July Sockfest

Here's what I've been working on this summer. Baudelaire socks for my SIL. I modified the heel with short rows. I don't really like gussets.

Here's another pair I knit with some yarn I found in Boerne, TX.
Not quite finished in this photo, but they are now! This picture made me think about making toeless socks - Sandal Socks! Hmm.....

This is a top down pair from Interweave Knits Winter '05, Embossed Leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt.
Again modified with the short row heels. Did I mention I don't like gussets?

Here's a closeup of the pattern.
This superwash wool was from Rosewood Yarns. I discovered this cute shop while I was exploring Boerne when DH was working in San Antonio in June. It's really yummy. I might have to get some for myself the next time I'm in TX. That may be fairly often since DH will be going there every other week or so.
I made these socks a couple of years ago in Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK. My SIL was admiring them then, so they seemed like the perfect birthday gift. Happy Birthday Lori!
