I have been working really hard getting these socks done, and finally, last night, I grafted the toes on each sock, wove in the ends, and stopped to admire them.
These are the first socks I’ve ever knit on sock yarn. It’s been a challenge, but I’m pleased with the results. I know I will knit more, as evidenced by my sock yarn stash.
I knit these on bamboo needles, which got warped during the process, but as we say in Hawai‘i, “Ainokea!” [I don’t care.] They are old friends now, and I will keep using them.
Walking through the fire. We all have our tough times, and these socks speak to me of walking through but eventually coming out on the other side. We don’t stop in the middle.
“Walking Through the Fire” socks. Lorna’s Laces “Flames” colorway. Knit on Size 1 needles. Blocked on
“Mokihana’s Palm Tree Sock Blockers” by Chappy.
I think they look great with tomatoes and marigolds.
It’ll be harder to photograph finished objects during the gray of winter!
I love them on the Tomaters! And the marigolds. Really good Moki (:
Mahalo nui, Blue!! I thought the colors of the tomatoes and marigolds were perfect for photographing the socks!
Love your socks! The colors are wonderful! Great photography, too!!!! Of course, love the sock blockers 🙂

I love the concept and the wonderful little ‘sermon’ most of all in the making of the socks. How many times we have to walk through the fire, and oh brother, how many times do I burn my poor little toes because I’ve stopped in the middle. Sometimes because of discouragement, curiosity, stubbornness, becoming faint at heart… But you are so right, to proceed through without stopping means we only get to the beauty quicker! Keep knitting Sista! Awesome job!
So nani! I love dem! Almost makes me want to learn to knit!
