They look yellow in the picture but they are grey, very light grey...
And because its christmas I made them a little more christmas with a fluffy cuff...:o)
Thanks again for a wonderful pattern...
Have a nice christmas and a happy new year..
I used from my stash for these socks, even those this pattern is more worthy of a solid color. Sorry... These socks are modeling with the 2-3 feet of snow we have gotten here in the NW this past 10 days! We are crossing our fingers to get our rain pattern back. :) Happy holidays!

The deadline for the December draw will be 3rd January (did I remember to tell you that Barb? Barb does the list for the draw for me each month). We'll be home on 3rd January so I'll do the draw then or on the 4th. But Barb will do the final list on the 3rd. New pattern will be listed on 4th January.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and manage to fit in lots of knitting. I've taken several pairs of socks to finish, got lots of single socks waiting for a partner so took 4 of them with me. And started a new lace stole for my sister last night. Should be enough to keep me busy. Got to visit lots of yarn shops while I'm here for an article I'm doing for a knitting mag. But I can't buy anything as we were up to the limit on our luggage allowance coming here and Ryan Air are really strict and won't allow any extra.
God Jul! (which is Norwegian for Happy Christmas!).

These are for my daughter for Christmas - I'm sure she's going to love them.
Yarn: Opal Trekking XXL - Cream with coloured speckles
Needles: 2 x 2.5mm circulars
I made 2 (very minor) changes - I added 5 rows of rib at the top and did a reinforced heel.
Thanks again for all your hard work.

Hope you're all finding time to knit the December socks. As we're away over Christmas and New Year I'll extend the deadline for the December draw till 4 January which is when we'll be home again. The January socks will be posted then too. If you fancy treating yourself to a sock yarn club for Christmas, sign up for Sockamania PLUS Merino Sock Club now (one month or three month memberships available). I'll be dyeing the January yarn in the next few days and posting it next week.

Thanks Anni I love my new socks! You may not have knit this pair, but you hand dyed and created the pattern for them. Yippy! This is the Parakeet color way. I guess it is a good thing retail has cut back my hours so I have more time to knit this month. Can't wait until December's pattern!

I realize these are quite late, but I have a good excuse. I packed up my house and family, quit my job, and moved to another state. Then I spent six weeks trying to unpack, start a new job and get over a terrible cold/sinus infection.
So, anyway, here are my "Little flowers". I used some left over yarn (Tofutsies) and created a pico edge for the cuff--one of my favorite way to create a cuff.
Thanks for the pattern Anni. Unfortunately, "Fruity" is going to be a little late. Christmas projects keep getting in the way. I am sure I have no less than 15 UFO's and 4 or 5 WIP's right now. I can't wait to feel more settled in!!

And here they are...
I think I maybe should have used another yarn but in the real they look lovely and the pattern show ok...
Its difficult to take pics that show pattern ok I think, it doesn´t matter if its one colour or mixed up...
How do you do to take better pics?
Do you have any tip for me?...:o)
Have a nice day//Birgitta

Well done to everyone whos finished October's socks. They all look fab. I've been looking at them all but not had time to post individual comments for everyone but they all look gorgeous. Just got to finish my 2nd one now.
I will do the draw for the October winners tomorrow. It's getting late now and I'm so tired, was awake more than I slept last night, and I've still got to do my online grocery shopping.

My yarn from August win came Monday. My daughter forgot to tell me that it had finally gotten there. Since I am away from home and will be for the next week I told her to go ahead and open the package. She fell in love with it and said she wanted socks out of it. I told her it was for me, but I don't think I have won yet. We will see.
Thanks, Anni. I can't wait to get home for lots of reasons and now to see my yarn. I love getting new yarn and if it is free that is even better.
