Socks and Chanel!

Right now I am busy crocheting my cousins baby christening blanket - I decided to go with white and baby pink pearl yarn, the blanket is made up of miniature granny squares joined together with a cable stitch to give the view of patchwork - I am 75% done and to be honest I am boooreeed of it! So I thought ... Socks! I haven't made them before and have always wanted too! So I am leaving my next project in your feet  hands!
Just comment below on which sock you like best or which would suit "me" more and the highest votes wins :)




Anyone who knows me well, knows I LOVE Chanel, My favorite perfume is Coco Chanel (thanks Morg) and my favorite bag is my little black Chanel (how many times have I wrote Chanel now?) my bag however is a fake! shock horror! but I still love it, so you can imagine my delight when I saw this:

That's right! a Crocheted Chanel bag! I couldn't help but feel like we were made for each other, that was until I saw the price tag! $2000 ... which brought me to this conclusion ... "Where is my Hook?!"


  1. Definately A) pretty girl love ya!

  2. Very elegant! I like the first sock, by the way!

  3. Or you mixed A and C. ;o) I think mens don´t like kneesocks, but i love the zig zag socks. ;o)

    What mean you?

  4. Hiya Neen, I think the first socks are the best. :) Love that Chanel bag, but $2000, wow, how much! Are you going to have a go at making it? xxxx

  5. I think the blue socks (c) are the best! they look like the most fun.

  6. Well, I don't want to be disagreeable with everyone else, but I love "B" Thanks for stopping by my blog, yours is great!

  7. Hi Neen, I saw your comment over on Carmelina's blog so thought I would stop by. Since this is my first visit, I don't know you very well, but I love those first pair of socks. I must say, I am quite amazed at all the crochet work you did for your wedding. Everything was so lovely! And the fact that you went to the nursing home after your wedding tells me alot about your spirit. Hope you are having a great day. Many blessings, Tammy P.S. I have no doubt you can replicate that purse. $2000 is outrageous!

  8. oh i personally like the first pair..the red ones...they look like they'd be the coziest to wear on a cold day!

    and that crochet bag...$2000...that's outrageous!
    you can pull that off with your hook..i know I could! hehee.....

    get busy girl, you're like me, work on many different things at once...and get bored easily with really long projects!

    ciao bella

  9. What a lovely blog. I found you Neen over at Tammy's and glad that I stopped by. Socks are great! The bag though, I can't wait to see what you are going to do and I'm sure you will after I saw all the wonderful wedding crochet you did. Beautiful pictures! Going to look around. Have a lovely evening.

  10. Hi again Neen, You can add music as a gadget. If you go to the bottom of my sidebar, you will see my flashwidgetz gadget. You can go there to create an account and choose your music, then copy and paste the code. It's easy. Lots of folks use Playlist, but it won't work on my side of the world. I have a blog buddy in Australia who was using flashwidgetz and it worked for me. Yea! Give it a try. BEst wishes, Tammy


Thank you for the comment - I will always try to answer them here, Have a lovely day xxx
