Red Hot Socks

I listen to books and podcasts when I am home walking, quilting and knitting.  I also listen to them when I'm on the road.
One podcast I enjoy listening to is Tapgurl On the Go
Carmen was a customer of our former yarn shop and she makes me feel happy that we were a small part in creating a knitter.  Listening to her makes me miss Texas.
She recently had a KAL called the Summer of Socks where she encouraged her listeners to knit from their stash, socks or other projects using sock yarn which ran from May 26 through midnight September 1. 
This is my stack of socks.  Two pairs are birthday socks, one pair is for Christmas and the top pair I just finished for me.
Just under the wire.

My sock drawer has been missing a pair of red socks.
Please notice that one is a left sock and one is a right sock.
The yarn is Tough Love Sock from Sweet Georgia in the color way Cherry.
I also made the Global Nomad Cowl using Fishknits Warm Heart 2-ply in the color way Jelly on Toast.

The purpose of Summer of Socks was to knit up some of the sock yarn in my stash.
That I did accomplish but I also added more to my stash.
It really is hard for me to resist sock yarn.

  1. Love your red socks!

    I see you've started a project using two of the skeins you got at Stitches West 2013. Glad you finally found a use for them.
