FO Friday: Something old, something new, something black, and something blue


The swelling on my rolled ankle went down enough today for me to be able to put on my newest FO: Cherenkov Radiation Socks. Sadly, I could only pose for one quick picture, then I figured it would be for the best to put them on the sock blockers. (If the SO saw me on my feet, I'd be in BIG trouble ;-)  )
Can you tell which ankle is swollen?

I'm quite proud of how well they match.  If you're looking for super fun self-striping yarn, I completely recommend String Theory Colorworks. Luckily, they stock on Fridays sometime between 9 am and 1 pm central time, so you might just catch something there. I'm still trying to nab my favorite from them: Electron.


Todays prompt in A Month of Craft Photos is "An Old FO". I chose my first pair of completed intricate socks that I knit almost two years ago. I believe the pattern is Wanida by Cookie A. knit in Imagination yarn by Knitpicks in the colorway Lullaby. These were made long before I understood how to alter patterns to fit over my heel better, so I wasn't even going to attempt to get these on with the swollen ankle. I still tried to be a bit artsy with the photo.


Oh, and Tippy wanted to make sure she said "Hello" to everyone! For more beautiful finished objects, make sure to check out Tamis Amis. And for more in A Month of Craft Photos, please do check out all the gorgeous photography in the Flickr group.

    1. I made these by memory. They're just a standard 2x2 ribbing with a heel flap. I figured something simple would show off the yarn best. :)

  15. Ouch, sorry about your ankle---but at least you have two pairs of jalksdfj beyond amazing socks to wrap it in? Seriously, what gorgeous knitting. I'm especially in love with the striped pair, the colours are fabulous and they're so bold and simple and perfect. And closing with an adorable puppy picture? Always appreciated. :D
