July Socks Done Just in Time

I'm right in line with the BoxoSoxKal2017.   It's the seventh month and this is my seventh pair.  I wanted something that wasn't so Vanilla-y but with a pattern but not a heavy pattern.  I chose the Olympian Sock by Sharon Giles.  The yarn is Heritage Sock Solid by Cascade Yarn done on US 2.

I've always worked better under pressure so I'm thrilled, having a ball with this Kal.  It looks as though I'm actually going to churn out 12 pairs this year.





This weekend I have plans to go through my stash and figure out which yarns I'll be sacrificing for Holiday gifts.  I've made a list in my mind already.  More goals, more pressure but at least I'm knitting gifts earlier this time around.

So lovely (and pretty in pink!)...will be adding this pattern to my sock queue. The coin lace is so fun to knit.

Very pretty socks! Every time I see a lovely pair like these, I say I will try to make some...but then I don't. :o)

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I love knitting socks and just started another pair. Had I seen this post earlier, I would have gone with this pattern.

It's an easy pattern. Perhaps next time.
