I'm still knitting socks, in between knitting for charity and knitting sweaters for my grandchildren. Here are the ones I've knitted this month. I'll try to be more faithful in posting them as I finish.

I'm excited to say that I've already finished my March socks! I'm naming them Newport Beach Socks after the place in California where I first saw the Pacific Ocean. The yarn colors remind me of the water, waves, and sand and rocks on the beach.

Here are my January socks. They are Mint Twist from Cookie A Sock Club. The yarn is Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label Sock Yarn in Julep. It is a cashmere blend and is very soft. Felt good on my hands while knitting and they are very soft on my feet.
