Fresh off the needles

Fresh off the needles: a pair of old fashioned socks.
Who knew a pair of socks could make me so happy.

yarn: Botter IJsselmuiden/Olso
needle size: 3.5mm

I took the photo of the sheep at Fair Isle

Those very good socks make you want to put them on straight away!
That chilly little sparrow looks like she needs some too. Beautiful photos. Thank you. Penny

Lucy, Do you mind if I link to this post on my blog? I'll be talking about how people capture the essence of summer. Diane

You reminded me it's time to start another pair of socks. I try to knit at least one pair a year. Yours look great. I think this years pair will come from Elizabeth Zimmerman's old fashioned sock patterns. She even has a pair with a spiral bottom foot. I love your sheep photo. I have a file of quilt photos & sheep photos! Thanks for sharing.
