Happy Monday!

Another Mystery

I've got sunshine
On a cloudy day.
When it's cold outside,
I've got the month of May.

Well, I guess you'll say
What can make me feel this way?
My sock. (My sock, my sock)
Talkin' 'bout my Sunset Mystery sock.


The color is bright and even a little shocking, but it chases away the dreariness of a winter's day. How can you not smile, sing, or laugh out loud when this color is on your feet?


After knitting and wearing many, many, many socks, I've become rather snobby about the yarn I use. It must hold its color, it shouldn't pill or shrink, and above all else, it must be durable. The Mystery Socks, both fabulous pair, have met my criteria. The first pair I used Kim's yarn, and this pair was knit with Judy's yarn.

This isn't the first time I've knit with either yarn so I knew they would wear and be beautiful for a long, long time. In 2008 I knit Thelonious Socks in Judy's yarn and the Mystery Sock with Kim's yarn. I love and wear both pair often. They feel good on the feet and in a year have shown very little wear. 

I've got so much honey
The bees envy me.
I've got a sweeter song
Than the birds in the trees.

Well, I guess you'll say
What can make me feel this way?
My sock. (My sock, my sock)
Talkin' 'bout my Sunset mystery sock.

Raveled Here


They are gorgeous! Aren't we lucky to have such talented friends?!? And, just so you know, when I was in college we sang that song but with the words "my beer."

Beautiful! And you are right, they make the feet SING!

You made me laugh out loud this morning. I love your song!!! I also happen to think those socks are fabulous. They are so cheerful and bright. Just the thing for those bleak mid-winter (and pre-winter) days!!!

Just listening to our forecast which is for COLD ... you'll be needing these ... sheesh!

'Pretty Feet'..now I'll be singing the song all day as I bake..'talkin' about my cakes'...

A pretty color to brighten even the grayest of days.

That was a fun pattern. Your sunny socks are terrific.

Love that sunny color!
I was reflecting on similar things last night as I hung my freshly washed socks to dry. The right yarn does make all the difference.

There is nothing better about knitting than when the yarn and the pattern SING to you! :-) What gorgeous socks. They do bring a smile!

Bright'n'beautiful - sure to cheer you on a cloudy winter's day.


And I'm pretty picky about my sock yarn anymore, too. I have a couple of brands I won't touch anymore because of several of the issues you mentioned.

Cute, and the color is amazing.

I love those bright socks! What a way to brighten your day.

Totally in love! Great pattern, great color. Glad sock mojo is back!

Haha. I think I'm gonna have sunshine all day after reading this!! ; )

Happy feet, happy feet!

I have some yarn in that color family in my stash - think it's named Butterscotch. Ah, yes - Worther's Original socks! :-)

Such a lovely pair of socks will make me happy too for sure :)

very pretty - and I love that song!
I hope that they bring you cheer all week long.

Those socks are a bright reminder of sunnier and warmer days. Perfect for a gloomy winter day.

What pretty summery colors to keep your feet warm and cheery through the winter. :)

Love your bright and sunny socks!

Song-inspiring-sunshine-y socks? Yep, your winter is going to be good.


They're so cute and cheerful!


The song, the socks and you.

Very cheery and bright! Love them.
I've got the pattern saved, but have yet to cast on. Too many projects, not enough time...
