The Socks of Summer

Including the 11 pair of Monkey Socks, we two knit a whole lotta socks this summer, 27 pair so far June through September and more on the needles. The following are knit from our own basic stockinette pattern with the proper number of stitches for the needles we like, dressed up with the picot beginning and most have beads.

You know, I thought I liked to knit socks, but you guys, well, you REALLY like to knit socks. The collection, all laid out here in photos is stupendous. Impressive. Awe-inspiring. I'm so thankful I've got a decent stash of sock yarn, 'cuz you'll be out getting more and may just buy it ALL!! EmBe

I'm speechless! What? How is this possible????

They are all so pretty!

It brightens my day just seeing them all lined up like this!

If I need a cheer-me-up, I'll just come back and gaze at these!

I feel like a piker. I haven't knit any socks this summer - even the ones I'm committed to, ya know? And I've only knit half of one sweater and just started another.
