Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock Finished

In the midst of family crisis (yet again), at least I'm able to finish something:

Lornas Laces Sheperd Sock - Purl Soho Colorway - CEDAR Stripe

Yarn: Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock - Purl Soho custom color - "Cedar Stripe"
Needles: Crystal Palace DPNs - Size 1 (2.25 mm)
Pattern: A basic sock pattern - see the blog entry here

I'm still working on the Mountain Colors "Wilderness" sock and am closing in on the toe decreases.

Now, if you don't really "get" sock-knitting (i.e. why knit socks when you can buy perfectly fine pre-made socks at the store?), I had my own shining moment of understanding when I was reading this: Properly used, socks get used up. They are, like so many wonderful things and people... here for a good time, not a long time...and it's our duty to get our footwear out and show it a good time.

Well, I've casted on for Birch!! I will need really good lighting for this project. Did you do the garter or stockinette version? Which gives a neater look? You are a sock making machine. Two for hubby? Lucky guy.

Oh yes, very classic in deed. xxx

Those are great socks! I love that stripe. I used to be bewildered by sock knitting- not the "how," but the "why," until I tried on my first handmade sock. Addicted ever since.

I like the stripiness of that sock! Yeah, that post was great, wasn't it? I need to bookmark it to refresh my memory when people ask those questions...
