Opal Knee High Socks!!!!

Oh how I wish I could keep these. I would wear them to shreds, but they are a gift for another.

first blog post ever!…..and it’s about socks of course.

Hello to all and any who are interested.  I decided it would be fun to share my love of sock knitting with the world at large.  So here goes…..as you can see in the pictures I have a rediculous amount of socks knit up, many of whom are orphans and need a mate.  Maybe if I blog about it, I’ll be inspired to knit all those second socks.

The sock on the needles is a quick plain vanilla sock in Zitron Trekking XXL (color #100).  I’ve had it in my stash forever and have always kinda hated it, then I was perusing ravelry and I saw that Susan B. Anderson had knit a pair in the same yarn, and so it inspired me to knit this up.  I knit alot of it, just in the car waiting line to pick up my kids at school.  Great commute knitting!

yesterday, I received these gorgeous hanks of sock yarn in the mail!  I scored it from a ravelry destash. (by the way I’m lovesockwool on rav).  It’s Claudia Handpainted Sock yarn in the Watermelon colorway.  Isn’t it a sweet hue?

I’m thinking another pair of vanilla socks are in order with this yumminess.

Another skein I’ve always longed to add to my stash is Dream in Color Smooshy’s Butter Peeps.

I’m thinking a nice squishy pair of Harris Tweed Socks would be a nice pattern to knit this deliciousness up into. 🙂

So, that’s all for now.  Are you a sock knitter?  If so, tell me what you have on the needles?  I think I usually have about 8 socks going at any given time, and I’m okay with that.  I used to feel guilty about it, but I’ve embraced the crazy. 🙂  Creating things is part of our God-given qualities and it should be celebrated.   I don’t know how often I’ll post on this blog, but I’ll try to regularly.  I’m a newbie.  Have a great weekend, and I hope it’s full of joy, sunshine and maybe some socks?
