Fleece Artist Rocks

I love these socks. Knit in my usual sock pattern, 2 inch K2P2 cuff, short row heel, four-point toe. But these are scrumptious socks. I love the feel of them.
Yarn: Fleece Artist 100% Merino Wool, machine washable, 325 m per skein, color "Midnight" (and my picture really doesn't so them justice, the colors are so brilliant in person)
Needles: US 2 Brittany birch DPNs
Such love, I can't wait to cast on another pair. I'm swiftly creating quite a collection of socks for myself. :) I can't tell you how happy it makes me to slip into a pair of my own handknit socks.

My small package from Scout came today as well. Two cute felted flower kits, the pattern for a Poinsettia wreath (getting a jump on next Christmas), and samples of Soak, the gentle wool wash that Scout is now carrying. I'm going to try one out on my socks that I've been wearing this week. I have several pairs that need a good soak. ha ha I asked Scout to send my order sometime in January to surprise me and she did! I was pleasantly surprised and it was a day that I certainly felt like giving myself a treat. :)

Isn't finishing a pair the best feeling? Are the colors more blue? They looking kind of brown on my end. Cool regardless!

Nice looking socks! I've built up quite a collection of socks for myself of the past 9 months or so. Nothing feels so cozy as handknit socks :)

Oooo the socks look very nice. Yay for nice packages and getting it as a semi-surprise is even better.

I love your socks. Time for me to make myself some new ones, all of my old ones are wearing out. :(
I bet the flowers will look really neat.
