Stockinette soothes my troubled soul.

GS1

So does an excellent pattern and fabulous yarn.

GS3

The bent wire stitch markers from my shop help, too.

Also...

Don't wax your own eyebrows when sad.

(pictureless, you sadists.)

:)

Have a good week!!

Those are some great looking socks.

Stacey said...

very pretty - i like the german stockings in the semi solid....hopefully you didn't do too much damage to your eyebrows!!!

Alyson said...

Wow, handspun sock - it looks fantastic!

I bought a lovely eggplant yarn for those same stockings, and then I immediately worried that the pattern wouldn't pop as much as they did in the ivory. Thank you for assuaging me - these look fantastic!

Oh, and I hear ya. I like plucking my eyebrows when I'm upset - it gives me something to focus on. Unfortunately, it's not always the best thing for my eyebrows.

Wonderful sock yarn + a great pattern. It's hard to beat. Nice socks!

Miss T said...

Beautiful!

Blast, I was really hoping for a picture. ;)

Lovely sock pictures. You can keep those coming. :)

lexa said...

Great looking handspun sock. Love the new Cookie sock, too.

Mental note about the eyebrow thing.

Hellen said...

Your sox are great! I just received the stitch markers I purchased from your etsy shop. Thanks for the lovely things! I mentioned your blog and shop on my new blog at knittingodyssey.com today. Go look.

Love the socks!! I have been eyeing the German Stockings. I think I will have to break down and make them.

Zonda said...

OUCH!! I so know your pain!

Ok, the handspun socks are awesome as well as the german stockings! Ahhh stockinette!

anne said...

wax them when you're in a hurry—ouch! of course most of us KNOW that already . . .

Laura said...

The gray and yellow socks are cool, but those purple ones are awesome. :-)

loribird said...

Oh no, not the eyebrows!! *much sympathy*
The handspun sock looks fantastico! I love the colors melt and fade into each other - very nice. And I was planning to use my stashed skein of Fearless Fibers (Morocco) to knit that very pattern - excited to see how yours turn out! Be sure to let us know how much yarn is left (I'm a bit worried...)
PS - your beautiful pearl stitch markers are gracing my Millicent socks-in-progress at the moment :) My swap pal loved her set too!

Chris said...

Gorgeous socks... but alas re: the eyebrows! Um, can you get implants? ;)

Wendy said...

Well, you can always knit new eyebrows out of fun fur i-cord.
Yeah, tht wouldn't be weird at all.

I hope the blues are fleeting.

Coleen said...

Love both socks. Every now and then you just gotta knit simple stockinette. I hope you are no longer sad!

hillary said...

Nice socks! I think many of us have had unfortunate eyebrow experiences once or twice. Hopefully it wasn't too bad.

Rhonda the Stitchingnut said...

your socks are beautiful ... and thanks for the laugh [sorry it was at your expense tho]. Next time force a smile when you're doing that.

cookie said...

Dude! The socks are awesome. I'm curious about the eyebrows. It can't be worse than when I decided I wanted to try bleaching my eyebrows "just a little bit". They ended up white and freaky looking. So I found some dark red dye to try to bring them back to a more normal color. They turned out pink. PINK. I had to go to work the next day. That was horrible.

Sus said...

Alas, I have no eyebrow horror stories to share. But I do find the purple socks to be AWESOME. :)

Romi said...

Nice stuff! :)

jenfromRI said...

The socks look great. And don't worry too much, eyebrows grow back.

Shelley said...

Great socks (love both of the colourways, especially the purple), and those stitch markers are way too cool!

SpindleKnits said...

Oooh, nothing better than handspun and socks! But your german stockings come pretty close!
Bummer about the eyebrows.
Hoping you get happy!

KT said...

The handspun socks (in the handdyed yarn) are just awesome. Really, really awesome.

I tried waxing my own eyebrows just once. I lost half an eyebrow right before a ballroom dance competition and I will never EVER get near that stuff again. EVER.

Dulcedosa said...

HEHEHE! I don't DARE attempt to wax my own eyebrows ever again. I only had one good eyebrow left and I was in a quandry whether to keep it or not. I decided to keep it and fake in the other brow until i grew back.

I love your wire markers. Very cute!
