ooooh. i want to learn to knit socks so badly...these look divine.
Lucky you! Isn't bartering fun. One of these days I'll get a pair made (that I'm willing to wear).
what a fabulous idea.barbara brown
Nothing better than comfy cozy socks!!!
Great socks! Nothing better than a swap!
well, you are a just a bartering/swapping fool now, aren't you? :)Love the socks! Knit socks on next on my "knitting to do list". They look so comfy!
love your knit socks!!
My challenge for Feb. is to make myself a pair of socks. Yours look so warm.
ooh lucky you! Those look lovely!
Yipee! What a great exchange!
Sweet! Sorry I've been missing in action commenting on all your recent amazing work. Always know that I am in the background cheering you on and appreciating all that you share.Love the Bartering idea! Maybe someday we can exchange "stuff"!
Aren't they the best?! I have a pair that a Swedish grandma made for me when I lived there. I never really appreciated them until recently when I learned about the love that went into making them. What a treat for you! I have bought some yarn to make some for myself. Now I just need to learn how! Great job Mama Urchin.
These look great! I just got given another pair of socks knitted by a friend! It's true that nothing feels quite so great on your feet - apart from perhaps the warm water of the Mediterranean lapping round your toes!
Lovely socks!!!Great swap !!!Prayers, Bo
Those socks are great! What a fun swap!!!
Hand knit socks are the best! My mom has worn holes in the few pairs I made her, and still won't give them up! Great swap.
I recently taught myself to knit and then listed the links I used to help me along the way. For those interested, check them out at http://suzyqsparkle.blogspot.com/2009/01/knitting-links.htmlI *love* my hand-knit pair and NEED to make some more!
Those look so cozy!
Great socks. About the only time I knit socks is when I'm traveling to visit my kids that are scattered all over the country. I find it's hard to get the second one finished--too much of the same thing over and over. I think I might try knitting both at the same time next time;) BTW, I used the beanie pattern you referenced a few weeks back. WOW do they ever work up fast. As long as it's still snowing here I'll keep working on the beanies--maybe more socks come Spring;)
hooray for the swaps!!! great idea!
NICE swap.i saw those.....and LOVED the colorway!!!
Warm and comfy indeed. Trading, swapping, bartering - all very traditional and fits right in with quilting and hand crafts. Well done.Cheers!
I'd say that was a good swap...I love my knitted socks.
So, I see someone beat me to it. I am so glad you have a pair now. But one pair is not enough, never enough...
I just got my how-to-knit-socks book in the mail yesterday. I've always wanted a pair of hand-knit socks, so I thought I'd finally do it my self. I love yours, and I hope you enjoy them for a long time.:) Diane
Handknit socks are the BEST!
Ahhhh. My feet can only imagine something so beautiful covering them.
Hello! I just found your blog and I'm loving it so far. I really love that you give tutorials, thank you in advance. :) PS. Love the socks!
Great job, Mama Urchin! Those look great. Nothing beats knit socks. I have a few pairs and love them so much, that I decided to teach myself. Just doing baby socks for now though. Great swap!
yay! This sounds like a very rewarding swap. Enjoy the new socks!
