"Puppy Dog Socks"


First sock in the making.... it's not smelly feet she's interested in, I swear!
Biko is todays model ...
... and her feminine touch ...

The next time I'll use a size larger needle for the mosaic part, it pulls together, but not too bad.
... even from the same dye lot, the skeins are not the same ...
... hey Sybille , can you see the puppy dog now?

Since I've got the Mosaic Knitting Book by B. Walker for my birthday, I had this sock idea cruising around my head. They are made with the custom dyed sweetgeorgia's yarn, I've ordered for David, but there was too much pink in it for him to like it.
yarn: sweetgeorgia yarns handpainted sock,100% merino wool, 112 g/ 420 yds
needles: 5 DP's 2.25mm
pattern: my own: I used the magic cast on for toe-up and a jojo heel
the puppy dog mosaic pattern comes from the "Mosaic Knitting" book by Barbara Walker
size: women 10 1/4
start-finish: November 23-25, 2006

Jetzt sehe ich, was mit Hundesocken gemeint war! Sie sehen echt toll aus, vor allem die Farben. Ist eine klasse Idee einen Pfotenabdruck mit einzustricken.

Great socks. I love the puppy dog motif across the cuff and the paw print on the toe! My pup always puts his foot right on top of mine where that print is!

Those are wonderful socks!!!! The doggies around the cuff are adorable and the paw print on just one toe is perfect!!

Great socks Monika!! Really creative! You gotta try the Turkish Cast On, I think it's easier than the "magic".

Hope your precious pup if feeling better soon!

Liebe Monika,
die Socken sind richtig klasse. Zuerst habe ich die Hunde in der Bordüre garnicht erkannt. Der Pfotenabdruck ist dann das i-Tüpfelchen! Die Fotos sind Dir auch toll gelungen und besonders gut gefällt mir das mit Bikos Pfote.

Liebe Grüße
Heike
