As Predicted...


...I finished the Victorian Swag Socks on Friday. They are so pretty, I can't wait to wear them. I knit them in Trekking 04 (this pattern is so pretty in a self-striping yarn).
So this pair brings my total for the year to 32 and it is the 5th pair completed in October. I might be able to finish another pair by Wednesday...





but I've started another pair in the Claudia, Monica gave me last year, in another of her patterns. This one she designed for Cherry Tree Hill's new Sockittome line of yarn. They bought the pattern, but Monica doesn't know when it will be available from them. So keep an eye out for it, it has been wonderful to knit (even if I can't get a good shot of the design and the correct color of the yarn).
Speaking of Monica's patterns, a new supply has been put up at The Loopy Ewe ( I know, shameless plug, but there you have it).




And here is the sock I started in the Trekking I won from Barbara...I'm knitting it in the Cedar Creek pattern from Blue Moon Fiber Arts (it looks exactly like the Diagonal Rib pattern at Interweave Knits though).

I can't remember if I showed this sock before... I'm knitting the Twin Rib pattern (from Sensational Knitted Socks) in the Los Angeles colorway of Wisdom Yarn I bought last summer. It's a kind of fuzzy yarn, but I think it will be a nice pair of socks.
I've been wearing a lot of my new socks recently as the weather has decided to catch up with the calendar. It is hard to choose each morning which pair to put on though...what a dilemma for a girl to have. Well, I think that is all for now. More later.

Ooh! I like the Victorian Swag socks. I almost bought the pattern, at Loopy Ewe, but then I saw the "Karen" socks, and I think I must have that pattern too.

You are a sock knitting machine. I have not seen the Wisdom Yarn anywhere before that is a very pretty color.

I have faith that you can get another pair done.

All the socks look great. Wish I had time in my day to be able to knit more. Who needs sleep right?.

I like how your Victorian Swag socks turned out!! They are so pretty! I got one of mine done and posted pics last night too. I'm going to do a pair in the Trkking 181 colorway as well--wonder how they'll turnout...Way to go with 32 pairs so far this year!!
