The final pair from Socktoberfest

And may I present to you – the socks that started it all.

Ziggity Zag socks done

I am so glad I posted here about losing the sock mojo, as clearly that was the oomph I needed to get back on the sock train.

Now, if I could just get the rest of my motivation going.

But I have made just a little bit of soap.

So there is that.  I wish blogs came with smell-o-vision. (optional, of course, for the readers sensitive to smell – though I have made a batch of unscented as well)

More socks!

So, these were finished on Friday evening while Ramblin and I were in Kentucky, just in time for gifting.

Rita's Raspberry Ripples done

Both these and the blue socks were well-loved by their new owners.

And then today, I finished these.

Tropical Monkeys done

And now I’m back to working on those zany Ziggity Zag socks.

I’m so glad I posted about my missing sock mojo.  It’s clearly returned to me in spades.  This might be handy to keep in mind when I do NaNoWriMo next month.

So, these are done.

Spring Day Socks done

And I stared these.

And this.

And I thought Socktober was going to be sockless.  Ha.

Hmm, may have created a monster

A sock monster.

Spring Day Socks

These are going to be birthday socks for a very dear lady.  It’s yarn I dyed that I wasn’t too sure about, but it’s working up fantastically.  Yay for no pooling!  (and now they will start pooling, of course)
