I thought I'd post a pic of my 7 so far. I'm a bit slower since I have multiple projects going right now, so I'm quite proud of myself getting these all done.

I really like the variegated ones. They turned out nice and stripey even if the yarn isn't super soft. I just used regular red heart for most of these.

My misfortune has been fortunate for this mini-sock project for the troops -- We just had a huge snowstorm and I lost power early yesterday morning and didn't get it back until later this afternoon... almost 36 hours!

So what the heck do you do when you're snowed in and have no power so you can't work (I work from home on the computer)? YOU KNIT!!

So between trying to stay warm, finding creative ways of cooking without power on an old wood stove, longing for a hot shower, listening to weather reports on a little bity transister radio... I found time to knit 12 more socks for the troops!!! It kept me from going insane.... and I must say, knitting at night by kerosene lantern with wind blowing 50 mph and snow building up outside so you can't see out the windows is actually not a totally bad experience!

I believe my last count was 12, so Julie, you can make my total 24 now!!

I was most anxious to get electricity and phone/internet service back just to see how this project was going (to heck with work!!)... So I was so happy to finally get on-line tonight and see we hit 300 socks! You guys were really busy while I was out of touch... Way to go!!

I'm hoping to keep doing a few more through next week, but will have to catch up on work I missed for two days now, so don't know how much I'm going to get done, but I'm going to try to keep adding to the count. I figured out my Christmas knitting I'd like to do and the finish up some Special Olympic scarves, and think I could devote another week to this project before I need to jump into those things, so you guys are stuck with me for bit longer!

Julie, what is the day that you need them in by? I could go look through the past posts, but our phone/internet has been pretty sporadic since it came back on a few hours ago and I want this post sent before it pops me off-line again and I lose it, so I hope you don't mind me asking again quickly!

Thanks again to all of you... Even if we don't get to 850 in this little KH group, we all deserve a big hand for the huge amount we have done!

Take care everyone!

Sandi

I'd like to try and do at least a couple, but I've never done anything like this (I've done booties, but they didn't have the "flap", and all those minute details) and I'm afraid I'll mess it up. Are they as difficult as they look? I'm also HORRIBLE at seaming...I still haven't learned how to do it neatly.

I don't want to promise anything and then not be able to follow through....anybody got any advice or tips to give me so I can do my part?

Thanks!!!!!!!!
