A Serious Case of Sox Pox!

Yes, I admit it…..I am addicted to socks!  I started a Toe-Up Sock knitting class 2 weeks ago and have knit 7 socks since the class started!  Today was the last class and I learned how to do a stretchy bind off so I now have 7 finished socks and the 8th (second half of the 4th pair) is on the needles now.

This is my 2 weeks of knitting….


I love these socks and I promise I’ll be back to quilting again soon :)

Wow -- I'm impressed! My fastest pair of socks so far was 3 weeks...

Can you tell about the yarn you used? I especially like the stripes (on top) with little flecks of color, and the reddish ones further down in the stack.

Wow. You are fast (and maybe truly obsessed?) I've been wanting to try knitting socks toe-up ... I even went looking for a pattern to day. I think socks will be my next knit after I finish the Brandywine Shawl (which, coincidentally is knit from sock yarn ;-)

How fun, I do the same thing, go off on a tangent and when I get my fill go on to something else...great job!!

Yes, tell about the yarn you used! I can't believe that you have that many done! Are you a speed knitter? lol

And how do they FIT? :)
