I have finished a mere 4 pair. The first finished were the ONLine Beach socks, just plain stockinette stitch and a short row heel. This yarn was on sale at a wonderful price to just try it out. I don't know if I will buy more of it though. There were several breaks in this yarn, I think 4 in the second sock. That alone is enough to make me not want to buy more. I love the colors though.
Second off the needles were the Koigu socks . I have named these Pretty in Pink. The color # is KPPPM147. I won this yarn in a sock knit off a couple years ago. I can't wait until it is cool enough to wear these. I want to make another pair, but with yarn that has more yardage. 350 yards just isn't enough for a nice length leg for me, since the foot has to be so long.
The 3rd pair, were knit in the Online Supersocke 100 in the Afrika color, also bought on sale at SSYC. This yarn feels pretty much like Opal. Again a few breaks in the yarn, so I didn't even try to get them to match. I used my Tiger Socks pattern for these. That is a Ravelry link, you can also get it on the Free pattern pages at The Loopy Ewe or on the side bar of my blog if you are interested in it.
Then last night I finished these. I don't know what the color is, but the yarn is Mountain Colors Bearfoot and has been cast on so many times for different socks, I have lost the label. It is predominately reds, with blues and greens. I used the Broadripple pattern, (Hi Rob!!), for the leg with added stitches to make a 64 stitch sock. I knit the foot in stockinette stitch. I bought this yarn from ThreadBear when they were still here in town. Someday I will get to the shop in Michigan.
I have one sock finished in the HipKnits Ophelia sock yarn in the Splash color. I was not aware (I didn't read the directions carefully), of the 2 inch leg rule for the SoS, so I was quite relieved when the cuff of these measured in just at 2 inches at the tallest part of the scallops. I hope that will be sufficient. I am going to give it a try anyway. The driving daughter really likes these, so she just may get them when they are finished.
I have one pair on the needles, but I haven't taken a picture of them yet. I am knitting them in Lime and Violet Sasquatch in the Spooky Pooky color. I have the first one finished and the second one is cast on.
And for a little break from sock knitting, I cast on a pair of fingerless mitts. I am knitting these in Cascade Indulgence on size 2 dpns. I am trying to figure out how I want to finish these, and once I do they will be a pair. The driving daughter was a bit put out to model these, so I better take her to get her haircut to make it up to her. I hope you all have a great week, with a lot of knitting time.
