On Nnenna's Needles #18

Tangled Up in Green
These are the second pair of socks that I've attempted to make.  The first pair fit fairly well, but they are very bulky and definitely more suited to the winter season.  These ones, however, are lighter and airyer (is that even a word?).  I especially love the open lacy part of the sock.



I don't know about you guys, but I'm one of those people who likes having their feet in socks most of the time.  Even in the dead of summer, when the temperature is well past 100 degrees in my hometown, I often wear socks to bed.  I didn't think that was weird until I talked to some of my roommates and discovered how much they dislike socks!  One roommate told me that every time she wears socks she feels like they are suffocating her feet!  So I'd love to know how you guys feel about socks....

Tell me: Do you love socks or hate them?

You make socks, too?!?!  I love 'em.  I'm picturing them in all sorts of shades of white and off-white for autumn.  You could SELL them, even.

I'm not in love with socks, but I'm a cold person, so I've come to like them because I always have to wear them.  Plus I seem to stub my toes a lot if I'm not wearing them.  Odd?

P.S.  I'm taking Anatomy & Physiology (which I'm coming to realize isn't very tough at all) and "Concepts and Principals of Health Information Management" this summer.  :|

you are sooo creative! these are gorgeous socks! I am more of a tights kind of gal, but in the winter I like to wear socks. when it's hotter, I get cranky and just throw them all over the place, cursing their warmth. hahaha.

Great job, Nnenna! I love the little pattern and the colour is wonderful. It's ages since I last made socks... I like making them, but not wearing them - but that's only because socks mean winter and no socks mean summer.

Ohh I like the colour and sweet pattern/type of stitch? along the top of the socks. I love socks especially in winter. I especially love bed socks; the kind that are a cross btw slippers and socks. Warm and cosy.

I can't wear socks while I sleep but even during the day, in the heat, I usually wear little half socks with my shoes - I can't stand bare, sweaty feet in the hot weather.

I love socks! I tend to wack loads of moisturiser on and then put on a big fat pair of socks overnight, which works wonders.
These look fab!

I love socks! I think they're best when they have bright colors or crazy patterns or are just pretty. Haha! What's the point of having a bunch of white socks? Hahaha! Although I like shoes that don't require socks most of the time. These are beautiful!
