July 2008 socks are FINISHED!

Plain Janes 2.JPG

I am calling these my "Plain Jane" socks. Only because there is no pattern. I let the yarn do the talking.

Pattern: Ann Budd's basic sock pattern from her book
Yarn: From Norway - gift from Kris
Needles: US 1's - 2 circulars
I have it on my project page on Ravelry you can look there too. I am too lazy to share the specs! Bad Beth!

There was some interesting pooling going on with these socks. But I don't mind it. You can't really tell anyway. They are so busy! I love them. They are for me. I have a couple more pictures up on flickr if you are just dying to see more....

I have quite a bit of yarn left over

Which I will add to my scrap yarn granny square blanket. I haven't shown that lately have I? It's getting bigger and I think it needs to be shown!

I am thinking another pair of Plain Jane socks are in order. I want to finish my February Lady Sweater! I don't need a fussy pattern to gumm up the works.

Yay! With several days to spare! Will you be dyeing tomorrow? I'm reeeeally hoping to go if the packing has moved along enough.

If you like opal and want it cheap www.littleknits.com is closing out all her opal. I had to snatch up a few skeins myself when the sale started.

Wow. A whole week to spare. Nice going!

Those look so cozy. Now I want to abandon all my fancy sock projects to knit some plain janes.

Love them! I really enjoy those colors...

For your opal, can I suggest sideways socks? With that flecking on the white (yours looks like purple flecks) they look awesome with the sideways...

see other sideways opal here:


Thanks for the cool blog!

Look at you! Finishing early! I love the colors of those socks..even though I don't usually consider myself a bright color kind of person..

Those socks are great! I haven't knit much since I moved. I really should work on that.

Those socks are anything but plain jane! Can't wait to see the next pair knit up either!
