Fried Pickles!

(Couldn't resist)


Oooo, lovely socks!

I hope you enjoy your fried pickles at Rhinebeck, Rhinebeck, Rhinebeck!


First of all, your socks are lovely. You do beautiful work.

I have to say, that as a native Bay Arean, I live for this time of year. I would be happy if it rained every day this winter. We just moved back home from Sacramento, and when it rains this hard, it floods there. I didn't mind that, either - our house was well above the flood line. We had a creek behind our house that was filled with all the waterbirds, and I loved watching them fly in and out. We also had eagles and hawks who reveled in the water. Water is cleansing. It also is good for my skin. There's nothing like an overcast, rainy day to get me knitting more. I love it! My meds and I don't do well in the heat; this is my kind of weather. If I weren't a dyed-in-the-wool ('scuse the semi-pun) Californian, I would move to Seattle.

As for Rhinebeck and fried pickles, the first sounds like it could be fun (although I don't do well in crowds); the second sounds like something that would cause me serious distress. I don't like pickles in any form - frying them sounds worse than friend Twinkies. Sorry!

I like the diamonds. And love your olive green.

As for the cabled socks...the front cable looks something like a net or a web...does that help get the creative juices flowing? :-)


gorgeous socks! will the patterns be available for sale? our state fair has deep fried pickle slices, and they are delish...they serve them with a dipping sauce.


As they say diamonds are a girls best friend - or in other words, I really like the diamonds. The yarn your using is beautiful. Do you harvest your own stuff for your natural dyes or do you buy it? Natural dying is the next step I'm hankering to take a plunge at.

This year at the county fair I had a fried oreo cookies - they were mad good. They'll fry anything I tell ya :)


I like Mr. Stork but I hate that he's eating the little fishes!

I like the chevrons myself but I love the sock (and color) either way!

mmmmm fried pickles :::best homer simpson drool::: Ok I'm 8 too, hee!


I love the yarn for your Charlie socks and the pattern is great too! I think I like the diamonds best.

And your cabled sock looks so soft and warm! Very classic looking design.


Just a guess, are they called Charlie socks because of the zigzag's resemblance to Charlie Brown's tshirt? I like them a lot.
