South African Socks

Jess from Tat-ilicious asked me to make socks for her fiance in the colours of the South African flag. Here they are, temporarily displayed on my husband's rather lumpy feet. How did I do the toes? I did the top part first, working back and forth in rows, using three little balls of yarn. Then I did the underside, knitting the last stitch in each row together with a loop from the upper side. Fiddly, but effective.

On another subject, twice this morning I have tried to comment on other blogs and had my verification that I'm not a robot rejected! Perhaps I'm a robot. I may go back to Jon's blog, but am not going to go back to Tatting Fool's. Luckily both were very short comments.


  1. Love the socks! I'm almost in the mood to knit again... almost!

  2. I love them! I am so excited about the socks! I'm going to have to get a picture of all three of us together wearing our special socks. :o) Thank you again for doing this for me.
    That's too bad about the commenting, that's why I don't have that pesky verification on my commenting. My glasses broke a while back and seeing is already a task. :o)


    1. They'll start their journey to you next time I go to town.

      Since it's possible to vet comments before they show, I can't see the necessity for the verification.
