I am knitting Monkey socks (from Knitty, one of Cookie's patterns) using Fleece Artist and Waving Lace in Cherry Tree Hill (a second pair!). Both are on their second sock. It's amazing how much I knit in the winter time!

waving lace socks

These are the waving lace socks from the IK book that I recently finished out of Cherry Tree Hill. I really like the pattern. Don't worry the legs of the socks are very stretchy. I can't wait to get started on a few more patterns from the IK favorite socks book (such as the embossed leaves socks!)

Socks that I am going to knit

From Knitty I'm going to knit the baudelaire socks (with CTH solid), diamante, hedera (again, I already knit this pattern with koigu), kew (with fleece artist), and pomatomus.

From the Favorite socks book, I will knit the Waving Lace pattern (again), embossed leaves socks (hopefully a couple of times), merino lace socks, Mock Wave Cable socks, diagonal cross-rib socks, and go with the flow socks.

Not to mention what I will knit from Sensational Knitted Socks!

or why I can't quit my day job...

I recently bought some sKNITches since it seems so hard to get. From left to right is Dayspa, Old Fashioned and two skeins of Handsome Devil for knee socks. The rightmost skein is Vesper Sock yarn in Crew. I think self striping sock yarn is great though I have yet to start knitting any of my self striping sock yarn up yet.

In any case, I'm not allowed to buy sock yarn for a very long time since I have way too many skeins of sock yarn. In my defense though, I'm almost exclusively knitting socks these days and I knit on the bus/subway/plane, etc.
