The top socks are Denmarks by Nancy Bush from her book, Knitting on the Road. More importantly though with these socks, I am learning to knit socks two at a time. Something I have been wanting to accomplish for quite awhile now.
The second ones are going to be Jeweled Steps, by Cat Bordhi, from her book New Pathways for Sock Knitters. The toe was very interesting and a little challenging.
The last sock picture is of my Harika's, from the Twist Collective, an online knitting magazine. I am farther then that on them, but learning two at a time has been taking precendence.
The last photo is of my knitting books. I actually have two more knitting books coming when they are published in April. It has been coming about that my two internet knitting buddies, Linda, http://lindaknittingblog.blogspot.com/ and Pat, http://www.patsknittingandquilting.com/ will have most of the same sock knitting books. I suspect will be enjoying many KAL's together. I would have to say at least of of my knitting books are sock knitting books. I dare anyone to take a photo of their knitting books.
One thing that I have been doing with my knitting books is, on the inside cover, I have been putting the date of when I got them and where I got them and price or maybe who from if it is a gift. As I was checking my books, I realized my yarn fairy has increased my knitting library by seven books. Since the yarn fairy happens to be my mom, I have been putting in the a little blurb that says, because she loves me. Two of my books I got last year for Christmas. Anyway, it gives me a warm fuzzy. I like warm fuzzies.
