Secret Garden Socks

If it seems like I haven’t finished a pair of socks in ages, it’s because I haven’t. Being at home with pneumonia for practically the whole month of February really slowed down my sock knitting. You see, I knit socks in the car, at meetings, while having lunch at the library – you get the idea – and I just didn’t frequent those places much over the last few weeks.

I’m back on track now, though, and I’ve got a newly finished pair of socks to show for it.

Behold the Secret Garden Socks. They look great posing with my yellow crocus.

And equally beautiful with the purple crocus in my father-in-law’s yard.

The yarn is Sophie’s Toes in the color Secret Garden. The pattern is Carole’s Picot Edge Sock, of course. And they are a gift for my stepdaughter, Jessica. Things haven’t been easy for her lately and I think these colorful socks will give her a nice little lift.

If I can bear to part with them, that is.

  1. Love the colors esp in the last photo. I’m sure they’ll cheer Jess up. What a thoughtful gift.

  2. Those Easter eggs colored socks will certainly bring a smile and the knowledge that she is loved.

  3. So pretty and spring-y!
    I love crocuses. I wish the @#%$@ deer wouldn’t eat them the minute they poke their pretty little heads out of the ground.

  4. Beautiful socks. I’m sure your stepdaughter will love them! Hmmm…haven’t done any stepdaughterly knitting in a while…

  5. pretty socks~ AND how lovely that you have crocus!
    That pneumonia is just rotten. I had it from Dec-Jan.. ick..
    May it be a healthy year for all of us.

  6. Hi Carole! Of all the colors I dye, that one is one of my all-time faves! Thanks for showing it off so beautifully! (I’ve been thinking about a Baktus, and now that color is a serious contender….)

  7. Oh, those are beautiful colors on those socks! And I do envy you the flowers, too. We’ve just got little shoots that will eventually be crocuses.

  8. What happy colors. It’s dreary and supposed to snow here so I could use some bright socks or yarn to make me remember spring will eventually come.

  9. I think a gift that shows you’ve been thinking of someone is always appropriate — especially in difficult times. I hope Jessica will be ok.

  10. Beautiful socks! I always love the yarn you picked out — and then can never find it! Very spring-y looking!

  11. oh i love them! your stepdaughter will too! i hope the spring weather is good to your lovely flowers and you start feeling better!
