The second pair is knit with Fortissma Socka Mexiko Color in yucatan.  Started July 21, finished the 31st.  Details here.

Happy knitting!

So glad to be back after missing June socks.  This month I finally finished Turbulence by Cookie A in Soctopus colorway River Styx.


I'm so glad to be back on track after missing June!  I finished these early in the month but forgot to post.  Although the pattern calls for STR medium the pattern is stretchy enough to easily accommodate the lightweight sock yarn.

Pattern: Redbud
Yarn: Socks That Rock mediumweight in Budding Twig
needle: 2.25mm


Magically 28

I wish it was in age LOL!

Wee socks this time. I like to keep a few pairs around for gifts. I have enough yarn leftover to knit a baby hat too.

Magic 28 socks I love all the different ways you can customize them.

Happy Sock knitting everyone!

As for the KAL and blog, I'll still be here as long as people want to knit socks! Will do some sidebar cleaning up in the next week or two. Unless I hear different from you guys, I'll keep your name there :)

Solar Flare Socks

I love these socks!  They were made of  Colinette Jitterbug 100% merino wool yarn in the colorway Fire.
I really, really had intended on knitting more socks this month, but one of my sons is having a big wedding at the end of August so I've been dealing with bridal showers, buying clothes, making spa appointments,  and organizing the rehearsal dinner.  Thank goodness I'm only the mother of the groom!

July 2012

I started these Ginger Socks in May for a KAL with Verybusymonkey but didn't finish them until this month. Love the way the pattern and the yarn (Dream in Color's Smooshy in Summer Sky) look together. I used size 1 needles. Happy Knitting, Renee' aka yoyosocksister

Afshari Socks for July

These are Afshari socks from Silk Road Socks by Hunter Hammersen.  They are made from Araucania Ranco, Color 101 on two size US 2 (2.75 mm) circular needles.  My photos don't really show it, but either the dark or light shade seems to be predominate on the wraps in the two major sections.  The heel and foot are knit plain.

My first socks for SAM (and only my third adult socks ever), thanks for letting me join in!  I converted the (very simple) pattern to knit from the toe up and I'm not super happy with the heel but they do fit and they are such a pretty color...too bad I don't own any clothes that color.  I could have made the cuffs much higher since I only used about 60% of the skein, but I have to admit that I got bored and wanted to move on.  And I think I need to invest in some sock blockers.
Completed: July 13, 2012
Pattern: Honey Badger by Irishgirlieknits
Yarn: Pagewood Farm Yukon in Fuschia Fizz

July 2012 --- Dragonfly

Pattern:  Dragonfly Socks

Yarn:  Pagewood Farms Chugiak Sock Yarn

Colorway:  Lavender Fields

This is the most fun I've had knitting socks in a long, LONG time.  This pattern is awesome.  I wish I would have added another repeat to the leg (I had PLENTY of yarn left over).

Oh well --- live and learn, right?
