You are so right Allison. All of the socks are "simply" awesome!!!


Amazing!!! I have to admit that, while I am impressed with the skill & technique of the Fair Isle/ Mosaic socks, I am just a huge fan of stripes. But there is not a single pair that shouldn't have the knitter's buttons popping off with pride! I have been in quite a slump for the past month or so & these socks have fired up my creative juices. I think I'll have to vote & then buy a bunch of the SS yarn (I've been meaning to anyway.)


I feel like snatching those sheep socks off of Amy's feet. I love sheep!!! Someday I will have to find the patience to tackle Fairisle "anything". The stripe patterns are TO KEEP for future inspiration too, and I am now also wanting to make a pair of mismatched complimentary color socks. The thing is - I have some of these sock pattern books but have been too "chicken" to try them - but now seeing these knit up - I think I will have to try. Thank you knitters for very much inspiration for design and color combination.


Unbelievably beautiful hand-knit socks. I'm amazed at the talent they've displayed here. (Came here from Susan B Knits blog).

I have been in a knitting 'slump'. Thank you for the e-mail with the socks; I have started to knit a pair of socks to-night; "out of my slump!" Thank you. Marlene Y.


Thanks Diane for the nice comment! These were fun to knit and the idea just sort of came to me. I love sheep, too, and I wanted to include some in my design. So, I experimented with creating the sheep in fairisle and used the green check to simulate grass. Voila! These socks were born. I'm so glad that you like them.

Very hard to choose, with so many pretty entries! I choose #2 because of the unusual color choice.


I like 7, 4, and one. Seven for the theme, four for the colours and 1 just because I like them.


#13 is the most outstanding of all the wonderful socks.


I cannot decide. How about 'every body wins!'? They are all so fantastic. Nice job, everyone.

My vote goes to number 10.


I'm partial to pinks so #1 does it for me.

Which would I want to wear myself? Number 11

Which colour combinataion? Number 15 but wished they were fitted up the leg a little further
Which inspires me to start another pair myself? Number 7.
So which shall I vote for? Number 7


No. 4 gets my vote. I love the colors.


Vote #1 but they are all inspiring.


I'm voting for sock #10, can't resist the little sheepies! But I really like sock #11 too. All the socks are wonderful!!

Janet C

Socks 9 appeal to me because of the "op art" effect.


I definitely will knit the tulip socks..they look like fun to make. I may change the colors, but then I always do.


Amazing! Congrats to all the entries - they are so beautiful.


I vote #14

Marie Gassler

I'm on board with No. 14 - great color combo and the maze pattern is intriguing.


I vote for #6...but I loved them all...they all should pat themselves on the back


I vote for #12. They're fun!


#1 gets my vote. They are my favorite =)


I would vote for #10, they are so clever and original. Very creative and so cute too!


I vote for Socks 10


My vote goes to #12. Good use of color and pattern. Actually, they are all beautiful ,& it was hard to settle on just 1.

Carol Laubach

Every single pair of socks is fantastic and amazing. I loved them all and find choosing difficult, but I will vote for #12. Couldn't they all win??!!!!


I read my email too late to vote, but I do not think I could pick one anyway. They are all just beautiful. Oh what handwork. They are all winners.


Such wonderful socks!! I love them all!
