Happy Socktober!

Only the one these pairs was finished in October, but they are all being shown off for the first time in the merry month of Socks.

Pattern: Shamelessly stolen from Marguerite's blog, but if her friend ever publishes her pattern, I will buy it.
Yarn: Regia Nation Crazy Color (I like Marguerite's version in Opal better)
Needles: US1 dpns
Notes: Fun, easy, very bright. These were a great summer knit that used up some long time stash and made me smile every time I picked them up. I still haven't decided if they are for me or for a gift.

Pattern: Victorian Lace Socks by Lorri Ann Romesberg from Six Socks Knitalong
Yarn: Regia 4 fadig with speckles
Needles: US1 dpns
Notes: A very fun knit and a great pattern.

Pattern: Simple 6x2 rib with basic sock recipe
Yarn: Opal Lollipop
Needles: US 1 dpns
Notes: Just your basic socks. I was having gauge issues so I went back to basics when I tired of frogging. These were just the ticket. These will probably be a gift. It's fun to add to the stash well before the holidays. This was also out of my stash from when I first started knitting socks.

Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks from Interweave Favorite Socks
Yarn: Trekking XXL 206
Needles: US 1 dpns for the cuffs, US2 dpns for the rest
Notes: Love these socks! I made the leg a little longer than the pattern suggested, but otherwise I stuck to the directions. The dark navy tweed goes perfectly with jeans and are fabulous fall socks just for me!
