My Foot is Here!

My first blog post! I love knitting socks, I love colours - the brighter the better, hence the name of my blog. I do knit other things as well, but my passion at the moment is socks. I'm particularly inspired by the amazing Norwegian/Fair Isle designs on Ravelry at the moment. I hope to be casting a pair on my needles very soon. This is a very quick post to get me into the swing of things and to see what my blog looks like when it goes 'live' - how scary!

My foot arrived this morning, well it's a display foot for my socks. It's all very exciting as I don't have to try photographing my feet at sorts of funny angles.

Here it is in all its glory. The sock pictured isn't quite finished yet....hopefully today.

Regular updates on my current knitting projects and dyeing exploits coming soon. I hope I don't bore you too much!


  1. Hi Karen, I love the foot!! I was just thinking how much better it would be if I didn't have to try wearing and photographing socks at the same time:-) Where can I get one?!

    BTW, I love your name! Happy blogging!!

  2. Oh thanks Elaine! In my excitement I forgot to post the link - it's from an Ebay shop called The Bigger Shop. I will try and find the link and send it to you.

  3. Thanks Karen, a link would be great. I love the clean look of your blog - it makes me feel I need a revamp:-)
