Summer of Socks???

I seem to be on a bit of a sock knitting binge lately.  My last three finished projects have been socks.  This is a pair of plain vanilla socks made from Nashua Best Foot Forward in the Berry Cobbler color way.  I used size 0 Hiya Hiya DPN's.  Started June 1, 2010 Finished June 16, 2010.

This is the pair I cast on last night, the marker is where I started this morning.  This is Colinette Jitterbug in Mardi Gras.  The blue isn't quite right it have more purple and greens mixed in with it.  I am using two Knit Picks Options circulars in size 1.5 and the pattern is Stansfield 196 from More Sensational Knitted Socks.  I was afraid that the pattern would get lost in the funky yarn but I can see it pretty good so I will continue on.

I am thinking this handspun will be my next pair.  It is Gale's Art BFL swirl in the Grace limited edition colorway.  I really enjoyed spinning this and I am excited to see how it knits up.

I'm so far behind on blog reading. Everything looks great! That silk you're spinning is gorgeous.
