Sock Progress & An Award

By Leigh

First, progress on my latest socks .....

Second, an award from both Minikat and Sharon.

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!”

To think about what that actually means makes this award quite an honor. In turn, I would like to pass it on to Renee, Jackie, Bonnie, Bettina, Dorothy, Sue, Peg, and Susan.

Your socks caused me to chortle out loud in sheer delight, so I could see that you truly deserve the proximidade award. And then I saw my name among the recipients!! Muchas Gracius (sp?)

Aw. shucks. Thanks you!

Woolly Bits said...

the socks look cool - I think I have to make a red pair for myself! and thank you for the award, Leigh - huh, now I really have to do more on my blog - attack of bad conscience?

Julie said...

Love the socks! Congrats on the award. And thanks for all your help.

Thanks for the award!!! I really appreciate it!!

I've been thinking about those socks of yours - so it's great to see their progress.

I've been thinking of them because my one left-over skein of sock yarn, that I was knitting into a multi-directional diagonal scarf - is turning out to not be enough yarn.

So I'm thinking if I bought one more ball, I could have socks that are almost as cool as yours! (Well, I'd have to knit them - which might take a long time!)

Thanks for the award & the sock update!!!


Dorothy said...

Thank you for the award :) you are most kind.

Your socks look good, very neat knitting.

I just knitted a pair that are much too long in the foot, don't know how I got it wrong, but I should have tried them on!

Sharon said...

Those socks couldn't have turned out better. I am absolutely astonished at the patterns you got by using the two yarns together. I guess toe-up is the only way that would work. Well, you've piqued my interest - I got lots of partial balls of sock yarn and after July, I'll have time!
