Clearing out the sock queue

Obviously, with new sock yarn coming in, I need to start clearing the current socks in progress out of the queue. These are the socks I started on vacation in April.

They are made of sport weight yarn, so are a little heavy for summer, unless I get some Birkies. Note the wildly mismatched fraternal striping. I couldn't have made these babies match if I tried. Here's how much yarn I had left over.

Today, I finished the first Tofutsie sock and cast on the second one. The yarn is splitty and pools funny, but the resulting fabric is really nice. THOSE will be summer socks. I'm also working on another sport weight sock in Opal 6, and the Rockin' Sock Club Sock Of Doom. That would be the February sock, the one on 00 needles. And, I have another square for the Greensburg Project in progress.

Katie is delighted, as usual, by all of the activity.

"Get these things away from me."

Great looking socks ... I, too, need to knit some on the three pairs of socks I have on needles. One pair is almost completed, one pair I have a magic loop with about 1 inch done on both socks, and the other is on dps. Now that school is over, maybe I can get more done.

Nice Sox, Miss Cheryl

Mamateja, I'm looking forward to seeing your own mad sock knitting skillz in action this weekend.

Justin, Thank you, and thanks for stopping by.
