Offer: Hand-knit socks
Beth spinning
carbonel wrote in accessiblehouse
I'm offering to hand-knit a pair of socks to the winning bidder's specifications, both pattern and choice of yarn (the latter subject to availability, of course).

This link shows most of the socks I've knit already, but here are a couple of examples:

I can knit in either men's or women's sizes.

Bidding starts at $20, but I'm not going to do the Bazaar Socks (that second picture) unless bidding gets up to $50, because those take about five times as much work as normal socks.

Auction goes to 11 pm, Monday, April 20.

Beautiful! Just commenting for now, as I have no money for bidding *yet* (come on, tax return!)

And just for everyone else looking at this, socks are So Much Work, and the ones pictures are excellent examples of hand knitting (especially the bazaar ones, OMG).

Knitting geek Q: Those are unblocked, right? I haven't finished my first pair of socks, but what I have finished is kind of shaped like the Bazaar socks.

Thanks! The socks are all unblocked, but everything I've read about socks says they don't need to be blocked, because they should shape themselves to the foot of the wearer.

The Bazaar socks are made with an 80% cotton, 20% wool blend, so they don't stretch the way the others do.

Socks shaped to the foot == precisely what i'm going for by knitting my own. ^_^

The colorwork decreases the stretchiness too, right? I did some colorwork gloves and they weren't very stretchy either.

Yes, the colorwork makes it thicker and thus less stretchy.

And congratulations, you win the auction.

Let me know when you've made the payment, and then have Seven e-mail or call me and we can discuss design and materials.
