I am really trying to keep up on my New Year’s resolutions this year. If you’re not keeping track of them (what, you have a life?), one of the big resolutions this year was to knit a pair of socks each month using a pattern from one of my (many, many) sock books and stash yarn. Sadly the end of May came and I only had one sock done for the month and the start of another. It’s not my fault. There are so many cute patterns and yarns out there that I keep getting distracted by a shawl or knitted hat. I guess I could stay off Ravelry and out of the yarn stores, but that is so not going to happen. Let’s be realistic here!
So I have a few projects lined up. I seem to be spending time in the craft room playing with yarn, beads, fabric, and organizing different projects. Lots of ideas; not enough time to get them done. Yesterday I ignored the craft room, settled down by the television and binge knitted on the May socks for most of the afternoon. I was approaching the toe when I ran out of steam, so this morning it was pretty easy to get them done before lunch. Here they are!
So, I went into overtime a little on this one, but I am ready to dive into the June socks. I thought the Rachel Coopey sock was so cute that I selected another pattern by her (from a different book!) and matched it with a blue-ish yarn. Here it is.
I have several little (excessively cute) projects to get done before I start on these socks. More knitting!! Must knit faster!!

Great! So familiar, all those ideas and just not enough time to get them all done 🙂 The socks look great, I love the colour. That’s two sock posts in one day, phew, I really, really would like to knit some socks but I know I am just not good enough at knitting yet but I really must try a simple knitting project again soon 🙂
Yes…I agree so many cute socks out there. I’ve got 1 sock almost done, but looking at the Petals Socks is giving me heart palpitations. Thanks for stirring my sock juju. Hooray for sock yarn and beautiful colorways.
Heart palpitations! You made me laugh. That is so true. Those socks are really calling my name and tugging at my heart strings. 🙂
Love the socks! I also have the Milfoil pattern. After seeing yours finished, I want to cast them on. True to form, I already have a pair of socks on my needles. Guess, I’ll need to finish those up first.
I bought yarn to make another pair for a gift. I finished the cute projects last night and cast on the June socks, but I’m sooo tempted to put the new Milfoil socks onto needles. It is so hard to resist!
