Another FO

I seem to be getting quite some things done here in the last weeks. It's interesting, because my kids are out of school for their Christmas break and you would think I'm busy all the time with them? I guess that just leads to the conclusion that I need lots of knitting therapy right now to keep me sane, right?

Well, here are my fuzzy comfort socks, found in the German sock knitting book "Das geniale Sockenbuch". They are called "Sneakersocken" and the cuff is made by adding some fun fur in with the pattern on every other row. I think it makes for a nice surprise when you sit down, fold your legs over, the pants happen to pull up a bit and out comes a poof of yarn. It's quite the effect, trust me. Usually I'm very perticular about the socks being started at the same spot in the color repeat, but she didn't care about that and with all the fuzziness it was hard to figure out what color it was and where it is in the ball of yarn. With the ever changing colors there was no chance of the Second Sock Syndrom sneaking up on me.

This particular pair is going to my neighbor and she was oh so happy to put them on yesterday. She picked the colors too and wants me to make some more of them. I guess I found me a sock victim here. We'll see.

Those socks are really cute! I have a secret fun fur fetish. (I love fun fur trim. Shhhh. Don't tell. I try to pass myself off as a serious knitter.) I think I'd really enjoy having a poof of bright yarn pop out unexpectedly.

Cool Socks! Now I know how to get rid of some of that fun fur in my stash. I'm betting the kiddos will love socks like these. :)
