Beachy Socks

I'm in sock finishing mode right now. I know it's the kiss of death to state that I intend to finish something by a certain date but I'm going to tempt fate and say that by this time next week I'll have 2 more pairs of socks finished. They will be my 9th and 10th pairs for this year. Not bad at all but definitely short of my goal of 18-20 for the year but there are still a few months left. I'd better get moving.


These have been finished for a while. They're just another pair of dead-simple toe-up socks but I really love the yarn. It's Madeline Tosh Sock in a color called Shoreline which was perfect for summer knitting and kept the beach perpetually on my mind. Too bad I never got there.


Can't you see the beach in those colors? The sand and the sea and the whitecaps rolling in to crash on the shore.


I suppose that it speaks volume for my color preferences that all of the socks I've finished this year and those that are still on the needles are in the blue-green family. I should be tired of knitting blue and green socks by now but I'm not. Not at all.

Love the color! You always knit with colors I love. Must find sock mojo. My year has not been productive.

What a great color combo! My sock production has been way down this year, too. I blame it on Bejeweled.
