So what colour pants do you wear with those?

You know you are one crazy knitter when...
you show your sister the socks you are working on and she says...
"So what colour pants to you wear with those?"
What colour pants? I never even thought about it. Who worries about the colour pants they are going to wear with hand knit socks.
Hand knit socks are a work of art...they compliment all pant colours...or no pants at all!

electric blue

These socks say
"Look at me! I am hand knit! I feel so nice on the feet!"
they do not say
"How do I look with these blue jeans? Do I look ok...am I drawing attention to myself? How are my stitches? Are they even?"

Who wouldn't love a pair of sockettes in such an electric blue colour to welcome spring! I love wearing sockettes around the house. I inherited a pair I knit for my sister Moe. I love the cotton blend, they are my favourite. Plus they remind me of my sister. Hopefully I will get to knitting the other sock and write up the pattern so you can have a pair for spring too;)

p.s. These socks don't really talk. I haven't come across any talking yarn...I am using Regia cotton, which is a wool/cotton blend....non speaking.

I totally agree. I never worry about what my socks would match, and if they do match it's just an added bonus :)

Handknit socks go with everything. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Ha Ha Ha! I wear whatever socks happen to be clean with whatever else I am wearing. I was "dressed up" Sunday because I wore socks that matched my shawl, even my mom noticed. Of course, the fact that they were both coral did make them stand out.

Beautiful socks even if they can't talk. I really like the stitch pattern on the instep.

Nice sock, cute heel. Do they giggle when you tickle them?
My socks don't talk to me, but I think my toes do. They just thanked me for wearing hand-knit wool socks all winter.

I love it, "Handknit socks look good with blue jeans or nothing!" Hee, heee.

A lady that works at the local drug store says the socks should match the sweater. As good a reason to knit another sweater as any, I say.

Pfff... I wouldn't say that makes you a crazy knitter. I wear whatever color pants I darn well please when I wear my handknit socks. Although I have to confess I lean toward blue jeans on the weekends and therefore my blue stripey socks go just as well as the insanely hot pink ones do. I wear them with pride.
