Rock It Like It's Socks!

I seem to be trapped in this sock knitting alternate universe where all I want to do is knit socks. I'm sure it has nothing to do with my glut of sock yarn and fabulous patterns (like this one and this one). I just want warm feet. I wanna play with bamboo sock yarn! And crabby goodness!

So feast your eyes on Christmas sock #1 to be given to an undisclosed foot.

You may remember that I had plans for this pattern the next time I knit it. I'm happy with the effect of carrying the faux cable through the toe decreasing. I really hope it works for the right sock as nicely as it did for the left. I'm using Lorna's Laces Tuscany colorway. It comes highly recommended.

I'm still monkeying around with Monkey. It's not on my Christmas sock radar so it's been languishing while Titania flourishes.

I whipped up this little baby sweater in between sock rounds. The pattern is from Mason-Dixon Knitting and I used some Mission Falls cotton from the stash. Cute. I'd make it again.

Thanks to my model, Pinky Rougebottom. Your time and energy are appreciated.

Pinky looks lovely in the sweater - she knows how to work it.

And those socks ROCK.
