Hand Knit Socks Rock

WaaHoo, my socks are done! Isn't it funny how the stripes don't line up! And I love how the right sock has just the seam stitches in white.......I don't care, it's not like I'm going to wear my socks with sandals.

Judy L is hosting a Sock Knit Along starting November 1st. I plan to use this wool to make Ernie a pair of socks. I have never made him a pair so I need to earn some good wife points. I'm thinking I hope he likes them but then again if he does, he'll want more.....such a dilemma I am creating for myself.

But first I need to finish these so I can use these circular needles. These are for me. I'm thinking I need to find a new pair of shoes to wear them with.

LOVE those socks! I so admire your flexibility... the Type A in me always MAKES SURE that I start in the same place on both socks so the stripes/colors exactly match. Now I ask, "What difference does it make? Who is really going to see them when they barely peek out between the bottom of my jeans and the top of my shoes?" But I still have to do it.

You're going to have to really get crackin' on those socks to have your needles free and clear by Nov. 1! Happy knitting!

Great socks! I'm working on a pair that doesn't seem to repeat, so they will be "odd" socks too. I wear them with Birkenstocks and who cares? Not me!!! I figure it shows originality. Or is it mental instability?
