    Have a wonderful weekend! I think my Caps curse is finally broken so I’m fit to return to hockey games this season. Did you see that a group in Columbus (they’re on Ravelry somewhere) is doing a “Sticks and Stitches” trip to a Blue Jackets game?

    well, you caught me! i wear only a few pairs of knit socks with actual shoes…… I wear them mostly alone around the house. I just don’t want to mess them up! is that so silly?

    ah, my favorite sock topic, as you know! :) i have taken to wearing my socks around the house without shoes. although that may seem like a “waste” of long hours of sock knitting, they make me feel funky (because of the colors) and luxurious. occasionally i do wear them out with crocs.

    Sadly, I’m under podiatrists orders to only wear sneakers with orthotic inserts. Those aren’t the best for showing off socks, but I did manage to find a pair of sneakers last year that resemble Mary-Janes and those are great for showing off socks.

    I have those same leopard print flats! They are the least practical shoes I own and I love them!!

    I have totally struggled with this concept…How to best rock the sock and shoe combo. I am excited to see the suggestions!

    I always wear the socks I make (well if I don’t give them away that is). But unfortunately, I don’t have a pair of shoes that really showcases them like your mary janes. I’ll have to keep an eye out for some good footwear to go with my socks!

    i admit to being a bit of a show off with my socks but i also wear them shoeless around the house…thanks for including me in your set :)

    Have a great weekend. I have kicked the weekend off mith some mexican food and margaritas. I usually wear socks indoors, but some are just to indoors and some are used in sneakers and other shoes.

    [...] Lolly asked on her blog today about what shoes you wear with your hand-knitted socks with? I have a growing collection of converse boots (I even wore converse at our wedding reception) and I am trying to make matching socks for all my boots, this is newest yarn I have brought to go with my (RED) converse.

    These photos are making me realize how uncool all of my shoes are. I must fix this and fast!

    So I have this pair of shoes that I like to wear when it’s cold out…they are perfect for handknit socks…. When it gets cold, I will bring them out..maybe I will have a pair of finished socks by then…maybe.

    I have a blog post showing off the shoes I bought specifically for wearing my socks with. It is at: http://craftycarolyn.livejournal.com/26873.html

    Love those pics, I am forever amazed at the versatility of hand knit socks!

    have to admit that mine are usually hidden.

    Mine are pretty much strictly for wearing around the house. I should probably stick to sports weight but don’t. My handknitted socks are the first thing I put on when I come in the house.

    i wish i had shoes that would show off my handknit socks :) but i really just try to wear them as much as i can in the winter, with boots + regular ol’ shoes… i do pull up my pants leg quite often though and make e admire them :)

    The thicker ones I’ve knit so far go into boots and closed-up shoes, or are worn around the house. Very very comfortable (now I have to knit more, I want to wear them all the time), but a bit thick and too much for “dressy” shoes. I am working on my first pair of thinner socks (for me – although the yarn is a DK weight, rather than the laceweight I know many work with) with a simple pattern, and I am trying to figure out what shoes I can wear them with, to show them off!

    I have been known to pull up a pant leg and say, “Look at my socks!” to a friend or two after finishing a pair – even standard 2 x 2 leg ribbing deserves some applause! :)

    Mostly I wear my socks with brogans, or oxford or loafers, so people don’t generally see them. I do have two pairs of heavy, clunky mary janes that work with socks, but they’re not work-appropriate. I actually saw a super cute pair of Dansko mary jane clogs which I think would be PERFECT to show off some socks!

    Lolly, your pictures are always the best. Each one showcases your handiwork differently, its like the socks have their own personality.
