Another Eyelet ZigZag Sock pattern.....

Here is another pair of socks I just completed.
I named them "Another Eyelet ZigZag Sock" because they are a take-off on my
Eyelet ZigZag socks.
To make these socks, I used my basic pattern using a chart for the 28 stitch pattern stitch.
The yarn is Opal sock yarn. I'm not real happy with the yarn. You pay a pretty good price for Opal yarn, and the color pattern matched pretty good until I got above the heel, and then it went all haywire from there.
There were also several knots in the yarn. If I'm going to pay that kind of price for yarn, I want to get good quality.
Oh well......No one sees the cuffs usually anyway, as my jeans cover them unless I'm sitting down. My feet show pretty good because of the Birkies I usually wear. :)
I'm still looking for clear Crocs to show off my socks. I have wide feet, so need something that comes in a wide size.

I do love making socks....and especially toe up socks!

White MiniDiamonds Toe-Up Socks finished

I completed the White MiniDiamonds Toe-Up Socks last week, but am just now getting around to uploading the picture of them. I have also uploaded the pattern for any of you who would like to have it. I really like these socks.
These socks are made with natural handspun 100% merino yarn that I spun.

I have a couple more pairs of socks on the needles right now, and hope to have them finished and uploaded by next week.

Mini Diamonds Toe Up Socks

I've been playing again.
This is my latest pattern.
Mini Diamonds Toe Up Socks
By Wilma, July 2009
Both of these socks are made with my handspun yarn, and is 100% Merino wool.
The blue/green was dyed before spinning. The cream was not dyed at all, but is the natural color of the wool.

I am leaving for a few days to go on a camping retreat with the Friday Morning bible study gals. I'm sure looking forward to it. I love those gals!! :) Terry will be on his own. I will leave Sassy with him.

We had company over the weekend. Terry's sister and her husband were here, and we sure enjoyed them. What a blessing they are.
