{A Valentine's FO}

Happy V-Day to you all, whether you're celebrating with a lover, friends or family.  I'm not big on valentine's day, myself. Neither is Mr. Pie. He makes me super special and loved EVERY day of the year, so we don't worry about over priced roses or trying to get a dinner reservation.  We just cuddle and kiss like normal. hehe (did anyone puke?)

Knitting! I have an FO to show you! I even took the picture all by myself. hehe

This is another pair of the Mock Cable Socks from the Socks from the Toe-Up book, this time in Pagewood Farms sock yarn.  The colours they have are SO LOVELY!  I used just a little over half the skein.  I definitely need to work on my patience for doing the leg. hehe 

Otherwise they fit nice!   I did something different this time - I cast on for the toe with just 8 starting stitches for each side (a total of 16) and it looked so funny on the needles, but the toes fit really nice and snug.  I think I'll do that always from now on. 

I have more sock yarn I need to match up with  patterns!  I recently bought some Knit Picks Stroll and am very anxious to give it a try. I LOVE the colour! It's called  Kindling Tonal.

I'm not sure whose socks these will be yet.  Hmmmmmmm....


  1. Cute socks! Happy V-day to you too!

  2. Gorgeous socks! I wish I had the patience to knit one, let alone a whole pair!!

    Happy V-day!

  3. Love the socks! And I totally agree about the Valentine's Day thing. It's really not my thing, and I've thought that for a long time, whether I've had a boyfriend or not at the time!
    Also, I love that Stroll Tonal color. It's one of my favorites! Can't wait to see what you'll make with it! :-)

  4. Nice socks I can't wait to hear what you think about the Knit Picks Stroll yarn. I have been wanting to try it but no one I know has used it.

  5. The socks (and that yarn) are gorgeous!

  6. I have to say... the feet in this picture look an awful lot like grandpas! hahaha
