I met my Socktoberfest objectives for 2006! I love making socks!

First here are Blue Baby socks. Started on Oct 15, finished on Oct 16. Gotta love 1 night projects. And these are sooo soft, made with Sirdar Snuggly on 3.75 mm needles. I grabbed the pattern from this site: North Country Cotton Baby Socks

Second, here are the completed Father & Son socks. The yarn is Essential Tweed from Knit Picks in Inca Gold and the pattern is Father & Son socks from Interweave Knits Fall 2006. This picture doesn't due these justice because they are the softest wool socks I've ever felt. These are a present for a friend of mine but I got Troy to try them on just so I could see how they look on a guy, and they are manly when worn. Definitely a pattern I will reuse again.

Third, but not least, are completed Lobster Pot socks in Fleece Artist merino in Moss color. I test knitted these socks for Chrissy who has a new website up where you can purchase this pattern. I had a great time making these, even though I didn't quite follow the pattern. Apparently when looking at the chart I somehow developed a reading problem and missed a big part of it. This was definitely no fault to the pattern, it was written very clearly. They turned out beautiful even though I need glasses and are really comfortable to wear as well.

In addition to those completed items, here is one Broad Ripple sock (altered for fingering weight) and a started Jaywalker.

So many socks! I'm impressed. Broadripple looks so pretty in that colour.
