Rockin' Winnies

I don't know why I love these socks so much.


If its because the colorway, Socks that Rock lightweight in ST-1, reminds me of Sock Summit. Oh Sock Summit, how I miss thee.


Or if it is because I'm always tickled when my STR stripes nicely. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind pooling (or why else would I have tons of STR?!), but the matchy stripes, love.


It could be because I love the toes.

I may love these so much because the colors seem to evoke fall for me. And it even rained a bit today. Fall is here!


But really, I may love these socks mostly because they match my new Dansko shoes just perfectly!

Pattern: Winnie

Yarn: Socks that Rock lightweight, colorway ST-1

Needles: US 1.5

Happy Sock Knitting!!

Your Winnie's do look awesome in ST-1! Love the shoes too. They're a great style to show off your socks and that is very important to consider when shoe shopping :-)

It is a great pattern. And your stripes are just perfect! I've considered knitting socks largely to match Dansko's!

I love your new Danskos - I was just thinking I need a new pair. Then I'll have to make some Winnies to go in them :) g

Oh, great socks, great shoes!
I finally got my order of yarn from KnitPicks so I can finish my Cotty's (yay!), then I can start on a pair of Winnies. It's so sweet that you name your pretty patterns after your aunts.

As Mary Poppins likes to say, 'they are practically perfect in every way'.

Love your socks and your shoes! Nice to see the new pattern knit in a variegated colorway as well as a semi-solid! Looks great both ways!

Beautiful socks, and what a great pair of shoes to show them off!
