chilly july

Don't get me wrong...I much prefer the cold to the heat...I love snuggling up under blankets and wearing big chunky sweaters and wooly socks...but JULY!! you gotta be kidding me...

I was knitting these socks in preparation for the fall...but my feet are happy in them now...in July.


  1. Well I think we've had summer! Although things do usually improve again in August, and by September the weather may well be tropical. Love the socks they look sooo cosy!

  2. beautiful socks!

  3. Those socks are FAB! I am almost tempted to teach myself how to knit...although I suspect that I am so cack handed I'd never managed it.

    I could do with a bit of cool weather at the moment, Yorkshire seems to have been rather muggy for the last couple of weeks - swap??


  4. I agree...much better to be chilly than sweltering. We've also had a relatively cool spring and summer up until this past week or so. The socks are wonderful! I wish I could knit like that. I bet you can get gorgeous wools in your neck of the woods!

  5. they look fabulous!!!! and perfect to wear when eating scones, wouldn't you say???


  6. A Trifle Rushed...I am keeping my fingers crossed for August!! :)

    two hippos...thanks! they knitted up a treat!

    Seren...you should try! it is great...well I like it anyway :) um...i could do a swap for a week or so...I do LOVE yorkshire!

    Sue...there are too many wools to choose from! Luckily...this wool has the pattern dyed into it...so I'm really not that brilliant!! haha :)

    Mummi-ji...perfect for when eating scones! :)

  7. Wow, what a wonderful pair of socks. You are a very talented knitter. I can only knit scarves.

  8. Those socks are brilliant, the best I have ever seen. I covet them :)

  9. From Beyond...I love them!!! hey...you should try socks! you can knit them on two needles!! :)

    Jacqueline...Thanks! I am obsessed with them :)
