I was sure, absolutely positive sure, that I had already blogged about my latest pair of socks. I found them in my big works-in-progress basket the other day, though, and I thought . . . hunh . . . why are these here? I’ve already blogged them. So I did what any good blogger does – I searched the blog. I didn’t find them there although I was sure I had blogged about them before I went away on vacation. If one of you finds that post, don’t tell me, mmmmkay?
These started out as summer socks but since I’m only just now showing them to you I have decided to call them Back to School Socks. It’s September, after all, and these colors scream September and fall and pumpkins and apples and books.
Hence the props in the photos. I’m nothing if not predictable.
For those who want to know, the yarn is Painted Desert by Knitting Fever. The pattern is a basic 64 stitch sock pattern with a couple of inches of ribbing at the top.
Nothing fancy, nothing exciting, but plenty soft and plenty warm and plenty perfect for our (sadly) upcoming cold weather.
Great socks! They certainly do exude “Fall” and will warm your feet. 41° this morning here. Ugh.

Lovely socks. You’re right, the yarn definitely screams fall.

Beautiful. I do love the fall but hate winter especially the winter we had last year.
Beautiful! And sadly I did wear socks to work today…but not wool yet! Happy Monday!
Last week we needed socks, but this week it’s warmed up nicely. Soon enough you’ll be in need of all the beautiful sock in your sock drawer. How wonderful to have so much color, beauty, and warmth at your toe-tips.
I’m wearing wool socks this morning and it just seems too soon. Pretty socks!
Lovely socks! Please send some of your cold weather down here, we’re still in the upper 80’s. *fans self*
Pretty, pretty Autumn socks!
I like how the color of your socks evolve rather than pool. Perfect for the coming fall temps. I’ll miss summer, but I’m ready for some crisp weather. Have a great Monday, Carole!
The timing is better now… maybe that’s why you saved them? The light, the air, the cooler evenings, all whisper ‘winter is coming…’. The colors are beautiful.
They really do look Fall like. Just perfect! And speaking of Fall, what’s up with this weather?? It feels more like winter!

A departure from your usual pattern, no? I think if I refuse to acknowledge the chill, it does not exist. Also, I was forced to order new corduroy pants to match the socks I knitted during the spring and summer (half knitted, I should say – one of each pair….)
Perfect socks for fall. And winter too!
I was surprised when you told the yarn. I made socks that are almost identical to yours but out of Patons Kroy.
Love the books and apple backdrop for them. 🙂
it even feels like fall in Georgia today! those socks will be warm and cozy for sure. (and I don’t remember seeing them on the blog before)
I adore the colors!
La-la-la-la-la. I’m ignoring the cold air pouring in through my windows. I refuse to give in to the inevitable. No socks for me. . .
I love the socks. You are absolutely right… they say “fall is in the air”. Great props to use for you sock still life photos.
