Fast Post - Finished Socks!

Last night, rather late, I finally finished the Personal Sock Club September edition:

Those are my old standby, plain vanilla pattern, this time with a 2x2 rib edging at the cuff, all toe-up socks. The yarn is Austermann Stepp in colors I'd have never bought if they hadn't been drastically reduced in Knitters' Knook's going out of business sale last year - because there is ORANGE in it. Guess what? I love, love, love these socks!

Knit them on my newest Knitpicks Harmony, 16-inch circulars, size 1.5. (I buy them periodically and these are so nice and smooth!) I started this edition of the sock club quite late, September 20. I had to frog the first one because for some reason, I was knitting them too small. So I've knit almost three socks in just over a month.

Now, I'm taking a bit of a break on socks. The original plan was to knit twelve pairs from stash over the 2009. I've already completed thirteen pairs, but two of them were new sock yarn bought this year. So I suppose I really only need to knit one more pair of stash yarn before the end of 2009, even tho' there are still three bags to open!

But you know what? I mentioned last week that my sock mojo is MIA. It is. I'm tired. I have a hat to finish for charity, the Spiralucious mitts, a large project or two already OTN, and a couple or six holiday gifts that I'd like to make. Not to mention a sweater, maybe. So we'll see...

Take a sock break. Sheesh. ;)

Wow, that was a big order! Sweet!

And you know, sometimes you don't eat ENOUGH pts. It is, weirdly true.

Aw, the fluffy kitty! He was so cute! (I'm catching up - first fun and then the flu. Boo).

What fun and delightful socks! You deserve to take a break, especially having finished an entire winter's wardrobe of socks already this year.

I love those colors! But I agree with Carrie, a break may be called for. That sweater is calling... ;)

Hey, you get to choose. Your rules, your yarn...take the ball and go home if you want to, as it were. Just remember to have fun!

Love the socks, by the way.

(Sometimes I get this "OpenID error", and have to sign alternately. Y'all still know it's me, eh?)

Great socks! I'm not a huge fan of orange either, but it can really make blues and fuchsia pop!

You should knit what you want to knit. The sock yarn will keep.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
