"Simply Ginny" Sock

UPDATE: Congrats Debear62 on winning my first annual "Name That Colorway" contest! This skein is officially called "Tutti Frutti!" I want to thank everyone for participating! It was a really close one...which is reasonable, since all of your ideas were awesome! You all have made this week really fun for blogging! Debear62, please email me your shipping info ( so I can send you the skein as soon as I get back from my camping trip with my fioncée's family.

Huzzah! She's finished! (Thanks to Mr. "Paci"...right?)
This knit was soo fun! I love trying to capture book-movie elements.

On this heel is ribbing. Nope, your eyes are's really hard to see in the picture. Don't call the eye-doc yet.

Almost the same view, right? That's probably because I can't decide on things lately...first yarn colorways, and now picture views. It's probably because I can't quite capture what it fully looks like in real life (and what the heck is that supposed to mean anyways, "real life?" It's not like this is fake. lol. Ok, that's enough philosophical thinking for tonight.)

There will be a pattern up on this one soon.

I used 100% merino fingering-weight wool on this sock, using my colorway: Ginny Weasley.

On a funnier note, my blog friend Kate was right. We definitely have seen it all now.
BTW- this is post 101!

Not a bad colourway. Looks cute for the pattern. Keep it, we'll extend the leg so it's a full size sock. Maybe add something to the back if you make the leg longer. I think I have a colourweay in mind that would work. =)

I didn't mean a cable, maybe something lacy. It's hard to replicate a colourway I never dyed. I'm having a little bit of a problem right now because 9/20 skeins of sock yarn sent to me at under 8oz. . . . and I'm mad because 2 of them I dyed up. Hopefully Sheila will get back to me tomorrow.
The colourway can be similar, but not exactly the same. I dye differently than you.

Lovely colours! I'm a Ginny and I always joke that I'm a Weasley at heart! I love the cute little cable pattern!

The sock is so cute I hope you do share your pattern!

I saw Black Sheep and it was just crazy. Very funny and bizarre.
