Sock Focus

Ann of Mason-Dixon Knitting is now knitting socks. (The only thing that would surprise me more is if Becky started knitting socks). Ann's first socks are Trekking XXL socks - they're beautiful!

Industrious Margene and her pal, Norma, have started Trek Along With Me, a blog for Trekking XXL sock knitters (you have to "take a hike" with your sock). I first read about it on Liz's blog. By the way, Liz also has a Flickr group for Trekking XXL sock knitters.

We're almost halfway through the year and it has been a sock-focused year for me. I've had to adapt to having a really busy school year (with three kids in school now) and learn to be flexible with my projects so that spare minutes are "enough." However, summer means larger blocks of time in which to knit, so I do expect to be able to finish some of the knitting projects that have languished in my basket this year; so many things are "this close" to being finished.

I hope my sock pal loves her socks:

She should receive it this week, along with a few small goodies I included. I love the Trekking XXL colorway so much (#107) that I've since ordered some for myself.

I bought some Trekking XXL while I was in California. Geeze! I better get knitting. I still have the KSH yarn staring at me!

I swear, your 107 socks look *so* much nicer than mine! How funny is that? I finished #1, so now I am on to #2!

Really gorgeous socks. Congratulations on finishing! The socks you received are beautiful as well. Looks like a successful Sockapalooza for you!

Those are just gorgeous! I saw them on the Flickr group and had to see more info on them here :) I think I have #107 in my stash!

Oh, dear, now I feel the need for 107. I have 100, 108, 76, 78, 144... and more. But not 107. Sigh. It's a sickness.
