Three down...


...and who knows how many to go. My third pair of socks, done on two circs. I like that method. I'm not sure I'm crazy about this pattern, but that's okay. The loose leg will never get too tight during a long day. My trusty, beloved sock blockers just didn't do this pattern justice. I can say that I'm learning to graft, and I enjoyed knitting with a blend, rather than 100% merino.
Pictures might be slim for a while. I'm casting on for my Sockza socks next. I also want to cast on my Tofutsies June Sock of the Month, but I need #2 circs, and those are on order from Knitpicks, along with several books, all courtesy of my mother inlaw's birthday money to be used on knitterly goodness.
This was also my first pair for the Summer of Socks. Clearly, I'm not entered in the most socks in a summer contest.

Great job!! I love those colors together and loose legs wouldn't bother me at all, I love those slouchy type socks..lol I will learn this one day :)

Those look great! I've been trying toe up on two circs, but the short row heel just doesn't fit my feet as well. I think after I finish this one, I'm going back to top down with a heel flap.

Oh, and I think there should be another contest for SOS. Category: Slowest Knitter. I might have a chance at that one! LOL

Love the socks. I am way behind you in the tally and won't be entering any contests anytime soon. Glad you like two circs. I do fine until it's time to pick up the gusset stitches. Then I get disoriented. Back to my trusty DP's. Hope you had a nice weekend.

Those socks look great! I think the pattern looks lovely with that yarn color way. I wish I were as fast as you with socks. I am on the foot of my 2nd sockza socks and I am quite pleased.

VERY nice dear! I envy your grafting skills. I'm dreading that one part of my socks to come :o
