It's Socktober :-)

As if I need an excuse to knit more socks!

Southwestern Socks

Pattern: Southwestern Socks (link to pdf file) by Wendy D. Johnson
Yarn: 82 grams Posh Emily (80% Lambswool, 10% Cashmere, 10% Angora) in Arcadia Colorway
Needles: 2 socks on 1 40" 2.75 mm needle
I can safely say, these are the softest cushiest socks I have ever made! If you want a quick pair of pretty socks, this is the perfect pattern - a simple 8 row lace repeat with sport weight yarn knit toe up on 52 stitches - these are now my constantly worn house socks - my feet are in heaven!

I have a few more pairs going too - Doubt I'll get them all done during Socktoberfest, but I'm having fun celebrating the season!

Dave's Socks

A pair for Dave - He even picked out the yarn (DIC Smooshy in Night Watch) - Classic Socks by Kristin Spurkland from The Knitting Man(ual). Plain enough for his taste and just enough of a pattern to keep my interest going - a fun quick little 4 row repeat.

Snowy Woods

My morning coffee knit - Snowy Woods by Robyn Gallimore in Lorna's Laces Tahoe and Cream. I'm knitting these for the Red Bird Knits Fall KAL and loving every minute of it!

TTL Mystery Cuff

This is clue 1 of Through the Loops Mystery Sock '09 . I'm so happy that Kirsten has decided to play again! The clues come out each Thursday in October - I really like this cuff!

I promise next post won't be socks - I have a baby quilt and some mittens to show you.
