Knitted Soap Socks

I'm heading out the door in just a little bit for a very brief trip to Salt Lake City. Before I go I want to show you two more soap socks I knitted recently.

I really love making these and giving them as gifts. This pattern, Fish Net Soap Sock, is from a small collection designed by Barbara Scoville and published by The Heirloom Knitter in a small pamphlet style book called Heavenly Cotton Soap Socks...and More. It includes four patterns for soap socks and two patterns for french hand mitts. I found it at Black Sheep Wool Co. which is coincidentally in Salt Lake City. Hopefully I'll have time to stop by on this trip and maybe buy another book or two. I always find something interesting in this shop and it's very close to our hotel.

  6. So sweet and such a cute fast little gifty. How'd you manage to find the exact color of ribbon to go with your cotton? Hm? Do you have Mother Magic too? heh

    When my kids ask "how do you do XX?" my response is always "Mother Magic." They get tired of me always saying that so I started saying "M.M." Then, knowing I'll just say the initials they put their hand over my mouth and I make a muffled "mmm...mmm..." sound. hehe
