It feels like all I ever knit anymore is socks, but I figure that's not the worst thing in the world.

These are my current favorite socks--I just wish it wasn't July so that I could wear them! The pattern is Ilga's Socks from Favorite Socks.

I made these for my mom for Christmas--the boys in my family have ridiculously large feet, so I usually only make socks for her.  These are the Estonian Traveler's Socks from Favorite Socks.

These were made for a friend, who picked out a difficult pattern and an yarn that wasn't really meant for socks. I think they turned out pretty well anyway and will probably end up making some for myself.  They're Austrian Socks from Favorite Socks (where else?  I swear I own other sock books...).

These are shortened Embossed Leaves socks from Favorite Socks.  I just knit the cuff and the foot portion because I didn't have enough yarn to make a full pair. These are also the first socks I blocked on my new sock blockers, and they made me love them.

Mother's Day socks for my mom, obviously.  They are the Padded Footlets from Favorite Socks without the padding part.

Please pretend that there are two of each of these socks--they're still in progress. The pink and green one was my first argyle sock. I'm making them for someone else, so I decided to also make myself some.  I used this pattern: http://www.siskiyouknits.com/grannielinda/sockarticles/argylesock.htm

The biggest reason I am attempting to learn to knit!!! Your socks are so adorable, and they look like if I were to slip them on, I wouldn't even have to guilt my husband into a foot massage

Your socks are so much cooler than most socks I see. I didn't think there were any interesting patterns out there.

I am up for a personal swap!

I love how brightly colored your socks are! I'm coveting the first green and pink pair right now.  Smiley They're simply beautiful, and make me want to try sock knitting again!

Aww thanks guys! You know how to make a girl feel special. To be honest, sock knitting really isn't that bad.  I was terrified to turn a heel before I tried, but it's pretty simple once you do the first one. Jump on the sock knitting bandwagon!
