Well, no ribbons for my socks this year. But I’m really glad I tried. I didn’t get to see them (we went away), but C & E checked on them for me. The feedback I got was that the ribbon winners were more colorful as well as textured, and done with very fine stitches. So, considering these were knit on 2.75mm rather than 2.00 I can’t complain. Like I said, I’m glad I tried.
I’ve been working on some gifts, so I’m hesitant to blog about them yet. However when I need something small to work on, I’ve been pulling out the Double Eyelet Rib socks from Wendy. She’s been busy creating a bunch of wonderful patterns available at the Loopy Ewe. Unfortunately, they are currently out of stock, but they’ll be getting more soon.
Here’s how the Double Eyelet socks are looking these days:
It’s amazing how much these socks stretch.

I’m shocked your socks did not win a ribbon. They are stunning.
Jenn, the Double Eye-lot socks are postively gorgeous! I can’t believe you didn’t win either! Oh well, at least you have a rockin’ pair of socks!!!
