Summer of Sock 2008

SOS08 has created a monster (many I am sure). It is a competition to see who can knit the most socks during the 3 months of summer. I got talked into joining and have enjoyed every minute. No prizes yet for me, and there is even one person I know of who has already knit 18 pairs. I am up to pair #9. Check out the photos below.
Warning: if you are a Rockin' Sock Club member, there is a spoiler below.

Did you sleep at all? How could you get those Gum Drops done so quickly? I was going to use my Goody Goody on the anklets, but I may be changing my mind...

I'm jumping on your cheerleader bandwagon - Go Linda Go!!
