jolly hockey socks, take five

While we were in Norfolk, I finished two new pairs of sKNITches socks, this time in Denim Fade, a variegated colorway custom-dyed for me in stripes,

and Breathmint,

which I'm hoping will keep my feet smelling minty fresh! Though in this heat, woolen socks probably aren't so conducive to sweet-smelling feet...

  5. I too am impressed that I know someone who has wool custom dyed! You should run a bespoke sock and cowl online order service.

  6. Those are so pretty! Great job :)

    I've begun dyeing sock yarn with botanical materials, but the idea of requesting custom-dyeing is very appealing!

  9. They are the most beautiful socks ever, subtle yet jaunty. How about knitting some in cotton as well?

  11. I LOVE these socks. They take me back to my teenage years of munching mints from the corner shop near school.

    They are beautiful.

  15. Kristina, they're gorgeous! I adore the colors of your custom-dyed ones. I have yet to try knitting socks; it seems intimidating, but yours always turn out so beautifully.
