Sock Busy

We have been busy around here at our house. We are in the process of getting ready for school,we also went on a short vacation and some knitting is getting done as well.

After almost four months, I started them May 2, I have finished my Malabrigo Mockery socks. I finally sewed the toe on the second one this weekend. I have absolutely no idea why this pair of socks took me so long to knit. I loved the pattern it was super easy to memorize and I like how it turned out. I loved the yarn, how can you not love anything by Malabrigo????

It may have been all the spinning I have been doing this summer, I have spun at least a pound of fiber so far. I spun the yarn for this pair and finished them while we were on vacation last week. I knit the Baby Cable pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks and I knit them with the Riverbed Pattern pathway from New Pathways for Sock Knitters. The fiber was from Gale's Art in the Wildflower colorway that was one of the limited edition Siblings.

Since I finished the other two pairs, I needed to start another pair for mindless knitting. This is the Twin Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks and I am using Brown Sheep Luxury Foote sock yarn in Black. These are being dubbed the Boring Black socks which are going to go live with the Boring Brown socks that I knit back in May.

I'm feeling a bit like an underachiever now.

Great knitting.
