I need to knit socks...

Ever since my friend Ellene Warren introduced me to sock knitting I need to be knitting socks. I may have other "major" projects going but on the side I'm knitting socks. After the last pair I finished my "Christmas Socks" I thought well I'll just take a little break from knitting socks.

I missed having a little project in my purse just for those little "sippy" opportunities to knit. Like waiting in the dentist office, or at the dmv....oooh the dmv I shutter just to write those words, I hate the dmv but that is another blog story. So another pair of socks got cast on and voila:

This is yarn I picked up at Stitches from the Heart, it is Soy Silk. I'm not sure what that means exactly but it's soft and a bit bulky for socks but a nice pair for summer/California winter, if it ever warms up again. Right now it is cold here in Southern California we are having a real winter. This morning the back yard thermometer measured at 38º for us that is very cold.

Next socks will be wool warm socks for sure.

Happy Sock Knitting and I'm counting down the days, 4 months 6 days till I go on the Sea Sock Cruise.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Ana! Love the new socks.

Everyone is so crazed about knitting socks. I have knit exactly 3 socks in my life.

OK, I'll give it another try. There's got to be some reason everyone's doing it!!!

Okay, Ana, blame it on me! I trust you would have found your way to socks even without me, as they are just too much fun!
I am now working on a pair of socks with beaded cuffs for my Koigu pattern collection.
Have a Merry Christmas!

I love the way the colors swirled on your socks. Very nice! 38 is cold.

Merry Christmas to you!
