Carnival Socks

These I call my carnival socks. In 2003 when I began quilting I purchased a pattern for a quilted sweatshirt. I went to the local quilt shop with the intention of purchasing one in red, gray and black. I ended with some really wild oranges and purples and yellows...... The sweatshirt is not yet done but when I saw this yarn I knew it would be the perfect socks to go with the top. I even bought some dark purple velveteen to make slacks...... Boy, I sure do have enough to keep me busy for many winters............ Posted by Picasa


  1. Cute, cute socks! You are so multi-talented.

  2. Sounds like you have really been busy lately. Great job!

  3. You are a wizard with the knitting needles as well - your socks are beautiful :-)
    Your leaf quilt looks so good.
    Your favourite sewing place looks comfy and good :-)

  4. I had to laugh when I saw your retirement countdown! I couldn't bear to do it until the last few months - and really just did weeks until the last month. The time seemed to speed by anyway!

    Cute socks!

  5. They look like they would be fun socks to wear. Now -- on to that sweatshirt.

  6. I LOVE those socks! I love that self striping yarn..and sock knitting is one of my favorite things...they turned out just great! I would love to see the rest of the outfit when it is done for sure!!


Thank you for your comment.......
