I'm in! I'm currently on my 4th and 5th pair of socks for '08 (3 pairs of finished plain stockinette socks - one pair each for hubby, DD and a pair for myself).

My two pairs in progress are a pair of Monkeys (one repeat and toe left to knit on first sock) and a pair of Jaywalkers (half way done the leg). I'm hoping to have the whole pair of Monkeys finished by the end of next weekend Smiley

Like something I've made? I'm always up for personal swaps - just send me a PM!

i'm in! Smiley

i'm actually on the second sock of my first pair ever!
i'll try to take pictures later this week of the first sock and my progress on the second.
i must warn you though, they are very boring and plain.
i'm already vowing to never make such a boring stockinette leg AND instep ever again!

so far I have gotten my socks both onto one long circ, and am knitting them both at once using Magic Loop.  I'm just about to start the heel.  how are everyone else's socks comming?

I'm finally working on the heel of my socks.  I didn't knit all weekend.  but they're getting there.  how's everyone else's comming?  any pics yet? I can't wait to wear mine.  I'm hoping to wear them out on valentines day.  I'd better hurry huh?!

I finished my socks tonight! even have them on my feet right now. but I can't take pics until my camera's dead battery is done charging.  they turned out pretty good for a first pair I think,  I haven't blocked them yet, and I did get a little "laddering" from using the circular needle.  I think I should've used a longer one.  but since they're lacey socks it doesn't seem to matter too much. Smiley  I'm happy with them.  I'll post pics when my camera is operational again. Smiley

Hey! Finally stopping back in.. Yeah I got 2nd sock syndrome... but was helping my fiance's mom cast on/work on a toe last night for the same socks I am making, so it has made me (finally!) want to finish sock 2! So I think that is my project for this morning Smiley
Glad to see everyone's socks going well, and that mooshie's sock yarn finally arrived!! YAY!!!

Hey all!  I think I am going to join my first KAL!  I just learned to knit a few weeks ago, and I just finished my first sock! Yay!  I decided to start small with f.pea's footies ( http://fpea.blogspot.com/2007/04/free-pattern-friday-footies.html ).  I'm using Paton's Kroy in tutti fruitti jaquard and it looks great!!!  I just finished weaving in the ends and I am about to cast on for the second sock...I've been warned that if you don't cast on right away you never will!  I will post a pic as soon as I find the cable for my camera....I think I may have to clean to find it  Undecided

I am so impressed by your knitting skills. Although I have been knitting for decades, I have never learned to knit in the round, nor can I do grafting. BUT I love knitted socks, so I make the cheater's version - knitted on 2 needles, with the toes cast off and sewn together. I know that the circular, grafted versions would be much sleeker and more elegant, but I still love my socks.
        I am waiting eagerly to see  photos of more socks.
