Is it too cold for Ice Cream?

No way!! In fact, it's perfect ice cream weather here in New England!! The Ice Cream Man socks made their debut at Rhinebeck.

Wendy's Toe-Up pattern, with a seed stitch cuff.
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM
Needles: Knit Picks size 2 circulars
Cast On: August 10, 2006
Completed: October 16, 206

This was my first time knitting with any of my Koigu, and I must say, I should not have waited so long. This yarn was a joy to work with, and I fear it may have ruined me for any Knit Picks sock yarn in the future. *sigh* I like having a simple stockinette stitch pair of socks on the needles for mindless knitting. These traveled with me on my summer journeys (remember seeing them at the Renaissance Faire?) and were great to work on while (nervously) awaiting my turn at the dentist's office. But of course, their favorite car ride was the trip to Rhinebeck!!

They really do look like icecream! Great job!

Okay, if I wasn't convinced by any of your other pairs of beautiful socks...this pair does it for me. Must...learn...to...make...socks. SSK and picking up stitches can't be that hard, can they??? :) Beautiful!

Wow, they are *so* lovely - I totally love the colorline, and the seed stitch cuff looks so cute! Great work!

Very nice Koigu socks! DH said something about wanting another pair of socks, and plain stockinette socks sound pretty good right about now. Who knows... I might change my mind though.

Whatever happened to your Sunrise Circle Jacket? Did I miss that one somewhere in your archives while I was MIA?
