coverage on Wilma- stay safe.

Socks and preschool cardigan look great! I would be interested in the pattern, too. I've never knitted socks before. Hope Wilma skips you - stay safe!

Awesome socks! I want the details! Great chart, too, BTW!

Oh, I want the pattern (waves hand in air wildly) those socks are so cute. I do appreciate the lengths you are willing to go for us. =D

Really great sock! I love your foot in the air, too. Cables are so much fun.

Ditto on the creative sock pattern. What weight yarn? I'm another one who'd love the pattern. Hope all is well in your part of relativesin Boca their pretty much lost lots and lots of trees, etc.
