Voila!

All good secrets bring joy when revelealed! My knitting group had a secret feet sock exchange that had all good thing: enough weeks to knit a pair of socks, a small group of skilled, enthusiastic knitters who (for the most part) knew each other, a beautiful day to reveal their work, and overjoyed recipients. All of us sat in anxiety hoping that our labor would be looked upon favorably by our giftees, which just shows how much we care about our knitting, creativity, and generosity. I think these socks also show how creative and colorful knitters we all are and how highly we think of everyone else's creativity and skill!

DETAILS! I WANT DETAILS! Well, I don't have details for all those delicious socks, but I can do two of the pairs.

My secret feet received:
Pattern: Pomatomous Socks

Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Yarn in the colorway "Life's a Beach" (I love that!)

Yarn enabler: Simply Sock Yarn Company

Time I could have spent knitting in public: Two weeks.


This was my second go at Pomatomous, and I want to reassure everyone that these are not as difficult as they may seem. The pattern flows easily, though is a little fiddly when you get to the feet. It was a good knit with lovely, sqoooushy yarn.

I GOT I GOT I GOT!

Aren't these GREAT! My knitter extraordinaire gifted me with my very first Socks that Rock Socks! They're in the medium-weight yarn, and I love the colors-that red shooting through the colors is so so cool. I'm guessing that the colorway is Foofaraw, but I'm not sure. I think she said they're a pattern from Son of Sensational Socks (or whatever it's called). I begin to understand Socks that Rock obsession...

It was a GREAT exchange for the reasons you listed. How cool that your socks for Chanin matched her outfit perfectly?

Thanks for the inspiration - I have almost a foot done on my toe-up Pomatomus!

I'm glad you liked them. I'm going to see if I can find the ball band for you but I believe that colorway is called Chanticleer. Tomo's been bitten by the Pomatomus bug also.
