"summer of socks" is almost over. i have two more pairs finished but cannot show you the entire socks as these are destined for blue moon fiber arts. but i can show you the colors this time.

pair #3 is socks that rock lightweight in the "24 karat" colorway. the colors are pretty true to life in the photo.

pair #4 is knit with "backstabber." the colors are lighter than the actual yarn. i had a hard time getting these to show in true color. there are beautiful variations of magenta that you really cannot see here. i loved the colors but my conservative son thought these socks were a bit "bright."

the only problem with this summer is that i finished 5 pairs of socks but will only end up with 2 pairs in my possession! i guess i didn't achieve my goal of knitting up socks for me! i still do not own a pair of socks that rock. i am sad.

i started playing with the panda wool that susan sent a few weeks ago. i am working on a uni-sex pattern because there is a major lack of interesting "guy" patterns. my men don't seem to get too excited with my lace socks. don't know why!

These socks look ever so beautiful, I love the colorways! But hey, now you'll sure have to knit some for yourself too! ;)

Those socks are so pretty! I hope you get your own STR socks soon :) I can't wait to see your uni-sex pattern.

Adrienne, would you think that the Panda Wool would be suitable for a pattern that called for not quite DK weight but thicker than fingering (Friday Harbor on the Knitting on the Road group)
I have 4 balls of that gorgeous blue-green colorway that I want to use. Oh, and thanks for the compliment to the Sole of California, we do have gorgous sunsets; no precipitation.
