« 5 Questions | Main | Which Wensleydale? »

April 10, 2007



So pretty! Did you spin the Wensleydale too? I have some Wensleydale in my stash. Am I the only one who wants to say "Get the cheeeese, Gromit!" every time I say Wensleydale?


Thanks for the lovely Blogiversary gift Maia -- I knew what I would find when I surfed over but I never expected such fanfare ::blush:: When I make the socks I'll always think of you!

I love your new sock!! The yarn is glorious and the pattern, altho completely simple, gives the sock some real panache! Did you see my pair on the blog? Frankly I think they are my prettiest socks EVER!

Thanks again for making the blogiversay extra special! :)


BTW, did you ever try the Turkish Cast on?


I can't believe someone wrote a wikipedia entry on Irish Spring. Nice socks, I'll have to give them a try! I hope you're feeling better.


I like the banana sock. That yarn is gorgeous, too. Dangit, I couldn't dye mine like that.
I'll just send you some fiber and you dye it for me, 'kay?



That's an extremely pretty sock. I wish I was faster at knitting the things than I am though. There's already dozens of patterns that I want to make (out of the far too many skeins of sock yarn I've accumulated since finding blogs) when I finish the current socks. This pattern is going to be one of the next three pairs made I think.


What a pretty sock pattern! I'm planning for some vacation knitting so I'm going to have to put this one in the hat to consider!


Lovely sock, Maia, and you really ROCK for providing a free pattern for it.

And because I'm greedy, I will wish that the "Design a Lace Sock" tutorial was also a pdf file.... :-)

Maia, I really want to knit myself some Penny socks but have only fingering weight, no sport weight. To tell the truth I have a hard time finding sport weight sock yarns I like. Anywho, could you be convinced to write up what I would need to change when using fingering weight on that pattern? Also, here's a thought; how would I alter it to knit knee-highs?
