Snow shots

 

*My second sock finish of 2018.  My first Olympic Finish.  I stuffed them with snow.

Franklin Habit held a class that I took, once, and he said you could add interest by stuffing.  I think they look like they are going for a walk !  By the way I was freezing my hands off getting the shot.  And I do have size 6 feet.  The knit gods must have known I’d love to knit socks and gave me fat little brick feet.

The details:
Pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the

ONLINE Merina Extra fine wool blend superwash TONAL SOCK yarn in blue.  16.99 (DANGER: this yarn is available on AMAZON With 2 day delivery, in several shades)

64 stitches on size 1’s. Nothin fancy.  Ribbed the whole cuff for negative ease.

********

The horses are extra stunning in fresh snow.  And speaking of animals, I’m conflicted.  Westminster Dog show starts tonight AND we have Olympic coverage.   I filled out my dog bracket.  It is a thing this year that is promoted by Purina Pro Plan.  I picked the dogs the judges would pick, not the dogs I’d pick.  Let’s see how I do!

  1. Nice finish! Those horses must be tough! They don’t even seem to be shivering and make me cold just looking at them. I’ve been enjoying the Olympics, especially the ice skating; it looks pretty cold there,too!

  3. Love those socks in the snow! The people I knit socks for? All big feet. My kids have normal feet sizes 8-9 except Jamie. Jamie is a 13. Ouch! I wish I had some size 6’s to knit for. 🙂
    The horse photo is gorgeous. I think I would go for the dogs tonight. You still have lots of Olympics left to watch and you can always go online later too and watch them.
    Blessings,

  4. Oh, the horses look amazing with their winter coats!
    Cute socks, and yes they do look like they are walking.
    I was thinking of you yesterday and wondering if you guys are buried in snow. You probably got more than we did from that last go-round. Hope you’re staying warm! 🙂

  5. Bravo on your socks and fun that you stuffed them with snow. I made a little puffed heart yesterday and couldn’t find my bag of stuffing so I had to use dog toy stuffing of a toy that Meeka had just gutted. LOL! Love the nice healthy horses. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂
