This truly is SOCTOBER month

It has to be! Guess what? Today I finished 3 yes 3 pairs of socks! I’m so happy!!!!! I feel so very efficient and it is also a relief to get those off my needles and deminish my pile of WIPs!

And in spite of actually finishing 3 pairs today, I still have 3 pairs in progress! I think I most be a total sucker for knitting socks ­čÖé

So drum rolls please (I think they are in order today)……

Here come the pictures

www.knittinginfrance.com┬áThese are knit two at a time using the Kate Atherley method where one sock is inside the other. The yarn is Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Rainbow.

www.knittinginfrance.com┬áI really love how the yarn tuned out. This is a pattern I just made up as I went. These were supposed to be my travel socks but I was so excited about the yarn that I cast on before travelling and ended up knitting on them so they stayed home. I showed you two skeins of yarns I think, that I dyed as a test and I sold one and kept the other and I think I’m going to try to repeat this colorway and create more like this because I really love how the yarn knits up.

www.knittinginfrance.com┬áThis is the pair I’m happiest about finishing because these have been on my needles for way too long. I had actually finished one sock and the other I was one pattern repeat + toe away from finishing. So today I finally did it! And I’m so happy! The yarn is hand dyed by myself and this is a 100% BFL I think and I love how the colors are together and I’m just so happy I managed to finish a pair with this much stranded colorwork. The pattern is called The Philosopher’s walk socks and is free on Ravelry.

Wow that feels so good! To actually finish 3 items and see the pile of WIPs diminish! I need to continue on my path to finishing WIPs so I can cast on some more!!!

Like I said before, I still have 3 pairs on the go and the one I’m most excited about finishing is the Strawberries and Cream socks by CC Almon. She designed the pattern using my yarn and I dyed up a special color way for this pattern that I call Strawberry Frappuccino. CC’s pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry and you can find it in her patterns shop – she is CC Almon or JavaPurl.

Here si where I’m at now and this is my first sock

www.knittinginfrance.com┬áSo I’m done with the heel and beginning on the leg. If you are interested in knitting these and maybe even use my yarn to do so, I would encourage you to participate in my giveaway if you haven’t done so yet.

That”s all for today. I hope you are doing fine and enjoying your new week. And I look forward to being back tomorrow to announce the winners of the Giveaway (and don’t forget that even if you do not win, you will still get a discount code to use in my shop).
