Finis!

Another finished object! These are Sulafaye's Swirl Socks, modified over 60 sts. the yarn is Socks That Rock Lightweight in Highway 30. It's a lovely colourway which I was lucky enough to win over at Jill's a while ago. I love the classic lines of this sock, with a twist! They are actually the same length, the left sock must have been pushed down a little in the photo!




Have just finished weighing, braiding and labelling this lot, ready for Saturday's Guild meeting, and what's left will be up on Etsy nexy week.

That yarn looks way nicer knit than in the skein! I bought a colourway that I didn't love so I wouldn't be tempted to keep it!

Most Excellent Socks - I've just come across the talented Sulafaye on Ravelry myself...
And those braids are delicious and I don't know how you can bear to part with them - apart from to put bread on the table that is! I particularly like the ones on the left, bottom photo (she said, licking lips).

I have those socks in my queue! Great minds and all that!!

Jen said...

Those are beautiful. I've had to add these to my queue now. I think some of the yarn I dyed yesterday may work well for these.

Kath said...

I love the colours in your dyeing - wish I could say the same about my dyed roving. What method do you use for dyeing yours, they're most professional looking?
I wonder that you manage to sell them at all - I'd be itching to spin them all!!
