Hi I have been absent for the longest time due to unforseen circumstances, but I have been knitting all the time and now I have finished 52 pairs at least. All the 52 pairs that I have taken photos of are at my Flickr album,I will continue to knit socks and will probably post again.

Here is pair number 22, Little arrowhead pattern from Sensational Socks book. Initially hated he pattern, but this week it seemed better than all the work I had to do. Procrastination?
The yarn is Knit picks Bare hand-dyed with Kool-aid lime-lemon-orange. Loads of fun!

In six weeks, I'm going to Florida for a week with my quilting friends . . . and a couple who are becoming knitters, too! I found a great little make-up bag resembling a small train case, that will hold just enough yarn, and a tiny kit containing plastic yarn needles, a tape measure, a needle gauge, a crochet hook, and also slip over my wrist. I'm determined to take only one project with me . . . of course, I will have a spare skein or two in my luggage! I'll have quite a bit of time in Atlanta. We all very carefully planned our route through Atlanta instead of a direct flight, merely for the convenience of my DSIL to connect from Dallas, and to gather up Patti, who lives in Atlanta. Well . . . DSIL got a direct flight to Tampa! Fortunately, we all arrive within a few minutes of each other, but what do I care? I'll have my knitting!

Here are pairs 11, 12 and 13. From the left, that's my daughters foot in her adaption of the feather and fan pattern that I made up myself. There is a single feather & fan pattern running down the top of the foot.
Mine are next, feather and fan pattern. The yarn is "OnLine", can't remember the color name, and the tag has gone missing. As I was knitting these our daughter told my husband (dad) that she thought it would be nice if she and I had matching socks .. so we do, sort of.
Lastly is another pair of socks for my niece for her birthday.
Pair 14 is half done. Hope to have them done by Friday, because that is when my friends exchange students b-day is. He's from Columbia, and is finding it quite cold here in Nova Scotia. So I'm knitting him a pair of wool socks. Started them Saturday morning, and toed off the first one this afternoon.

Here is Flame Wave from Fav Knits. I am a little disappointed with the pattern not showing up very well with this varigated yarn. I really need to get control of myself and buy sensible solid yarns, not the fun color-changing and striped types. ON to pair 22.....

It's been a busy few weeks, but I got these cool socks completed. Broadripple in Fixation color number 9385. Again, I am not fond of the yarn, but the pattern outcome is fabulous. So instead of continuing to try burning through stash... uhm.. I ran out and bought another color. Bad Sockergirl!

I only finished two pairs of socks this month so I am way behind again. The purple ones are Cable Rib socks from the Favorite Socks book, and the camo-looking ones are Ocean-Toes from Cat Bordhi's new sock book. That gives me 19 pairs so far. I better get moving!
