Look what's in my garden!

A pair of Gnomes, garden ones at that!
Gnomey Socks pointy hat or beard though!

They have a pair of heels, not a bad color match either!

Of course we gotta have the toe pic! do look a bit strange though ;)
Toe pic!
As you can see, I'm a bit "particular" with self-striping yarns, I really can't let them be, I "have" to make them match as much as possible.

Of course, JSSBO!
JSSBO...what else!

They loved visiting my garden

sKNITches Syncopation in Garden Gnome
2.5mm circular, ML of course :)
3 x 1 rib with afterthought heel in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Bark (I really didn't like the base of this particular skein. I have a few other skeins of this brand of yarn and like the base. This is way too skinny for me! Oh well, it works for the socks though :)
Knit for SAM 10 and sKNITches Summertime KAL oh and just to wear too :)

Happy August!

Great socks!I admire your tenacity to get the stripes to match. I'm never successful with this so I go out of my way to not have mine to match. Either way socks are great knitting fun!

Damn, until you didn't point out I haven't seen boobs in toes! Damn again!
But stripes are really lovely!

Wow! Fabulous job matching up the stripes! What a perfect name for them. They certainly do evoke garden gnomes.

Very gnomey indeed! Now lets hope the laundry sock gnomes don't steal them!
