Latest completed projects

I've not done an update lately. A busy summer and first few weeks of college starting. But, hey, we set new records for the college bookstore, so that's a good thing.

Anyhow, here are photos of the latest pairs of socks: The purple/blue ones are from earlier in the summer and the red/purple ones are a pair I finished last week for my cousin. [Lots of people are jealous...I normally knit socks only for myself anymore.]

LOVE the red/purple ! Beautiful gifts.

Thank you, Eric. The yarn is by Cascade and is, unfortunately, discontinued. The colorway reminds me of Bing cherries, a treat my cousin enjoys as well. The photo doesn't do it justice.

As always, your work is impeccable, Joe. More like works of art.

Superior craftsmanship as always! I, too, love the red colour. I see you've done perfect gusset stitches without a hole - well done!

Thank you, Jesse. I hate holes at the gussets and was very happy that I didn't have to fiddle with them to prevent any showing up.

Thank you all for the great compliments. Recognition by my peers is always the highest praise. I think of myself as a fairly decent knitter but I have to admit that I do make very good socks.

You certainly do deserve all the praise you get. I know you have helped me a lot. I enjoyed testing knitting one of your designs and am anxious for it to be completed and available, so I an make another pair...this time with more yarn to a longer leg.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. Given the pace of things lately, I can't even begin to guess when that pattern will be available.

Thanks, Stephen. I have to come clean and say that I almost kept this pair for myself...but then I realized it wouldn't hurt to give them to my cousin after all.

Great looking socks, Joe! I'm sure your cousin will love them!

Thank you very much, Ken. I know they should be at her house today or Monday...providing USPS tracking isn't wrong. LOL From her last letter, it sounds as if she's greatly anticipating them.
