All Socks, All the Time!

It was a quiet day spent at jury service. At the very end of the day I was seated on a jury so I will have a new experience starting tomorrow. Of course, I cannot divulge any particulars, so I'll just focus on what I do when I'm not in the courtroom.

Most importantly, I spent my time while handing out goodies to the ghouls and goblins by finishing my Socktoberfest socks! Yay! Once again, I squeak in under the wire. The infamous Parrot Socks are finished. They are still really wild, but I think they suit the intended recipient. I'm too late for the prizes, but I have finished socks.

Next up is another progress picture of my Mosaic socks. This one is a bit more true to the colors. I need another skein of the forest green Regia Stretch to do the second sock.


Finally, we have the sum total of my knitting while at the courthouse. I did the tubular cast on and first row of the Aran socks from Socks, Socks, Socks that is the November sock for the Socks3KAL. I'm using the KFI Cashmereno that Grumperina raves about. We'll see.

LOVE the socks! They are wild and wonderful :)

Everyone who joined the knitalong was eligible, regardless of socks knit... so you were in the running! There were just so many people! Thanks so much for being a part of Socktoberfest this year!

Those parrots look great, but I am fascinated by the Mosaics. I just love the color combo!
