I have been busy knitting socks. I think it's the most addictive item I've knitted yet! Here are the latest two socks I've completed. I'll have a drawer full before long!

Those are both beautiful...did you just photograph one each of the two pairs, or are you still hoping to knit the seconds? (or perhaps, you aren't constrained by wearing completely mismatched socks!)

Yes, I photographed one each of two pair. Both pair are complete and ready to wear, or give away as the case may be.

To aviod "second sock syndrome" I use two sets of dpns and knit each section of both socks at the same time.

The first one looks like Noro, yes? I always wondered how that would feel on my feet. Great socks, I too am addicted to knitting socks. At least half of my stash is sock yarn.

Yes, the first one is Noro. It's a bit tricky to get used to working with as it breaks easily. That may be unique to me since I'm a tight knitter.

These were made as a gift, but I plan to make myself a pair in the near future. They feel good to work with so I imagine they will feel good on feet, too.

Beautiful socks! Knitting socks and stashing sock yarn are both highly addictive.

Beautiful work- I wish I understood this sock mania, but for the life of me I don't. Oh, well.

I know what you mean. I recently posted my first pair of socks and I'm seriously jonesing to go out and buy some really cool sock yarn for my next pair! Just when I thought my knitting obsession couldn't get any worse...
