I really don't just knit socks, but it is hard to tell at times. Currently I have a whopping 20 works not quite in progress, including a scarf that needs the ends woven in and a good blocking (actually make that 21, because I just finished the knitting for the Red Scarf project and never put it in Ravelry). Only 3 of those projects are socks, so it is probably safest to say that I only really finish the sock projects.
So, here are the socks I finished a gazillion years ago (in September).
These are the Retro Rib socks from Favorite Socks, and I can see why they are popular. Easy enough to work on in fits and starts, they make a great commuter sock pattern. I've been wearing mine with the most business-like grey slacks I have, which makes them extra fun.
One of the things I liked most about the cruise were the towel creatures. So, here is the doggie from one of the last days posing with my wool socks. Now, why, oh why, did I think it was a great idea to pack a pair of wool socks to a Caribbean cruise? I'm not sure I could tell you know, but I have 3 socks, a sock book, and the yarn for both the matching sock (the Diamond Gansey socks I've been working on) and the fair isle socks. It was a sock knitting extravaganza, but only in the early morning or late evening when I was tuckered out from all the sun.
Now, these socks are done and I've taken a little break from the fair isle socks (umm, I started a fair isle hat which is also not listed in my Ravelry queue), so what I'm working on most right now is Ishbel. I started Ishbel when Ysolda came to Boston to sign her book at Windsor Button. I bought the book, had her sign it, and bought yarn and cast on that night. I knit through the stockinette and I started the lace. Then I stopped cold, and I don't remember why. There was nothing wrong with the project, but I just didn't keep going. Go figure.
Now I'm about 20 rows from the end and I know I will need to buy more yarn, either a similar shade of the Malabrigo sock or a complementary color. I don't know what I'm going to do yet, because I'm pretty sure I have enough to get through the last iteration of Chart A and possibly Chart C. I would like to get that far, but worse comes to worse Windsor Button is just up the road. They will have something that will work no matter which road I end up going down.
