30th Pair Of Socks



This is the 30th pair of socks I've completed this year. Not all have been for me...I've knit some for both my kids, my sister, and her daughters (they will have them soon). What we see here is Meilenweit Fantasy #4833, 68 stitches on US1 dpn's. With 1x1 cuffs and 3x1 legs and insteps. And did you notice? They match perfectly!

I also (finally) put thumbs on the Fetchings but I didn't take a picture of them. Mandy has decided she would rather have the new mitts I've started in some Knit Picks sock yarn so I will be giving the Fetchings to my co-worker tomorrow for her birthday.

I have also finished the first sock in the second pair of Sock Monkey socks. I still have quite a bit of the Trekking left (so I'm pretty confident that I will have enough to finish the pair).

Well that's all the knitting news for now. Have a great week. More later.

Wow--30 finished pairs!!! How do you get the second sock done ineach pair? I haven't figured out how to do that yet--LOL!!! But I do plan on finishing my pairs as soon as I get my Harvest Sock Swap pal's sock finished, and maybe AFTER I cast on a Victorian Swag--LOL!! Thanks for your comments on my sock...
I will let you know about the yarn shop!!

30 pair of socks? You're my hero :-)
I'm taking a tiny sock break to knit a few bags and my first pair of Fetching, but then it's back to socks for sure!! I am LOVING having them on my feet!!

If I didn't have six skeins of socks yarn making me feel guilty for being over-indulgent, I would order myself some of that beautiful yarn right this minute...maybe I'l wait until this weekend. (LOL)
