Socks and Surgery

Hey all. Missed you. I've been reading but not posting much. We've been busy around here...and so the knitting has suffered...but I do have a few FO's to show you. SAM4 KAL has kept me motivated to keep up with making a pair of socks a month...this month I squeezed in two pairs though and cast on for a 3rd!







Specs:
Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch
Yarn: Trekking XXL in Color #101
Needles: Susan Bates Aluminum DPN's Size 1
Size: Woman's Medium size 8 64 stitches

I LOVED working with Trekking. It never split, worked up beautifully and the stripey affect was so neat to watch as it knit up. I will definitely use this yarn again.

The other pair I completed was for my new niece, Kylie!





Specs:
Pattern: My own
Yarn: Leftover Yarn Pirate Rosie from my Charade Socks
Needles: Susan Bates Aluminum DPN's size 1

My next pair are for the Football Along at Ravelry. I had Scout custom dye some Philadelphia Eagles yarn for me last year and I'm finally knitting it up. I'm definitely going to knit on them tonight while I watch the Eagles plays against the Steelers!!

It will be quiet around here for a bit again. I'm having surgery tomorrow and will be mostly offline for the next week or so. Hopefully I have a few more FO's to show you then!
