I Name Thee Hydrangea

So here are some more shots of the Bloomin' Feet socks for my pal. I have some goodies all together but I'm also creating a special bag to put the socks in and I haven't quite found the material that I want to use. Maybe I can stop on the way home at the fabric store. Photo shoot location is a little park area near the house that was created as part of a neighborhood kid's Eagle Scout project and is literally across the street from our house. I've always thought the statue was very Savannah'ish and heavily on my mind as I re-read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."

Pattern: Rock the Stars from Scout's December 2006 Indie Swag Club
Yarn: So as I said earlier, I used Black Bunny Fiber in a colorway that Carol didn't name so I dubbed her "Hydrangea."
Needles: 2 size # 1 Knitpicks circular needles. First socks using 2 circs...I'm a convert!
Modifications: I only knit 7" for the leg rather than 8", also Eye of the Patridge rather than the Knit 3, Purl 2 rib. Love this pattern by Stefanie Japel! I also got her "Fitted Knits" over the weekend!

More later on my weekend knitting gathering and my almost finished Poppy (2 more rows on the back, 3-needle bind off for the shoulders, attach the sleeves and crochet the edging and she will finally be DONE!

    That colorway does look like hydrangeas. I'm in love with those socks. I especially like them next to that statue.

    They are lovely! And I love the statue...I totally see why you had it on the mind when reading Midnight...
