Getting Ready for Winter

What??? Who wants to think about winter now? Not me, that's for sure. But I know it will come soon, sooner than I want it to and I am getting back to my wool sock knitting. I sort of took a break from knitting for a couple of months.

Here is the pair I had been in the middle of working on and now they are completed. The colors in this yarn are rich and gorgeous and look much better in real life. They are lovely mossy greens with touches of golds and purples.

And here is the next pair that I've started.

I think I have about six pair ready to start wearing right now, and I have about 6 or 7 more skeins of yarn to knit yet. I have no idea how many pairs of socks I'll end up making as I love to sit and knit when sitting in front of the TV. Which I haven't done at all this summer...sitting in front of the TV that is. But now, every Thursday evening, Project Runway is on again so I will now have some knitting to work on while watching all the drama.


  1. great socks! And that yarn for the next pair is divine!

  2. I passed up some wonderful homemade mittens while on vacation and the weather was in the 90's. I am regretting it now when I see your cozy socks. Just could not get my mind around winter coming back at the time.

  3. No can do! but I am glad you can do!

  4. Super socks! You will have the warmest and prettiest tootsies in all of ND !!!!

  5. This morning on the radio, I heard Frosty the Snowman--the point was to think about winter ... after 51 days of "triple digit temps" so far this year in central Texas.henes
