SOCKS!!!


Look at these AWESOME socks that Paula made!! And the best part is she sent them to ME!!
Visit Paula's blog here............ http://thequilter.blogspot.com/
go ahead, she's TALENTED and friendly and sweet!




but before you go to her spot, check these things out!!
They have the neatest little stripes, and see those heels??







I am sooooooooo amazed that people can knit. It just astounds me that someone can take two pointy sticks and some yarn and make something useful! and beautiful!!!
I did TRY to learn to knit, back in my relatively distant youth. I took handworks classes one summer, you know summer school to keep kids busy? Remember those days? I was a country kid, so my mother probably signed me up so I'd do something other than play in the creek and read books all day



And look how well they fit me!!!!
I love love love these beauties!
plus they have passed the CAT scan.............





And the LAB work!
thank you Paula! they are simply wonderful!!!

I wish I could knit, but nope. I have tried my whole life, but couldn't get the hang of it.

absolutely wonderful! And, if memory serves me, those socks were probably knitted with MORE than two needles, which is why I never knitted socks... only sweaters and scarves. I could handle two needles, but three or more....nope. I know my limits!

I love Pat's silly comments. Great socks. I'm glad they passed the test.
