Happy Feet

In between jobs, stopping to have a moment with my new socks!

I had forgotten how good a pair of knit socks can feel!

It’s like a hug…FOR MY FEET!

These aren’t blocked yet. But, I’m wearing them anyway…because I can. :) They just feel so nice!

About a year ago, I bought a pair of shoes for the next time I would knit some socks for myself. Ta da!

Cute, huh?

Yeah, I am probably going to look like a kid with these on my feet. But, judging by how everyone assumes I’m an eighth grader, I figure my face kind of beat them to it anyway, lol.

Besides, a knitter has got to have her kicks, right? :)

  1. Those are so gorgeous! Incredibly well done – from start to finish. And those jelly shoes… I’ve seen them for sale at yarn shops, but I thought they’d look weird. They work though (and of course show off your socks)! Maybe I’ll actually get a pair.

    • Thanks Gwen Erin! That is exactly why I got these shoes!! I have had them for over a year though and never wore them because I never knit myself a pair…I found them when we moved back. So, I decided to remedy the lack of a pair of knit socks this year, lol! I suppose I will need to knit some more to justify buying the shoes at this point, ha ha!

  2. Confession: I hardly ever wear socks. Well, I hardly ever buy socks. My grandma buys me a pack of white socks every Christmas and occasionally I’ll throw in a pair of gray ankle socks for exercising. But with cute shoes like that, it makes wearing cool socks a must! Love your socks and shoes. Where did you find those by the way? (If I haven’t already given myself away, I hate shopping.)

  3. Those shoes are a sock-knitters dream! And who needs to block a sock anyway? I never do, I feel they get blocked on my feet while I wear them…

    Yes, you should have happy, proud feet to wear such wonderful socks…I got to get busy and knit more socks…and the shoes look fun and comfortable to wear! Hooray, Stacey!!! :)

  5. WOAH! See-through clogs! I love them. So cool … :mrgreen:

    You’re so fast in sock-knitting! For me, it always takes ages to do them … I usually need a couple of DVDs to finish mine. Well done! And you can tell from the pictures already that they’re really, really soft. :D

    • They feel so nice!! But I usually take about three days to complete socks. I think these were shorter because the yarn isn’t exactly sock yarn weight. These are cushy socks. Not exactly slippers. But not exactly socks that I would wear with loafers or anything like that either. They are really soft though!

  6. Yeah…I only bother with the blocking (for socks, at least) if they’re not for me. Otherwise, it’s straight from FO to feet.
    Your new socks are fantastic! So bright and happy. Yay!

  7. Love, love, love those socks! There’s nothing in the world as comfy as hand knit socks. :-)
