Thanks for the gift-giving solutions! I think I'll take your collective advice, and give each shawl to its original recipient. And then make my escape as quickly as possible :)

A quick throwaway post- there's so much going on. I know everyone rolled their eyes when I started hyperventilating about the Austrian Knee Socks - there Eunny goes again, with her swooning and her hyperbole and her lust-at-first sight. Not so, friends. Once again: they are the alpha and the omega of handknit socks.

Still doubt me?

Edit: I see Jody has left a thoughtful comment about Heirloom Knitting to yesterday's entry. I agree with her sentiments - I absolutely believe in paying for quality, and the book (which I've gotten a chance to flip through) certainly is that. I think the confusion came because I thought it was priced at 32 pounds - still, as she says, that would be the price equivalent of buying two lighter tomes but worth a whole lot more. I think mine was just a knee-jerk reaction to a sum I'm not used to seeing next to my Interweave Press softcovers, but wouldn't blink at dropping on yarn or needles...definitely some interesting food for thought.

Comments

For the record, I did not roll my eyes. I might have drooled all over the keyboard, thereby jamming up the keys and preventing me from commenting, but I think they're beautiful, and you'll look amazing in them.

Those knee socks are going to be beautiful. I'd like to knit the thigh-high socks in Handknit Holidays, but I don't really know when I'd wear them. What do you wear your tall socks with? One of my resolutions for 2006 is going to be not to knit a lot of things that I won't be able to wear often - sure, they're fun to make, but then they just sit in my closet.

looks great! what yarn did you finally decide to use?

Gorgeous. And I can't help but feel a bit overwhelmed because I know I'll want to make them and I just can't see a spot for them on my ever growing to-knit list.

I never doubted those socks, not for a minute! They're the sort of socks they write songs about. Or if they don't, they should.

Oh my god they will be GORGEOUS! And what a color!

absolutely gorgeous, where did you get the pattern again? i love it...

i lurve those socks...i have lusted after them for a while...*drool*. as far as the book goes, are you apposed to buying it on amazon? cause it's pretty darn reasonable there...

What yarn are you using? The cables look wonderfully crisp and clear. I'm so glad that you posted the link to Amazon--I think I know what I'm using part of my annual Amazon gift certificate for!

Oh my... those are just STUNNING. I must check out that book next time I see it... even if just for one pattern, those are stunning. I can't wait to see how they turn out!

You are my enabler. Everytime you start something new I feel this incredible urge to go buy yarn and make the exact same thing! The yarn you chose looks very good with that sock pattern!

I *love* the socks. I'm curious whether you're altering these socks to fit your exact measurements, or whether you figure they're stretchy enough to work out in the end, especially with the elastic. Having never been able to buy knee socks or thigh-highs that stay up, I'm leery of making them. I know you down-sized the Norwegians with a finer gauge and added elastic.

And to flog that Heirloom Knitting horse, I wonder, too, if the price of a lace book needs to be a bit more, considering the market is relatively small.

(By the way, my name is Frith, not Jody. But thanks for commenting on my note.)

Just wanted to leave a comment to say I recently started reading your blog, and it is truly one of the best I've come across. Your pictures, writing, and of course, KNITTING, are all wonderful to look at! Keep up the great work!

Wow- you have such elegant taste in knitting! Everything you do makes me drooool.

Thanks again for the tutorial- I hope to make some yarn on one of my days off next week. :D

Gorgeous socks.... hmm, I bet I have something in the stash that would work... who needs Christmas presents, anyway? Hmm.

dude, I never doubted you. These are going to be the coolest, ever. I'm terribly excited for them.

Indeed, no hyperbole is possible about those socks. Oh hell. Now I suppose I'm going to have to buy Socks Socks Socks.

These are beautiful. What yarn did you decide upon? Just gorgeous!

I would love to know how it is going with these socks, and what yarn you changed to if any. Currently in the planning stages of recreating a pair of over the knee stocking with attached tie garter to go with my 16th century Flemish re-enactor outfit. Sould close to the same gauge I will be working at. A few people I've met have gone as far as 15 sts per inch. **faints**

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Jennifer

Hi Eunny, can I inquire about the yarn you chose to use for these (the lovely burgandy for the Austrian socks).
