    heh heh, I certainly appreciate David’s ‘limitlessness’… that WAS cute! Fab socks!

  2. errs says:

    How adorable are those pictures!!

  3. love the socks but all I could think was – “wow! look how white Anne’s leg is!”

  4. Rachel says:

    I noticed that too,,, great photos!

  5. Rachel says:

    oh and socks too, of course!

  6. Jess says:

    Awwww… I love the photos. Cozy little cuddling caterpillars. :)

    Love the photos–after reading yesterday’s blog post, I can see why the neighbors couldn’t keep their eyes off the two of you. :-D I’ve ordered the Monarch kit, although I love the Wooly Bear socks, too.

  8. Jocelyn says:

    I love the flirty feet. And I, too, can see why your neighbors wonder about you guys ;)

  9. Jane says:

    I love the Wooly Bear color way. Maybe some day when I get better at sock knitting.

  10. Hattie says:

    They look great! And they really do look like caterpillars now that I see them at different angles.

  11. Valerie says:

    Wow, these are so cute! I already ordered one in the Wooly Bear colourway a few days ago. My daughters and I love to encounter those wooly bears crawling across the trail when we go hiking in the fall, so I couldn’t resist this knitted one.

  12. Lisa says:

    They are both gorgeous, I can’t decide which kit to order!

  13. Josiane says:

    That was a really cute photoshoot! Totally worth confusing the neighbours for such great pictures!

  14. Maria says:

    Something about that dark leg next to the lily white one just cracks me up! And I like the footsie one too!

  15. LynnH says:

    Awww, looks like playing footsie but I know how hard it was to really take those photos. Love it anyway.

    Congrats on another pattern. Dang, grrl… you really crank ‘em out.

    If I were your neighbor, I’d be keeping an eye on you guys, too!

    Adam has already sold out but says he’ll put together more kits afer his move, so I’m on the waiting list. Which is fine because the number of UFOs around here is kinda scary right now.

  17. Keatyn says:

    I love both of them. But I think I like the Wooly Bear one the best.

  18. Shawnee says:

    Anne, I share my life with a David, too. I’m not sure mine would be so accommodating if I asked him to sock model. Brava, Anne’s David! Really looking forward to the caterpillar kit!

  19. Teyani says:

    what great photos! And great colors. That pattern surely works up into a lovely sock -

    I’m chuckling about all the adorable photos of your foot and David’s – and imagining that you had a pretty interesting photo shoot – it’s difficult to take pictures of one’s own feet (let alone beside someone else’s) Great job!

  20. Debbie says:

    I only have one question: Can they predict the weather??! Love them!

  21. Bobbi says:

    His and Hers socks…a perfect matching pair!!!

  22. Heather says:

    awwww, snuggly little caterpiller toes!! love it!

  23. Laura says:

    Love the socks! I really like seeing them on you and David at the same time, next to each other. Very cool.
