    Gorgeous!! What is the origin of Rimefrost?

    First let me say all your knits are absolutely beautiful. I’m not big shawl person, but I really love to look at them. My question is…Is there a reason other than just preference that you stop the instep patterning at the start ball of the foot on your socks instead of after the ball of your foot just before the toes?

    these are gorgeous! of course, i already have two pairs of (your) socks on the needles, and a pile of newly-acquired lace yarn wanting some love, so they may have to wait awhile…

    Another GORGEOUS project!!! Thank you

  5. Kim U says:

    These are beautiful! I’ve got the perfect yarn for them, too!

    Anne- Those are really beautiful.

    I was reading the previous post, and I feel the same way about the seasilk- it evens smells like the ocean.

  7. Jody says:

    Love the socks! I’m glad you got to try seasilk. I did a shawl with it a couple of years ago, and loved it. I have one skein of Peridot to make something with-I started a scarf w/it and changed my mind and it’s still waiting for inspiration. I’ll have to see how your new ‘not so secret’ project ends up!

  8. Hattie says:

    Love love love…MINE. Now I have to figure out what yarn I will use…

  9. Nancy says:

    Lovely, lovely. Although it looks like Spring here near Pittsburgh, snow is now being predicted for Tuesday/Wednesday so we’ll need all these fantastic socks and sweaters!

  10. Kim says:

    These are so HOT Anne. I love em. I am going to make them as soon as I’m done with my other gridiron sock. One down one to go!!! No SSS for me now!! I have these beautiful flower socks (sorry – can’t think of frost in San Diego!!!) to look forward to!

  11. Helen says:

    Oh wow, they’re very pretty. I can see several pairs of these coming off my needles this winter (Australia – so ours is on the way).

  12. Lesley says:

    Beautiful pattern! But I see poinsettias – knit in a bright red for the holidays!!

    Very pretty. I love the color. The pattern resembles abstract window frost.

    These socks are quite a lot like Stephanie van der Linden’s Esther socks (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/esther-socks) … Sorry, just had to let you know …

    Beautiful. They look like socks for fairies– in a good way. I think you mean “kudos” to Rachel, not judos, though….;-)

    What beautiful socks, Anne! I’ve just finished the legs on my Bougainvillea socks and will surely cast on for these next. I adore your patterns.
