I admit it.  My name is Anne Bonney and I am a sockaholic.

I am not sure why National Sock Day is celebrated on December 4, but there you go.

I made these.  These are not my feet.

Socks!

With the cuff, heel flap and turn, gusset, foot and toe defined by different colors – harmonizing, but not matching. I had to snatch them off his feet to get a picture.

What am I knitting on tattoo Tuesday?

January 27, 2015

socks

This is a pair of socks I made using a double strand (Madelinetosh and Koigu yarns), 36 stitches on #4 needles.  The cuff was knit on #2 needles.  The furry part was knit on #4 needles.  I had the furry yarn on hand.  I cannot remember the manufacturer.  I thought these socks would be nice and warm to wear around the house – or the office instead of wearing my boots all day!

I bought the sock yarn at Bo-Peep Fine Yarns in Ligonier, PA.  This is a wonderful yarn shop!

Because it is Tuesday, here are some tattoos.  You have heard of tattoo sleeves.  It turns out there are tattoo socks, too.  These designs, however, take the name literally.

What am I knitting?

October 10, 2013

I know, the title of this blog is Gunsmoke and KNITTING and I have not posted much on either subject lately.

This one, however, is about knitting.  I recently traveled to Pittsburgh to see my brother and other things.  My brother lives in Ligonier, PA.  Ligonier is really a charming town with a lot of little shops – including Bo Peep Fine Yarns.  I had to stop there.

So this is the sock yarn I purchased there:

And I bought this yarn because it was pretty and sparkly.  I don’t know what I am going to do with it, but would appreciate any suggestions:

We wound up the afternoon with some excellent coconut cream pie:

EgyptianSocks

Thanks for HMS Defiant for this reference about Romano-Egyptian socks.  He watches me knitting and sent this delightful story along.

I am a sock knitter and one of the nice things about knitting your own is that you can tailor them to the recipient – color, length in all dimensions, weight.

However, I have never had to adjust my knitting to accommodate the apparently stork-footed (see there are storks again) individual for whom these socks were made.

Another note is that the story talks about single-needle knitting.  I always thought that was crochet – ?

Here’s the story.
