Ok.. so I finished the socks for ES...



And I started some socks for me (from some 'Sookie' yarn that I ordered) to have as a nightstand project..

But.. this morning I started a pair of Crazy Cotton socks for JT, since I'm going to visit next week, and wanted to have something for him, as I'm taking onesie dresses for Miss Kate...

See.. I said I could explain... Wink

The yarn designer is a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, and has dyed yarns based on how she sees the characters..

GA, you just zip through socks, so it should not detract too much from your other projects to have several OTN. Laughing

I've got an bit more than an inch, and then the heels... I should be to the cuff today... I want to get them done, and then finish the onesie dresses, which take lots less time than socks... Then I'll be ready to go...

Your right nony, she does zip thru her socks. (Ofcourse she does not lose her projects before they are completed. Laughing )

They're done...



I used Crazy Cotton.. It's dyed randomly, so there's no way to get anything to match up that I could see... which suits me just fine... I like 'distantly related' socks... Wink

Very nice.

They're definitely related socks.

You are a hoot! No need to explain the casting on of "yet another project" to us. Plus, you've already finished it. Golly! Shocked
