I made a few changes to the pattern, as you can see from the pictures and, much to my surprise, Mr RH decided he’d have them to wear about the house so I made a few changes to the sizing as well. Unfortunately, Mr RH is not here today so I’m having to model them myself with some extra pairs of socks underneath!
If you have any yarn projects this week, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). Visit anyone else who links. Wishing you a happy and creative year :)

Those socks are so impressive. I'm half way through my first ever sock would you believe. Do you strand the wool across or is that what you call intarsia? Either way a fantastic finish (and no, you can never have too much wool)

I LOVE your socks!! My mom always knits me slippers and socks and I literally wear them out I love them so much!
Of course you can never have too much wool Janine, what a strange question :)
The stockings look really good a fab pattern.

These socks are darling Janine. You are so very talented. I wish I had something to share with you today but no wool projects right now… Soon! Have a wonderful day. Karen
Oh wow…..those socks are amazing….all that intricate fair isle pattern looks perfect. You are very clever, Janine. You will never get to make other 'stuff' now as everyone will be clamoring for a pair of these.
Fantastic socks! They look so warm and comfy! Too much wool? Only if you have clothes moth in the house!
They look amazing.
I've been thinking, recently, how best to focus my energy. I've come to the conclusion that I should concentrate my energy on two things: 1) whatever makes me feel best while I am doing it; 2) what is most practical and necessary. It sounds like wool is practical and necessary in your house, and I imagine you find it quite enjoyable to use, too :) So, YAY for wool!
I love these socks!
Wool is never enough :)
Oh those are DELICIOUS socks! I don't think you can have too much fabric (I insist, actually!) and equally, I don't think you can have too much yarn! Besides – both are great for insulation in cold cold weather – and they make a fine focal point in a room, tucked into baskets and other pretty holders ;)
Those socks are truly a work of art
You made those socks?! They are truly amazing!!
they are really cool socks! What a fab pattern

Wow! Awesome, I heart them and they do look very useful. :)
We have a lovely yarn shop close by, but I am avoiding it at the moment for the obvious reason :) These socks are so beautiful!! I am not surprised that Mr. RH wanted the pair :)
