Sock Stash Enhancement and Progress

When I went on my trip, I was on a mission to find three sock yarns that I wanted to try. I found two of the three. I found Mountain Colors Bearfoot and some Colinette Jitterbug. The one on the left and the third one over are the Mountain Colors and the Jitterbug is between them. The other hank of sock yarn is some beautiful J Knits, in the Alaska colorway, a gift from my friend Linda.

I have found myself in a position where I feel the need to finish up some socks that I have on the needles. I have three pairs going and that is a little too much for me. They are all three in the post heel turn stage so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch to try to complete all three socks this week. So by Friday of this next week I hope to have three completed socks to show everyone. I will still have to make the mates for all three pairs though. The first one here is the Mad Color Weave sock for my wonderful sister in law.

The second sock I have here is the pair for my wonderful husband. I actually worked on it a little today so I am making some more progress.

The third sock I have here is my first sock in the Summer of Socks. I have completed decreasing the gusset and now I am just working on the foot. I hope to finish this one this weekend. The fastest I have ever made a single sock is a week. I think I can beat it with this one.

Since I haven't shared a picture of Marshmallow Thief lately, I thought I would throw one in. He is growing so fast. He is almost 17 months old. It just doesn't seem possible.

Happy Knitting
