Leyburn socks in STR lightweight, Garnet Dreams colorway.

Charades in STR Mediumweight, Jubilation and
Forward and Back

Madmoon's Progress

Lacy Mock Cables
Originally uploaded by madmoon

Pair 22 finally done. That took forever...or at least it seemed to. I don't quire recall when I started these and of course I forgot to write it down. The pattern is Lacy Mock Cable Socks. I had started a pair of plain toe up socks when I fell in love with the pattern after finishing a pair of socks for a friend in this pattern. The yarn is KnitPicks Felici in the Hummingbird colorway. Onward to pair 23 :)

New Year's Resolutions...

I think we are about halfway to 52 weeks and EEEKS!!! I am very far behind. I have some sock orphans...they have no mates. I am resolving to finish some of my UFO's. I have a sweater due to my LYS by Valentine's Day that is about long enough for a Barbie at this point. I have comitted to 20 minutes of knitting for Socks for Solciers. So here is my next pair for 52 PPII. I just gifted these to my friend, Cheryl. They are made with Galway on size 4 needles.
Back to knit a bit!

Pairs 4-15

Hmm... I guess I'm doing ok with the sock knitting but not too well with the posting.

While moving cross-country and since then I've knit a few pairs of socks - I'll post pictures of a couple but all of them are on my blog.

The socks that drove across the country with me:


The Kauni rainbow socks:
