Socks on Parade, Part Two!

Two more socks for you my Knitbloglandia buds!

First up -

Christmas in February Socks

Last year during our entrelac challenge over at SKA I knit these

My partner in crime fellow mod Bettina went so crazy for them that I promised to knit her a pair which I sent to Germany for Christmas in February!


Pattern: Annetrelac Socks

Yarn: Schaefer Heather in the Cranberry Kiss colorway ( I ♥ ♥ ♥ this yarn!!)

Needles: US #1 (2.25mm) and US #0 (2.0mm) 32" addi turbo circs, magic loop method

It's a super easy pattern that looks much harder than it is! I used a little bit heavier yarn than the pattern suggested so I made a ton of mods - all deets on on my Rav page (link above).

Bettina loved them and they are a perfect fit, see.....? (actual Bettina feet, woo hoo!)

And now for something completely different I give you....more socks!

Juicy Mystery Socks


Pattern: March Mystery Sock by Kristi Schueler of Designedly Kristi fame

Yarn: Sereknity Yarn and Fiber Sock Options Shimmer Merino & Bamboo in the Seriously Citrus colorway - Again LOVE!!!! (as an aside, I am completely enamored of bamboo blend sock yarn - it's so smooth and cool on the needles and the feet!)

Needles: US# 1 (2.25mm) Hiya Hiya 32" circs, magic loop method.

This was a very interesting and fun Mystery Sock with a cool Cast On/Bind off. We started the sock on waste yarn and added a knitted on I-cord after the whole sock was completed! A new and interesting construction from one of my favorite designers and bloggers, BUT IT STILL NEEDS A NAME KRISTI!! :)

Thus ends this week's installment of "Socks FKD has been too lazy too post". The parade continues next week :)

But WAIT!!

A certain handsome kitteh boy has a BIRTHDAY this week!

My P-Man turns FIVE next Friday!!

Happy Birthday baby boy!

There isn't a sweeter lil chubler kitteh than you!

See ya next week! :)

LOVE the socks! I've already got them faved in my library. You're a real inspiration with your colors. Happy b'day to your fuzzy baby!

Monika said...

Love both your socks! Happy Birthday P-man!

Sharlene said...

If the dates are right I think we share a birthday, LOL!

Happy Birthday, P Man. Two of my meezers will be 5 this fall: Torrie in September, and Casper in October. 2004 was a good year!

Nana Sadie said...

While your socks are truly superb? That Happy Birthday Boy is the best!!!
Happy birthday P-Man!!

Mychawd said...

Happy Meow Birth Meow Day Meow! Please pass that along to P-man from my kids.
Love the Annetrelac Socks. I immediately qeued them.

Charlie turned 5 and Sannybug turned 13 in June :-) Bligh and KooKooNut will be 2 in October. All my kitties send headbutts and purrs for the P-Man's Birthday!

I'm always so impressed with your socks and knitting skills...cheryl

La Cabeza Grande said...

Pumpkin looks so...sophisticated and upper-crust. Happy 5th!

As for the socks, I think Juicy is the perfect name for them. What a delight!

KSee said...

Luv both socks but your choice of yarn really makes them POP!
P-man 5! Happy Birthday.

Rhonda the Stitchingnut said...

Love the socks of course! But I need to say "Happy Birthday!" to the P-man.

Norma said...

MY birthday is the 18th, and Mr. Jefferies' is the 20th! Great month for birthdays, Mr. P-Man! Happy birthday!

BTW, Deb, I am having the worst luck sending you 4-leaf clovers. Every time I save one, it either doesn't dry correctly or ... someone who shares this house with me... AHEM... throws it away. For PETE'S SAKE!!!!

Romi said...

Oooh! Pretty!! Happy belated birthday to your fur-baby. :)

Susanne said...

""The parade continues next week""
Now that is what you said a month ago...c'mon...let's see some more!!!

Wow, that second pair of socks is simply gorgeous! I have trouble with patience and knitting socks with fingering weight yarn... especially when they have fancy patterns!

BTW, found your site via!

Hunter said...

Missing you.



Anonymous said...

Don't tell my two kitties, but I have P-Man envy! Happy birthday to his highness.

Krystal said...

Hey, I just wanted to tell you that I saw the new laptop backs from dell... they're OPI colors, and I laughed when I thought of you. :) How's it going?

Agnes said...

Hey! Looks like you've also taken quite a long break from your blog ... me too! Got sucked in by those addictive Facebook games. Now I am finally able to draw myself away from them better, I started blogging again. Though I think I would not be posting that frequently as before.
I love that Juicy Mystery Socks ... maybe it's the colour (some citrus lemon yellow) or the word "juicy" ... I literally drooled over the picture! LOL!
So P-Man is a big boy now! Haven't sent him kisses for a long time ... I hope he still remembers me ... LOL!
Well, wish you two a wonderful 2010 and Happy Knitting, as always.

Lynn said...

Love the socks!

Alabama Knitter said...

OMG I love the socks. Can't wait until I can master socks!

Stacey said...

Hi Deb,
Sorry this doesn't have anything to do with your cool socks. I came over to your blog from another. You commented that you love KnitPicks Shine yarn. I just bought up a bunch, because I love the feel and color of the yellow ("butter") yarn, but found the pattern I was using, which called for size 9 needles on a DK weight yarn (I used shine sport), didn't work well with the denseness and sleekness of shine. Do you have any suggestions on the type of pattern that would work well for this yarn? I kinda hate to go down to too small needle sizes, because I'm desperately trying to make a requested "yellow, soft and squishy" baby blanket for a friend. Seems the smaller needles make it really dense and thin. I'm getting so frustrated. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! Thanks.
