And they're off!!!!

....off to school......





....and off the needles.....

I finished these off last night and ended up sleeping in them. Very comfy but a little stretched out for their photo shoot this AM. Here they are when I first tried them on.

I love my coordinating toes!

I bought two skeins of the Ocala Beach (the main part of the sock) but since the socks had short cuffs, I only used one. This is what is left of that one skein.

This weighed 0.1 oz. I wasnt stressed because I have another skein, but that's not much left at all!!!


Classic Soxs
64sts on 2.5mm needles
2x2 cuff for an inch
ss for an inch before heel started

yarn used: Classic Elite Summer Sox Ocala Beach and Terra Cotta
yarn used up: 2.1 oz/209 yds

sock #1: 7/18-8/14/11
sock #2: 8/14-8/21/11

the second sock always seems to go faster for me.


Now that these are done I can concentrate on the socks for Delaney, but I already plan on casting on using a size 2 needle and some Lorna's Laces sport weight yarn. I'm on a sock roll and I want to keep it going!!!!!


edit: fixed the incorrect spelling in title. I can't even blame lack of coffee....

Now that the kiddos are in school, there should be more knitting time.

The socklettes are adorable AND you have enough for another pair.

I love shorty socks. So cute that you wore them to bed
still too hot for that here.
Happy new school year

I hope your schools are all air-conditioned. Ours are not. Schools used to start after labor day, here in Iowa. Now they start earlier - this week - and most are letting classes out early because of the summer heat. BG's preschool does not start till Sept. 7th.

Your socks look great. I like short ones like that for warm weather wearing.

I LOVE the colors in that yarn. Someone is going to have happy feet, wearing those. :)
