I promised my boyfriend socks for Christmas. You know how it goes Tongue Suffice to say, it was May when I finished the first pair and I dove right into the second pair! The yarn is Nova sock print in earth tones as seen here on Diamond Yarn.

And then, joy of joys! The sweet woman who gave life to my lover GIVES me all her sock yarn odds and ends!

I promptly made her a pair of "crazy" ankle socks as a thank you gift. I neglected to take a photo, but I learned a lot about how to manage multiple balls of yarn. I use Silver's two-at-time on one circular needle method, and managing 4 balls is intense! I did make another similar pair for me Cheesy

I'm almost done another pair for my boyfriend, too!

A sock spree indeed!. So warm and cosy.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

These are very pretty!  The first ones reminded me of zebra print from the thumbnail. Smiley

Sock knitting is addicting!  I always have a pair on my needles!  Don't forget to knit a pair for yourself!  Nice work!  Love your crazy odds and ends socks!
