Wool Socks, Warm Feet!

I love handknit socks. So does LD. The red/black ones on the bottom of the pic are hers. I finished them last night, and she's wearing them to school today.
I've been able to wear a brand new pair of socks to knitting every week for three weeks in a row! The stripey ones are jaywalkers, the yarn is some Opal sock yarn that I got from LarjMarj. Pretty springy colors! The greenish/blue ones are Killer Zap socks, and I used Lion Brand Fisherman's wool dyed with kool ade. These are so warm! (Amy's patterns are awesome!) The blue ones are a worsted pattern I found somewhere online. Just a little cable, but I can't remember where it came from I do know that they are Paton's worsted weight wool.
LD's socks are the Killer Zap pattern with black Paton's wool and red/purple kool ade dyed LB Fisherman's wool.
You can also see my tidal wave socks that I knit from the ToFutsies that Rhoda sent me.
I want to knit more socks, but I have to make another pair of slippers. My SIL sent me some wool, and she will get a pair of slippers soon, but first I have to go mop and vacuum again. Last time I wrote that I was going to clean the floors, it worked, I did it, so before I touch those needles and cast on I am going to clean the floors and start some laundry. Man, my life is soooooo exciting!

Knit on!!

What a wonderful array of sock pictures and works to be admired!

The blues in the center row/right are about the length that one of my dds likes best, too. Her socks go lots faster than DH's boot Usocks. hehe
