Socks,socks and more socks!

My computer is finally working properly!!!!! (I might have whined a little last night to get him working on it....) Which means....
The Morning Glory sock pattern is finally ready for you all! This is my absolute favourite sock right now, and I'm lucky enough to have two pairs! The pair Mom test knit, she made in my size!

While the lace pattern looks complicated on this sock, it's much easier than you think. Once you get going, these socks just fly off the needles!

And speaking of flying socks...those who had every confidence I would finish Dad's father's days socks in time were bang on the money.

(I apologize for the truly crappy photo - a better one will come when I have better light and man-feet to model)

I knit on them every spare second I had. I didn't neglect my housework for once, and still managed to get a good chunk of them done on Saturday, getting well past the heel. Sunday saw the finish of most of the foot, and last night was the last pattern repeat and the toe. I grafted them just before bed!

I will be knitting another pair of these for my brother - and the pattern should be available fairly quickly, barring any more computer issues. 

But for now, I think I'm going to go knit a shawl!

Your socks are great looking; I love the lace ones. I must make my husband a pair of socks too.

Morning Glories look great! I've already favourited them and started stalking your Etsy shop for likely looking yarn.

And congrats on finishing your Dad's socks on time! Very handsome and manly. You're really on a roll!

Yeah! YOu are on a roll! Lovely summer socks, and how great, that you've finished Father's Day socks with so much time left! What shawl are you knitting ?
