Fairy Tale Socks... and Matching Mitts!

I *did* get my Fairy Tale Sock Club #2 Third Sock Kit in the mail on Thursday night. (I now have a Peacock of my Own. That's all I'm sayin'.) Rather than dive right into it, though, I decided that I'd finish my Second Sock Kit first. Since I was home sick most of Friday, by Friday evening, I was up to here:

and by Saturday afternoon, they were done!

I'm warning you RIGHT NOW that this is lots of photos of these things, because I love them so...!

... and Back!

Now, I love, love, LOVE this pattern. And, since I have freakishly small feet *and* knit loosely, I had a lot of yarn left over. So, my sleep pattern being completely mucked up, I stayed up until 2:30 Sunday morning knitting this:

Sunday, I got roughly halfway on the second one, but by the end of Monday (well, by the end of Leno), they were done.



The So, socks *and* mitts for the price of one little kit - pretty darned cool!!

Okay, now I'm just showing off.

This is far and away my favorite of the Fairy Tale Sock Club patterns thus far, but you could probably tell that...!


  1. The socks are stunning! And I love your solution for the extra yarn, nice mitts.

  2. I love the socks! The wrist warmers are fantastic. I really need to learn to knit so I can have cute socks.

  3. Those socks are kind of amazing and Fantastic, the geek in me dances with visions of Art History Craters and yeah :D
