And another two....

My mom's socks. I wasn't going to post these online anyplace, but then I realized that my mom had tried the first one on already.

Opal Flamingo Socks

The yarn is Opal Rainforest Flamingo, with some other yarn from Elann for the heels and toes.

The other socks are the socks from the Sock Madness competition. I got behind on this pair, and then finished up some other socks in between. They are Wildfoote in "crystal pink" and the leftover Lorna's Laces in "vera."

Birthday/Sock Camp socks :)

Socks #75 - the Birthday Socks!

Yarn: Trekking 104
Started: 4/10/07
Finished: 4/17/07

I started these socks on the ride to Anacortes right after my birthday brunch. I knit them on the ferry, did the majority of the knitting in the Grok the Sock class that the Yarn Harlot taught on Wednesday, and finished them up after I got home.

It seems appropriate that my 75th pair, such a nice big round number, was pretty significant. Although the socks are plain and were a quick knit they definitely have lots of memories!

One of my two pairs of socks done this month.

I finished both of the pairs of socks for this month, but I'm only doing pictures of one, since the other pair is a present and I know my mom checks my Flickr account. That pair will be posted after Mothers' day.

Here is the pair I can share.
Bamboozle Socks
They are made from Crystal Palace's Bamboozle. It's basically just a worsted weight version of Panda Cotton. (I do have this same colorway on order in the Panda Cotton) They were a nice quick knit, and I used a baby sock pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks, and I didn't have to change much to have them fit, other than the yarn and needles.

Socks and Socks

Here is a picture of my new puppy baby Sokrates... strategically named, so I can shorten it to ...SOCKS ;)
