Ta Da

Finished.... a small feet for most of you but it was a never ending project. First of all, we had the SSS thing. Then we had the fact that they were KNEE socks, so they went on and on. I finished them though and didn't know if I would ever go down the sock road again, until ...I saw these..... Are they too cute or what???? They are Sox Stix by Lantern Moon.They come in different types of wood (Rosewood, Ebony, Blondewood) and sizes. I had to choose the ones with the cutest bags.....not really.
It is a chilly damp night here in the Northeast. I made a pot of Chili and we are in for a big Friday night....

Oh, that chili sounds fabulous! They turned the heat off here at work, and I have been FREEZING all day (also in the Northeast).

Your socks are so pretty - they also making me think of warmth. Love the little sock needles. Have a great weekend!

I thought those lantern moons were so cute too and I love lantern moon needles but now I'm a magic loop convert. Beautiful job on the socks! Knee highs? That would send me over the edge.

Love chili - thanks for the recipe!

So are those socks from the neapolitan yarn that I just saw on knot another hat? They are brilliant. Great job.

Love the socks! Your sis got me wanting to do those, so I'm just part-way up the foot (doing toe-up for maximum height). Way to go!

Those are great socks! The chili recipe sounds yummy. Chili is on my list of favourite winter meals I'll have to give it a try.
