August socks are done.

I finished that pair of socks on August 31st, just barely under the deadline. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out and hope my friend enjoys them. No pictures are posted because I forgot them this morning. I'll remedy that within a couple of days and possibly post a sneak preview of the September socks. They are knitting up superbly in Manos del Uruguay "Alegria" - some of the softest sock yarn I've ever worked with.

[By the is absolutely fabulous to have my tag line return to my replies and comments. Thanks, Darrel.]

Joe, I am glad that you are keeping up. Although I usually knit a pair of socks every month, I never set myself to the task. I am sure it is rewarding to achieve your goals.

Just tried to load up my photos and the function wouldn't work. Not even with a new blog entry. Hope to remedy that in a few days.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I too love Books, knitting, and fountain pens. And while I don't care for cats, I love rats and that's only one letter off. You look so familiar to me. I don't know if it's from on here or at a retreat. Have you been to MFKR in Seattle? In any case, I hope we get to see those socks soon. :D

I personally don't care for rats - or mice - even though I once longed to own a gerbil. LOL

You might recognize me from both here and Ravelry as I'm fairly active in both Men Who Knit sites. So far, the only retreat I've attended is the Rocky Mountain version in Allenspark, CO. [I'm a charter member, so to speak.] But I dream of the day when I can attend all of them - at least once.

As for the Midwest...I attended university at Kansas University in the late 1970s, graduating in 1979. My major was Fine Arts but I was often about town amongst the gay community and arts related events - also art history, which was another interest.

As for the socks...they are also listed on my Ravelry projects page. I still intend to load them up here, providing the site cooperates.
