Soc-tober in Wisconsin

I decided I needed to knit a pair of warm wool socks before the weather changes for the season.

I love what is happening with them. What I don't love is the amount of time it is taking me to knit them. I am using Emily Parsons's Sophie's Toes sock yarn. The color is Christmas Lights. I love the names she picks for her yarns.

This is over one weeks work!

I am knitting these on Size 0 double pointed bamboo needles. I am getting a gauge of 7-8 sts per inch.

I am quite certain these will fit me perfectly.

The last pair I knit ended up far too big so I just use them to put on my feet while I sit around if I am chilly in the evening!
