#53 of 365 - Socks, Yet Again

I love socks as you all know, I also love clog style shoes. These socks are clog socks as the design only goes up the back of the heel. These were mostly knitted whilst sitting in court listening to testimony regarding the return of our congregation, Grace and Saint Stephen's real property last spring. We, on the right side of the courtroom were regular Madame DeFarges. About 6 of the women on our side of the aisle knitted during that seemingly endless trial. Our property was returned to us by judicial decree and we returned to it on Palm Sunday, 2009. I have made two pairs of these socks, one pair in wool and one pair in cotton. They are both really smooshy and show off nicely when I am wearing a skirt or a pair of shorts. This is a photo of the wool pair, I can't seem to locate a photo of the cotton pair at the moment.

Like Diana, LOVE the duplicate Madame Defarges! I would love to find the nerve to try making these! I pretty much live in clogs now.

More pretty socks! I had never heard of Clog Socks! I do live in mine, but they are Croc's.... I know, most people think they are the worst, but they are the only shoe that keeps me out of my horrid orthopedics. The wood is just not good for my feet... I want to make a pair that goes with every pair of Croc's that I have... and I have alot.... In fact I was gonna order a new pair today....
Ok... gonna go and look at the pattern, I have it on Raverly, but never really looked at it....
