Summer socks

It's summer, and the sock knitting continues! I'm not cranking out socks the way Wendy is, but I seem to always have a pair on the needles. Sometimes they languish, sometimes they progress very quickly. At any rate, socks seem to be the *only* thing (knit-wise, that is) that's getting my attention at the moment.

Another pair of Trekking socks (#107), newly-finished and ready for fall. What's funny about this pair is that my daughter asked, "Didn't you already knit a pair of those?" as I was workig on this colorway. She was remembering my Trekking 100 socks, which are a bit similar until you see them side-by-side.

In other knitting-related news, I'm having fun playing on Ravelry. What a great place! I'm still in the process of logging all my past projects, which has led to lots of time spent updating photos on flickr, looking up yarn specs and generally spending hours of my time playiing online. Oops! Guess the housework will just have to wait...again.

I love the new socks. But every time you post Trekking socks it makes me want to knit a pair of Trekking socks, too.

Amazing how wool can look summery, with those juicy colors. I feel the need for some stockinette socks like yours!

Oh, I'll look for you on Ravelry too.

Jealous of Ravelry - haven't gotten my invite yet:-(

Love the socks! I love to see beautiful yarn without a lot of patternwork - basic, beautiful, good old socks!
