Circle Socks Completed

This is the 9th pair of socks I’ve made this year.  And, if I’m trying to finish one pair per month, you can see that I’m one pair behind.  I can get caught up because I have one pair of socks that has one sock completed — a purple Zora.  On another pair, I have one sock completed and am down to the heel on the second sock – using the Simple Skype Sock pattern.  I should work on the Simple Skype socks tonight and tomorrow and then have them done by the weekend.  Maybe I will.

There are the blue/yellow socks that I’m working on and I’ve probably knitted about three or four inches down the leg on those.

But, the Circle Socks are completed.  They were fun to knit.  These are a gift and I’ll probably make another pair for myself.

That’s it for Soctober, 2012 for me.  I made two pairs.

If you made socks during Soctober and want to share a link, feel free to do so.  If you made several pairs and they’re all on separate blog posts, add as many links as you need so we can see your accomplishments.

Socks #8 Completed

As Soctober, 2012 winds down, my 8th pair of socks for 2012 has been finished.  The 9th pair only needs the toe on the second sock grafted and I will get that done this afternoon.

The yarn is Opal, though I can’t remember which Opal it is.  The pattern is the plain Jane pattern I use so often, which is based on my version of Classic Socks for the Family by Yankee Knitter.

I used 2.25 mm needles for this heavier yarn to make a very dense pair of socks.  These are a gift for a friend who travels way up north quite often and I think they’ll come in handy for her.

Vince’s Version

Just to prove to you that life is anything but normal at our house, tonight Vince and I were talking about my Little Red Hen blog post.  He looked at me funny and I said “You don’t know the story of The Little Red Hen, do you?  He assured me that he did know the story.  I said . . fine, tell it to me.

First, he told me that she went to town with the three little pigs.  No, Vince, that is not correct.

Then he remembered . . The little hen was real pretty and thought she could get everything she wanted because of her beauty.  No, Vince, that is not correct either.

I had to read him the real story about The Little Red Hen.  I surely hope he remembers it this time.  I guess when I’m reading kid stories to Adalina some day, I’ll have to make sure Vince hears them too and we definitely will not let Vince tell her any stories!
