8 out of 10's not bad...

Here are my mini-socks for Socktoberfest as of this morning:

From the top: blue Koigu, pink Lorna's Laces, red Sundara, red/white/blue Sophie's Toes, bright multi Sophie's Toes, muted multi Koigu, orange Koigu, and bright Sophie's Toes again.

Oh, I love them all; they make me smile! Since I took the photo one more has been finished and another started (then I'll be on schedule). The bright Sophie's Toes is called "Christmas Lights". I have two half-skeins from Emily's shop. Since I have more of it than the others, which are leftovers, I'm going to make the "Christmas Lights" minis the ones that tie it all together, so to speak. I think the half-skein will make seven or eight minis, so I won't have to use any of the other half-skein and can continue to covet it happily in it's cute little cake form on my shelf! ;-) (I know you understand.)

My Through The Loops Mystery Socks for 2009 are coming along too. The pattern is great, of course. I've fallen into a groove with the pattern, and I'm liking it. I'm using Madeline Tosh, Tosh Sock in Parchment which I purchased from Amy's Etsy shop. The yarn is a gorgeous, subtle mix of winter white, beige, cocoa, caramel, and grey. No photos because I don't want to spoil the mystery for anyone who reads here and is knitting along too, but trust me, they're purdy!

Are you Socktoberfest-ing? What's your pleasure?

I hope you're having a great weekend! xoxo
