The Socks Are Done


My Peppermintoes  socks are done, I'm all set for Winter! The original pattern has a longer top and uses triangles to fill in the gaps at the top, but I rather like my zig zag top. 

There were a lot of ends to sew in! If I'd had my wits about me, I'd have knitted the ends in. As it was, I found needle and scissors and had a dedicated sewing session. 

The socks look quite strange when they're not being worn, but they fit me well and are very comfortable.

On another tack, I was sorry to see on Facebook that muskaan is not well. I did wonder if she was alright because I haven't 'seen' her lately and she is normally an active member of the blogosphere. She asked that people don't email or message her, so I'm saying here that I hope she'll soon be feeling better and able to get on with tatting again. 


  1. I have been eagerly following your progress on the Peppermintoes socks as I am also knitting a diamond pattern. Your socks look so wonderful I now want to knit a pair for myself!

    1. Oh good! I’d love to see your diamond pattern. I hope you’ll knit peppermintoes too.

  2. Those are really interesting socks!!! They look fabulously warm!! :)

  3. Wow, Love your socks and they fit your feet perfectly ❤️
    I am so humbled by your post, Jane, thanks 🥰
