Meet my Azure Socks, everyone!

This is the 8th attempt at these socks. If you remember, I started them in May, and then ripped them out twice over the course of one weekend in Texas. (Okay, so maybe it isn’t actually the 8th attempt, but it’s at least the 5th or 6th.)

Now, I have 2 heels, and just have to do the leg and cuff. VICTORY!

I am in love with them. I also have the urge to knit EVERYTHING with Ranco. I cannot believe how beautiful it is. The colors are glorious and look beautiful together. I was expecting stripes, but the distribution of the colors is amazing and I’m glad it is variegated, rather than striped.

The pictures aren’t that great, BUT. The socks themselves are amazing and coming along nicely.

So, I am devoting all my knitting attention to these socks at the moment, but I do have other things that I need to finish:

  • Phineas socks for my dear sister Kathryn
  • Marie Club socks for me
  • Mardi Gras socks for me
  • Jayne Cobb Hat for either me, Jessica, or Jonnie

And then LOTS of things that I WANT to knit, but haven’t started yet:

  • Red cardigan (Cascade 220)
  • Various Market Bags
  • Classroom Sweater (Berrocco Alpaca and Undecided variegated yarn)

I’ve been seeing a lot of cardigans on Ravelry that I want to knit, but they all involve seaming. Curses! I could probably adapt the pattern for raglan sleeves, but we’ll see.

Still in love.
