ta-da!

Here they are! Twenty-five new mini-socks/stockings that I knit for Socktoberfest! Add these to the few I knit last year, and that's plenty for an Advent garland and some gifts. I'm so glad that I did this as a knitalong on Ravelry, because being part of a group really upped the mo-jo for me to keep going. :) Here they are for their formal photo-shoot. Aren't they cute?! ;-) Now, to figure out the garland part... finger-knitted chain? ribbon? 25 mini's on a small tree? Oh, what fun! Then the hard part... what to put inside each one??? Any suggestions? Please?!
I'm off to make this yumminess for my family and a friend's, so I'd better sign off. Feels like November outside, doesn't it?

yum! i just finished making a pot of tomato bisque for my family and a friends' (even though i should be painting!). the socks look fabulous and might look good hanging from a "twisy-twirly"....filling them is a bit trickier (a tiny hair clip for hana? a guitar pic for koji? have a great evening!

Darling socks! Maybe a trip to Peaceable Kingdom for stuffers.

If something 2"x3" would fit, I have a couple of stuffers for you! I'll bring them next week.

Sooo cute! They look great!
In a moment of facing reality, I have moved the end date for my minis to the end of November. Seeing your cuties really spurs me on. Ooh, great suggestions from the other commenters. What about a note in one of the midway stockings for a little mini scavenger hunt?

These are sooo cute!! I just want to tickle the little toesies that would fit in such little socks. I know, I know, it's for a garland but just the thought of those little toesies! <3

Oh! How wonderful these socks are! Love the idea of a garland. You've actually made me want to knit a sock garland now, which is pretty amazing!
Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)
