Socks for Daughter-in-law in Tiki
This yarn is from Knit Picks Felici yarn in Tiki. They are for her birthday next month and she said she wanted color and color she got, lol. This yarn is machine washable and dryable and comes out so beautifully soft to the touch. I am still trudging away and two more pair for my husband to take on our cruise and hopefully will then be able to finish the sleeves of a lace sweater I made to wear to dinner on the cruise and a mohair wrap I made to wear on formal night. I have until the 3rd week of Sept to finish it all so I imagine it will all get done, but at the moment I am kind of sick of knitting socks.

Fun! Fun! I deem these "party socks"! They are gorgeous, but sorry to hear you're getting sick of making them (and still have more to do).

I do hope you can get everything done in time for your cruise. What could be better: lots of finished objects that you and hubby can wear and an exciting trip?

in another forum someone asked "what is your favorite thing to knit"? I was very surprised to see that more people responded that they liked to knit socks. I was thinking that I will likely never knit a pair as I would rather knit something that would be much more expensive but socks are fairly cheap. Most said that they get a great satisfaction from knitting them that I think I need to give it a shot after all.

What fun socks! People are going to start booking the cruise that you're on just to see the latest from the "knitting lady". Maybe take a break from socks and finish those lace sleeves. It would be fun to see the finished project and it will give you a fresh eye for DH's socks.

message me when you do as I have the perfect pattern for a first time sock knitter. I had read several people's instructions/classes on sock knitting and they all scared me to death. This woman was very straight forward and it was fairly easy to do. On top of that, I bought a book several years ago that has charts for making socks and it is terrific. If you are interested, pm me and I will send you the name of the author and the book. I use it all the time and it has wonderful patterns and such in it too.

Honey, socks are not necessarily cheap, frankly. I bought yarn for my husband's cruise socks and the total made the socks around $30 a pair!!! lolol
