More Socks

I really need to knit some sweaters, hats and mittens, but the socks keep getting in the way.
Pattern: Francie by Rebekkah Kerner of Bowerbird Knits
Yarn: Shibui in Chinese Red
Needles: US1 circular
Lovely pattern, filled with 2x2 ribbing, increases and decreases creating a cozy shaped sock.

I really have to tell you about the current Mystery Sock. If you enjoy mystery socks, you should join this one. It is lovely. There is a plain version (not really too plain) and a version with a wandering cable incorporated into it. I have chosen to do the cabled version with a sport weight yarn and it is such a fun knit.
Kirsten Kapur of Through The Loops is a lovely designer and has started a mystery knit along through Ravelry. If you are interested, you can find the group here.

This is my sock after 2 clues. One is a side view and the other is front/back view. Depending upon the number of stitches you choose to cast on, the look changes a bit.

Wow, that red yarn is luscious! The mystery sock looks very intriguing. It looks so pretty so far!

I just looked at your sidebar - 41 completed socks in 2008 with 2 1/2 months to go....you're going to average more than 1 pair/week!! Is your sock drawer exploding???

You are so good in your socks knitting as both socks look great. I wanted to join the Mystery Sock but did not as the design is for cuff down. I guess I will wait till all clues are given & then knit the socks from toe-up.
