Friday FO: Socks!

I've been excited to show you some FO's! While we were Junebugging last month, I was also busy knitting socks!

The Seagull Socks in Schaefer Audrey, the Elizabeth Kubler-Ross colorway

and the Vertigo Socks in Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga in Figeater

I just couldn't show you, because none of them fit our Junebug Days colors. Why am I sitting around reknitting my own sock patterns? Well, first it started out as a photography project. My daughter Natalie is helping me freshen up the photos of all the Figheadh Sock designs. We're actually shooting them on real people--both socks, ya know, a pair, like we normally wear them. I'll admit to having knit a bunch of onesies when the patterns were originally released because it was just faster.

This reknitting project is not only lots of fun, because of working with such beautiful yarn, but I have also reworked every single pattern I've knit from. That means new pattern updates, so if any of you have bought any of the Figheadh sock patterns on Ravelry you will be receiving PDF updates soon (just one good reason to join Ravelry and to buy your patterns there). The patterns will have better (much better!) pictures and they'll make a lot more sense, too.

Next? Zigzag and Lace & Lattice. Onward!

I've always resisted the temptation to knit socks but this time I just may have to give in! Love the to Ravelry to have a look. Have a great weekend, my friend.

Thanks everyone! Yes, my sock designs, and boy are the patterns getting a once-over. Maybe a twice-over!
