The finished Peppy Long Stockings


For any of you that feared I might be wracked with malaria or some other such disease, fear not. I've been fighting a fever, cough and general run down feeling which may possibly be strep throat, but I've been taking it easy and getting lots of rest, and am already starting to feel better. Saw the doctor on Friday and will know on Monday if it's strep. As a side note, does anyone else have the hardest time with those giant q-tips being jammed down their throat? Man alive!

Between vegging out on the couch watching cartoons, and sleeping, I was able to snap a few photos of my Peppy Long Stockings in all their glory. Here are the pattern notes as well.
Pattern: Peppy Long Stockings
Designer: Me (but based on your every day toe up sock with short row toe and heel)
Yarn: Unknown. It's a self striping sock yarn but I've long ago lost the label. It came in a 100 gram skein, 94 grams of which were used to make the pair of socks. If anyone recognizes the yarn, please let me know.
Needles: Started as 2 socks on 2 circs, switched to DPNs, all in size US #2

I didn't do any shaping in these socks and they fit fairly well. They are a touch baggy at the ankle if I stand on tip toe, but otherwise look pretty cute.

It managed to work out pretty well with the toe, heal and top of the socks coming out in red. It wasn't planned, but it is exactly what I'd want to happen.

And what's a photo shoot without my little glammor girl?


ugh! it sounds like you've had a heck of a time since returning. even still, you finished up the socks! i love them.

i'm curious though -- is it ever cold enough in southern CA to wear knee high wool socks?

Socks look great! And I'm sure Panda's glad to have you back home!

I hope someone recognizes the yarn because I am so in love with those socks.

As someone who gets strep 3-4 a year for whothehellknowswhy, I can wholeheartedly agree that getting jabbed in the throat with Q-Tips sucks.

I am able not to gag now, though. Practice, Practice. That sounds dirty.

If you have white spots on your tonsils, you probably have strep. I always know when I have it, doctors HATE when you diagnose yourself, especially when you're right. I get a kick out of it.

My husband suspects he has strep right now...I'm sure I will be right with you soon.

Feel better!

So cute! It's amazing you were able to get so much sock out of 100g.

The knitted stockings are so cute (love the colors), and of course Panda is absolutely beautiful. :) Your pics always make me smile. :)

Glad you're starting to feel a little bit better. The socks are fabulous!

hope you feel better soon.

How fun! I wish I could wear something like that.

Alas, I lack the funky gene!

Hope you get to feeling better soon. Did they give you abx while they are waiting for the strep culture?

long time reader, first time commenter... i hope you feel better soon! and i always enjoy an adorable panda picture.

your socks are gorgeous and fun, and i believe i might recognize the yarn - could it be one of the Lana Grossa Meilenweit jacquards? take a look here

i made some stripey knee highs out of just short of one entire ball of the fantasy jacquard, which you can take a look at if you click on my name below

Glad to hear you doing ok! Great socks.

glad to hear you're starting to feel better. I'm pretty sure that the yarn is Opal, the black dots on a white background sections sort of give it away.

Very cute! I hope you're feeling better - we missed you yesterday!

how on god's green earth did you get 2 knee high socks out of ONE 100 gram ball?! I am in awe.

IloveitIloveitIloveit! Aaagh!

Cool socks! You should totally wear those to work with a suit:) I made a pair of knee highs awhile ago and I love them. I really need to make another pair and you have inspired me:)

Looks to me like Socka Mexico. I used it for a pair of socks and it came up with similar colours and patterns to your amazing stockings.
