Some of This

I've been doing a lot of knitting lately, including these pink socks which I finished a couple of weeks ago for a friend. The color is a bit off in the photo, but these have a whole range of pinks in them from baby pink to magenta. The pattern is called Hedgerow, and I found it (for free) on Ravelry.

Now I'm working on a pair of men's socks in gray. Just turned the heel on the second sock, but since these are size 18 (yes, for the same fellow as before) I still have a long way to go before I start the toe decreases.  I also plan to make another pair of ladies' socks in the same yarn as the ones above, but using a different pattern, for another friend.  Just to change things up, when I can make the time (bet you know how often that happens) I have started a pair of plain socks for myself in a lovely reddish brown.

There are other projects in the works, of course, including an afghan for Liat that I hope to finish by Chanukah, and what will be the first of several toys that I hope to get done for Christmas gifts. So for now I am mostly in knitting mode.

Boy is your friend lucky for you to keep knittin' socks for him! You need to make him some crazy ones and have him model them...LOL.
I like that pink. Make some for yourself. Mahalo for asking about my baby too.
