One pair of socks finished!

Yay - I LOVE these socks! Debbie O'Neill's Licorice Twist in Dream in Color Smooshy Licorice Twist (from The Knitter's luxury SOTM club). Aren't they gorgeous? The cuff is very cool.

DIC Smooshy is a 450 yard skein - I probably used 350-400 yards of the skein.

I also have started my annual Boston Red Sox "good juju" socks. Hopefully it's helping!

I've turned the heel on the first pair. It's a plain vanilla sock (zzzz) using Lorna's Laces "Loopy" colorway. Each skein is about 215 yards - I bought three skeins because it's for my younger son and his man-sized feet!

Go Sox!

I also have started another SOTM club offering by the Knitter. The name of the pattern is Autumn Leaves Socks, also by Debbie O'Neill. The yarn is Classic Elite alpaca sox in the Harvest colorway. One skein is 450 yards. I changed the cuff a bit - it's now just k1 tbl, p1 as I didn't like the cuff that was part of the pattern. I think these socks will be warm - nice for our NH winters.

Lastly, I started a flap cap for my nephew, Joshua. It's made from one skein of Malabrigo worsted - one skein (which is about 215 yards). Aren't the colors fun? I made flap caps previously for my boys and they loved them - hopefully the nephews will as well! This pattern is Mighty Mitts and Flap Caps by Cottage Creations - I LOVE this pattern!

Wow, way to go. Adrienne see people make socks in pairs. The Autumn Leaves is a very nice sock I like wearing it.

Oh yes - two socks does finish up nicely *grin*.

I'm looking forward to finishing autumn leaves. The pattern looks complicated but once you get going, it flows pretty nicely.

I LOVE the cuffs on the socks as well. You have some great projects posted. I love it! (nope, I'm not a sucker for socks or anything!)
