Ah, you picture the sock bag and link to me and I drool over your dpns - a fair trade?

Froding said...

Hi!
I must say that this colour is the most wonderful I have ever seen for long time. I am also a lover of Trekking yarn, so much that I bought sockyarn for MANY dollars just to get one skein of this, but I bought colour nr 110!

adrienne said...

Oh, another Pomatomus! It looks fantastic, and I love the colourway. What number is it?

Dave said...

Pomatreks! Very nice :-)

Alyssa said...

Oooooh, pretty! What a nice adventure for your sock:)

mf said...

Great colorway! I've never tried those DPN, hows about a review on them....

lexa said...

Ooooooooooo.... I love how that yarn looks as Pomatomous! I wanted to do the Trekking thing, but I can't find it around here. Tried eBay, too, but no go. Maybe they'll do it again, and I'll have better luck! :(

At least my STR for my rpms arrived today! (And I didn't have to pay duty! Bonus!) I have something else I should finish first, but methinks me sees me casting on rpms tonight!

Sonya said...

The Trekking looks great in that pattern!

julia said...

The Pomatomus look great in the Trekking yarn, I wouldn't have thought this before, thanks for showing.

margene said...

Trekking makes a great P-word sock! Nice work.

I like how the treking stripes along with the pomo-whatevers. And the shell stitch marker is awesome

Carla said...

Those are Wonderful! LOVE

PBnJ said...

Ah, the simple pleasures of life! (sock knitting, good dpns, nice yarn...) :D glad your sock had a good time trekking.

Liz said...

I love how those colors are striping with that pattern. Great choice!

I just wanted to share with you...I finally got my hands on Schaeffer Anne in the red color you have that I was coveting :)

Rachel said...

Oooohhh! That looks great!

Jerry & Maxy said...

What a great adventure. And your pics are superb!!!

Jeanne said...

Very nice - I finished a pair in this colorway, but they don't look anywhere near as nice as yours.

FairyGodKnitter said...

I finished a pair of Trekking socks this week but your's are so nice that I considered frogging mine and Pomatotrekking. I'll just have to get some more of this yarn.

Kerry said...

I love the colour of the Trekking you are using. Can you tell me the number?

Paisley said...

What a pretty pomatomus - great combination. Good yarn + good pattern + good needles = all round fun knitting.

Coleen said...

I have been wanting to get some trekking for a while now, but I promised myself that I would wait to buy some when I go to the beach in a few weeks. You are not helping me to be patient! That sock is beautymus!

gerald said...

by side by side.

I'm really liking the Pomatomus socks. I just get scared to not to have enough yarn to finish the toes it I do them top down.

Bridget said...

Love the trekking color, I bought that color for my friend once and have been meaning to get some for me ever since. It looks great as a Pomatomus.

beckyboo said...

Gorgeous! I am going to have to do those socks now!

Jason said...

Truly beautiful combination of color and pattern. Wow!

Looks like you're up for a duel with Athena. Funny, even when Arachne won, she lost. That is if you consider growing 4 more appendages, and perpetually weaving, as losing.

p.s. nice socks (and cute toddler, to boot!).

Ava said...

BEAUTIFUL Pomatomus!

paula said...

Wow! those are beautiful, but my Trekking couldn't handle being p-sock after a drinkie at Pat O'Brien's in Nawlins.

Stacey said...

I see you decided on a pattern! I love the way it's knitting up - the pattern is not at all lost in the yarn!

My husband LOVES I&O burgers! Too bad there are none in the East!

Zonda said...

Love the sock!

Glad you stayed cool!

Annie said...

beautiful! i never thought of doing poma with trekking, the colors look fantastic! Adding that to the idea file.... :-)

April said...

perfect yarn, perfect pattern, perfect socks. don't you just love it when it all comes together like that?

Rhonda said...

Pomatomus is perfect for Trekking! Oh how you love to knit socks!! Gosh, I better knit a lot faster to keep up with you.

JennyRaye said...

The Trekking P-socks are gawgeous, dahling!!!!

Kristi said...

I love the pomatomus in that trekking. Wow.

Spinny Bunt said...

Oooh, I just got that color and it looks great in the Pomo pattern. I think I'll do that one next. Thanks for the wonderful pics!

Jennifer said...

The P-word socks are glorious in the Trekking!

b1-66er said...

all the choka ads are now for sock stuff.

worth a click, i say.

Kelli said...

I love Pomatomus in that colorway! Would you mind sharing which colorway it is? I am also about to start my rpms, but i have to get my STR first!

the kitchener bitch said...

Lovely! As usual.

Chrissy said...

I love the way the wide stripes are working out. It looks like a rainbow!

tatjana said...

ARG! i can't resist! the Trekking looks so nice with that pattern. you're gonna make me look like such a sock follower...sigh ;)

Karen said...

I LOVE that Trekking colorway! I did Pomatomus in Trekking as well, except in a pinky/purpley stripe colorway. Mmmmm...trekking.

Roo-Bee-Faye said...

Like many a commenter before, love the Trekking color! The picture of the sock in the foreground and your baby in the background is fabulous! I guess we've all been there!

Chris said...

Oh, I love the P 100! Hmm, might have to make a pair.... The problem is that 100 looks great as so many things, so how to choose?!

NorCalKnitter said...

Thanks for the comments on my blog. I love the Pom socks in that colorway. I never would have thought of useing Trekking yarn, but am now seriously considering it. Really seriously. No, I must control the urge and do more stach-busting, my closet is starting to overflow!!

Karen said...

Your sock is beautiful! That Trekking is one of my favorites (mine are done in the Classy Slip Up pattern).

tara said...

Very nice yarn (I'm glad, too, that you're using my stitch markers!)

Bobbi said...

Wow! Your pomatomus socks look great! Now I want the color you have to make my very own pomatomus. But, I haven't even found any XXL that would be willing to make the trek to my house. Hmmmm, I may have to order some.

Heide said...

I've never tried Trekking yarn, but this is one of the prettiest socks I've ever seen and now I'm drooling and yearning for Trekking!

the kitchener bitch said...

Hey Aija, go to the Home Despot and get yourself some Tite-Bond II wood glue. I snapped not one or two but three pairs of Brittany birch needles, and I borrowed this stuff from my carpenter. It made an absolutely smooth, seamless join that I just buffed up. In your case you'd have to paint over the join so it didn't look like FrankenNeedle, but that'd be a small inconvenience to have 5 needles again.

Elena said...

Fantastic colour on these great socks!

Sarah Hall said...

Wow! I'm falling in love with your incredibly fascinating pair of colorful socks! My Mom is fond of knitting, so I'll share this post with her! Working with the most professed custom essay writers, I'm now running out of time and must leave!
