Sheep May Finally Safely Graze

What's this? Miracle of miracles, the Sheep May Safely Graze Socks are finally all knit up. And they fit!!! The white Cheeky Merino Joy matched perfectly with my handspun. The handspun is the sock roving blend by Greenwood Fiberworks in the Enchanted color way for those who may wonder.

I'm really happy with how they turned out. All the ripping paid off and I'm certain that they are going to be a favorite pair just as soon as we hit sock weather again.

As for the pictures, Connor and I went out for an evening hike and I thought I'd bring along the camera and the socks to see if we could find a good place for pictures. At the top of the hill is a bench, which was the only place where I could put the socks on and not immediately get them dirty.
Not pictured: The swarm of bugs that immediately landed on us as soon as we stopped moving

We waited for everyone to leave so we could take the pictures. It's always a little hard to do sock pictures in public if I'm the model. I feel weird and people always stare. I mean, I would too if someone was taking socks pictures. But probably because I'd want to know what pattern they had knit.

These socks are perfection! I really need to finish mine finally, I left them lying around after just finishing the leg. The colourwork was going fine, but the leg turned out very roomy and I think that is why I abandoned the project. But seeing yours finished is a great motivation :)

I like the pictures! The bench makes stripes that are very visually striking :)

Fantastic! I would stare too, but mostly to catch them at an appropriate time to tell them how beautiful their knits are!

Hello Audry from Paris, KY. Your mother-in-law told me about your book and blog. We were wearing our farmers' ball caps and attending a Bourbon County ag. meeting. Info on your blog was the best piece of information I gathered at that meeting. I'm planning on knitting a pair of Sheep Will Safely Graze socks!
