On My Needles–Socktober 12th

I’ve been making lots of progress on my socks that I posted last week.

I’m nearly finished my hubby’s socks and will be starting the ribbing soon.  These socks are so soft and fluffy and I just love them!  I almost hope hubby doesn’t like them so that I can wear them when we are watching TV as more of a slipper sock LOL


I’ve also turned the heels on my uncle’s socks and am making really good progress on them.  These are my first pair knit for the Opal Socktoberfest Challenge.  Gotta love the way the yarn stripes!


I also started a test knit for fingerless mitts last night and am nearly finished the first mitt.  Love this cable look without using a cable needle!  They will be nice an toasty with the DK yarn I’m using….


Be sure to hop on over to JudyL’s blog to see what’s on everyone else’s needles….

Cozy socks for the up-coming Season. Nice to see progress. I have to find me a Easy Sock Pattern and try to make me some. I'm just starting back into my knitting and am very rusty. I need lots of practice.

Those socks DO look comfy. I can see sitting with them watching TV too. What is the name of the fingerless gloves that look like cable stitches. Those are lovely.
