Sock It To Me

Well, the first ho is done!

First Kilt Hose

I am happy, but not content. I’m still running about two days behind in my goals for the Kintting Olympics, but I think I might be able to pull this off it time. My joy is indeed frabjous.

But, as long-term kiltwear goes . . . eh, these may not be the thing. Some blocking will definitely be in order. My next pair of kilt hose (oh yes, there will be more) will have to include some amount of ribbing in the leg and some cabling. These will be good socks, but I can improve upon them.

And now, a gratuitous photo of the frozen Texas Hill Country:

    Congratulations! A mighty ho indeed! Of course there will be more socks – once you start you become immediately addicted…..

    Thanks, Cynthia!
    I’m definitely hooked on socks. They’re fun, reasonably quick, and a hell of a lot more useful in Texas than hats are.

    Such a beautiful ho! Coagulations!
    You all don’t know from frozen. But that’s a pretty picture.

    If you have a chance, take a look at my blog – I’m talking about you and your sweater project. It’s all your fault that I did that Aran sweater (grin).

  5. David Says:

    Cynthia, I’m so glad you did the Aran sweater too! We must get together and have a sweater reunion one of these days.

    Now I’ll have to dig back through your blog and see how it went for you . . .

    Hey, I just found you via Rose-Kim. Great cable chart program! I’m in Austin, trying to get my Olympics project done as well. Dpns and socks terrify me–I live vicariously through sock knitter’s blogs. Nice work…hmm….maybe I’ll try thinking about it!

    Wunderbarer Strumpf! And yes, there will be more to feed the sock beast!
    I agree with Pippy (after having spent 7 years in Upstate NY!), Texans don’t know frozen! (But I’ll take this kind over the NY kind any day!)
