It's so sweet of you to think of us. Thanks for the lovely pattern. They'll go into the SOS pile I think.

ChelleC said...

Thanks ever so much for the pattern. You are extremely sweet AND talented. And since I listed your blog as one of my top 4 favorites over in a Ravelry topic called, "Off the Radar Blogs" - I don't know how off the radar you are, because I've been reading you for YEARS, but you certainly deserve the mention.

Carole Knits said...

Those are beautiful! Thank you for the free pattern!

Monika said...

The socks are lovely! I've never done beading, and I've never done a garter heel. Maybe soon. Thanks for the pattern!

Leslie said...

Thanks for the pattern, Deb. I've actually gotten over my sock phobia so maybe I'll try these and get over the beading thing :)).

Please tell P-man that he looks so.darn.handsome on that coverlet. But I'm sure he already knows it.

monica said...

Jacki said...

Hooray for free patterns! The heel flap looks so cool, I'm going to have to give this a go, once I figure out what yarn to use... :)

Lorette said...

Thanks! That is very pretty yarn, ma'am.

And we knew that you really loved us! :-)

The socks are classic FKD: beautiful! I still have a hankering for the coverlet that cutie pie, P-man, is lounging on too.

Lynne said...

Pretty pretty! And I'll tell you what, seeing P-Man in the beefsteak pose (on the bed!) is just such eye-candy!

Ah, that pattern even has BEADS? Cool!!!! This is a really pretty sock and will help me get over my aversion to knitting ugly ill-fitting sweaters. Ha!

Thank you for the lovely pattern - a nice bonus; I had come by to say that I have just successfully completed my first beaded project (a swallowtail shawl) using your instructions for the crochet method. Thank you for those!
