It’s funny how much emotion we can convey in body language, even in our feet. To me, the toes above, and the following picture look like shy feet. It seems so weird to think that feet convey shyness or timidity, but I think they do. And I guess I think that’s cute. I can’t think of a way of positioning hands that would have a shy-looking effect, so maybe this is exclusive to the feet. Maybe I’m a nutter to be thinking about this. Who knows. I’m pretty fascinated by human behavior.
I finished these socks last year (so this tells you how good I am about posting FOs…). The yarn is Colinette Jitterbug, one of my FAVORITE and very drool worthy sock yarns. It’s as squooshy as Koigu and the colors are amazing in either the almost solids or the multi colors. We just got a bunch in at Hand Held so I *had* to get more. We got some of the Wasabi Squeeze color and I snatched it up. I have made at least 3 pairs of socks from Colinette and it is nice on the hands and stimulating to the eyes. I was surprised at how even most of the stripes on this pair knit up. They call this color Ischia, and I love it.
This is my usual recipe for socks: toe up, two at a time, magic loop. If you live in Northwest Arkansas and want to learn, you can sign up for a class here. I used up all of the yarn down to a few yards on these, so they’re nice and tall. I purled the toes and gussets just for fun. You can see that better in this pic.
We just got some Madeline Tosh Sock too. I think I squealed and immediately snatched up the Twig color for some future pair of amazing socks. Sock love is back.
