Socks rule!

I had a pair of socks that I needed to finish. They're for an imminent birthday. So I did that. And then I thought maybe I'd try to make a pair for someone whose birthday I missed. Those aren't done yet. But I'll have some photos once the two pair have been gifted. Socks aren't really all that interesting as photo subjects. Well, maybe Mr. Flood could make them interesting but I can't.

Now I'm back in a sock knitting mode even though I have lots of other projects in the works. I kinda blame it on Susan. She's been involved in Socks Wars and is now doing the 52 Plunge. (Sorry, I haven't taken the time to search for links.) Anyway, there have been lots of sock patterns floating around, including the new book The Eclectic Sole. And, as it happens, I have a bunch of new sock yarn.

A is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Champlain Sunset.
B is Cascade's Heritage Handpaint in 9926.
C is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Champlain Sunset. I think that one is mislabeled. The color looks more like Spring Frost. And the yarn may actually be a silk/merino blend.

A is Chameleon Colorworks Bamboo in Moss.
B is Chameleon Colorworks Footsie in September.
C is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Magnificent Meadow, a colorway dyed exclusively for Unwind Yarns for their Half the Sky Foundation fundraiser.

So much sock yarn, so little time.

Wow you will be very busy knitting a lot of socks. I have seen quite a few patterns that I would like to try too, although they will need to wait until after I finish off some other items first. Those new sock yarns all look so nice too.

Wow, I love all the colors in that last picture. I would use that palette for decorating my living room!

And I haven't forgotten about the Noro swap. I've been under the weather and just sleeping whenever I'm not working. Sorry!hou

Go ahead...blame me...see if I care! By the way, I am officially dead as an hour ago.

Yes, that is absolutely Spring Frost. Believe me, I know, I am a CTH addict. But it does look like sock yarn to me. Why do you think it is a silk-merino blend? (Lovely as that would be, are we engaging in some wishful thinking here?)
