Here’s some wild-caught boot socks (not the farmed variety. )
Edit In 10/15 : Now, the day after, I can tell the world these were made for my ten-year-old niece who just turned eleven yesterday ! I stuffed them with retro candy and she loved ’em!
I’ve been sketching with some DK yarn bits in my stash drawer. Total improvisation of color stranded motifs. Like fly-fishing for wild trout, one listens closely to their instincts .
Just a wild pair of boot socks, playing with color and also functional design. I talk about this process way back in this post
These would pair well with hiking boots or big ol’ clogs.

Upcoming: I’m working on the last of the size-run test-knitting and then pattern for PrettyLittleThings socks should be making an appearance! I got sidetracked with some other knitting projects, but now there’s nothing standing between me and the pattern. 🙂
These are darling! I feel so lazy that I haven’t made some of these for myself out of my “collection of left overs,” I’ll put this on the gotta do it list!
Carol… ya gotta do it… make yourself some wild socks !
Amazing socks and what wonderful boots, too!
Thanks ! Those boots are not for what the socks are designed (more for hiking boots).. however, just thought I’d say the shoes are ‘ Sax Fifth Avenue ‘ , got at Goodwill for 4bux… one of my better finds. 🙂
LOVE the wild colors! Especially in contrast to your lady boots. Darling.
Ya know, I forgot all about those boots ! Hid ’em away in the Loft closet and just forgot they existed !!!
Oh, and Jen, now that I’ve discovered them, I have decided that they will at the very least make lovely photographic props ! 🙂 xx
These are amazing socks! I love the colors, the height of the socks, and the coziness. 🙂
Thanks Simone ! 🙂 xx
Ooooooo I do like those socks!
Thanks Brighid… they were really fun wild things to knit. 🙂
I LOVE those socks. Wild and crazy, fun and whimsical. I think they are perfect for boots, any kind. Those are just darling, and I’d love to see the pattern!
Oh thank you… but Martha… there’ll never be a pattern for these…maybe something like them at a later date. xxx:)
Where is the million-love-button? Absolutely gorgeous. I love your sense of colors. She is one lucky tween to have a wonderful, loving, thoughtful aunt 😀
Well then, thank you sisterly friend pro-knitter, that sure is a compliment coming from you ! I’m sure Nina will love them too. 🙂
