So this was what I was knitting when I took my blogging subbatical. If you want, check out my Ravelry project page for more info.
The brown socks on the top left are my oldest brother's socks. I'm going to write up the pattern after I finish the TOL. I need to knit the socks again in a ladies version. I have permission from Hello Yarn to publish her Irish Hiking Scarf pattern that I modified into a pair of socks. It'll be my first "published" pattern.
The red socks in the center are made with Madeline Tosh's Tosh sock yarn. The picture doesn't do them justice. I had a hard giving them up!
The black socks in the lower right are for nephew#4 and they're little and cute just like he is.
