Socks for me

This is the first time I have ever hand knit socks for myself, believe it or not. I have hand knit many socks but always gave them to someone else. They are so comfy and warm. I hope they wear well. The brown ones are Cherry Tree Hill colour Java and the ones on the needles are Opal 6ply. They are going to be really warm.

I also have the back done and one sleeve started on the Twisted Float shrug. Here is the back before I started the sleeeve, you can see where the sleeves go by my wool holding the sleeve stitches. I love the colours. This is made with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Watercolour and Charcoal and the trim is Grace in Blackberry. You can't even imagine how soft this yarn is. I hope to get this done this week so I will show a finished picture soon.

Glad the party went so well, Lisa. I love the colours of the shrug and am most interested in the finished garment. I have knit five pair of socks for myself this fall and winter. They feel so good on your feet! I know you will knit more than one pair for yourself!!
