There’s one less WIP on the needles because I finished the Peppermint Mocha socks on Tuesday. They are for me (I’m such a selfish knitter) and I love ’em.
All those patterned socks are great and lots of fun to knit but there’s something truly wonderful about a plain ole pair of stockinette socks.
The yarn is Claudia’s Handpaint in the colorway Peppermint Mocha and I bought it from The Loopy Ewe. The pattern is your basic 64 stitch, picot edge sock.
They make me want to drink hot chocolate, eat peppermint candy . . .
And wear my new clogs.
Done?!? Already?!? Love them. Especially with the new clogs! 🙂 (And glad to know that I’m not the only one who buys clogs based on how awesome they will look with handknit socks.)
Oooo! Cute clogs! (And socks.)
peek a boo clogs, perfect for a sock knitter!
You already know how much I love that yarn :-)…..they look fabulous!
I bought some new shoes from Zappos mostly to show off my handknit socks, and the instep was cut too high and I had to send them back. I was sad.
Stockinette socks, though, make me happy. They’re comfort knitting. And you’re rocking them w/those clogs.
They are yummy!! Maybe I need more of that yarn. Cute shoes, too.
Yep, love the ‘pretty’ socks but it’s usually always the plain stockinettes I reach for from the drawer. Love the picot edge and those colours are fabulous.
I have to admit I’m a bit of a clog ho, and I LOVE those new clogs of yours!
Oooo! Vera nice! I need some new clogs that’ll go with handknits socks.
Cute clogs and lovely socks!!
Love ’em! I just bought a new pair of Mary Jane Keene clogs for the same reason. But I also got sidetracked looking around your desk. Do you have Troll pens in you pencil cup?
The socks are cute, but I love your new shoes!!
Cute clogs and socks! I love wearing clogs. That’s actually all I wear in the fall/winter, then I switch to slides and sandals in the summer.
I love the socks! The clogs are awesome, too!
The socks are cute, but the clogs are great! 🙂

Lovely socks! Who knew that becoming a sock knitter would have me eyeing every pair of shoes for how well they would show off my socks. Love those clogs!

Festive! If only I could wear clogs….
I’m a sucker for plain stockinette stitch socks.
Wool Winder says
Sometimes it’s nice to let the yarn do all the work. Love them!
Oh, those are very cute socks! LOVE THOSE CLOGS!! I think I need a new shoe fix…
Cute socks! Now I think I need to go shoe shopping 🙂
Great looking socks and they look so nice with your clogs!
Those socks are really cute,and the yarn pattern looks good. I just finished a pair of stockinette socks. It was so nice to have them to work on when I felt unable to work on complex ones. I love the clogs though. OK, I MUST now have some with cutwork to show off my socks. What are those clogs?
Ach, you make me want to dig through my stash like a mad woman and cast on another pair of socks! Of course, it’s another pair because I have a second sock in progress! VBG!
Lovely work, lovely sock/clog combo.
Perfect! I adore that colorway, but I’ve sworn off sock yarn until I clear out some stash! (snicker!!)
Love ’em! And love the clogs too! I need to go shoe shopping.

Cute! Your new footwear combo almost makes me want to embrace the season. Almost!
Pretty socks and shoes! I wore socks for the first time this fall yesterday and it felt so good.
They are lovely! I love the plain stockinette showing off the beautiful colors 🙂
love ’em! and the new clogs too. I especially love the way the heel turned out. Such a perfect sock for clogs.
Actually, they reminded me of Pippy Long Stockings. 😀 They’re very pretty. I love fall. I was so excited that I could snuggle up with my hubby yesterday and drink hot cocoa.
Very pretty and they look great with your shoes.
Look how fabulous you are!
Those clogs were made for handknit socks.
They look great! I especially like how the heel knit up. Hope you enjoy them 😉
You know. I love that pattern more than just about any other for hand-dyed yarns! They’re wonderful (so are your new clogs!!!) hmm…they’d go with my new WPS, too! tee hee…gotta go check out that yarn.
I socks are pretty great, but the clogs totally stole the show!
Hi, I love your socks. I’m a begginer at knitting socks and I was wondering if you can find this pattern somwhere.
The socks are awesome….and in my book there is no such thing as a selfish knitter. In my life there is so much “giving”, “taking care of”, “helping”, “instructing”, etc that I have to keep at least one thing for myself…my knitting.
I totally love the socks! Makes me want to go buy sock yarn.
Love the new socks! They look great with the new clogs, I love clogs…
Great socks, and nice clogs, what kind?
Debi Leshin says
Cute shoes with VERY cute socks!
Those look good enough to eat,lol! I some peppermint mocha in my stash but haven’t gotten to it yet but after seeing yours I might have to move it up on the list.
Carole–I’m beginning to think that you are plotting against my budget. First it was the cutie pie converse with the baby sheep, that I just HAD to own myself (only to find out two weeks later that my son’s kindergarten teacher dons the same pair). Now it’s the clogs that look so fantastic with the handknit socks. You are a cruel woman….but keep it up, I like this kind of temptation.
I heart your socks, but I covet your clogs.
Love the socks. They look great with the clogs. Now I’m off for some hot cocoa.LOL
Yummy socks – and I love the shoes!
Spiffy clogs – they do go nicely with the new socks. 🙂

It seems that every time you finish a pair of socks, I find myself gasping “MUST HAVE that colorway!” And this pair is no exception. We wants it, precious! 🙂
