Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Oh wow! That's a beautiful sock! Must admit that fair isle scares the beejeebers out of me...I've done intarsia and a tiny bit of fair isle on a baby sweater, but am afraid to commit to anything larger.

You are my hero! Hope the chest thing / allergies get better soon.

Hope you feel better soon. Those socks are amazing! Not only are they beautiful, but they must be so warm too!

Lovely socks, Bess Dear. And you've used some of my favourite colours -- all that pink and turquoise, sparked by the yellow! I must admit, I've never knit Fair Isle socks -- but I have plans for a pair in neutrals. It's just that I'm too busy with lace ones and cabled ones and 'plain vanilla' ones...

Fair Isle Socks!

Here they are .. or at least, here it is. My first... oh I just remembered. I once did a stranded colorwork pattern on a sock cuff. I used a plain wool, though, and eventually it felted to small to wear any more.

Anyway - here is the sock. The heel flap and it's join are very rough. I'm at the heel flap section right now on the second sock and I'll do a better job of that one. When I pick up socks again - later in the month.

I'm still not well yet and this is the beginning of the 4th week so I pushed my dr. to give me an appointment tomorrow early. We will have to find Something Else to deal with this awful chest thang. Hope there is New and Better Medicine for me tomorrow.
