Thanks for the reminder, AuntCrafty!
We've decided to do something we can use for the summer.
If you've never knit socks before, you can see an excellent online tutorial created by our own amazing Silver.
I'm planning on finishing up a pair I started a long time ago for my oldest son. And I'm casting on another pair for my middle son. I might even make a pair for myself!
Here's the red pair I've been working on, using the "One Skein Sockettes" pattern:
And I want to use the "Ankle Socks
" pattern for my other son.
Also, I have some nice colorful Plymouth Sockotta yarn in my stash that I've been wanting to use for a pair for me! The yarn has bright yellow, pink, and orange - PERFECT for summer!
If you need to find more patterns, just check out Ravelry, or look at Knitting Pattern Central. Here are a few I found:

Happy Ankle Sock Knitting!
