Flying time is good for sock productivity!

After an eventful trip to the airport (the lines were huge!) and a rather uneventful flight I have some sock progress to show!

Pair #44:



Pattern: Jaywalker
Yarn: Fortissima Colori Socka Color
Started: ?
Finished: 12/20/06

Pair #45



Pattern: Here There Be Dragons
Yarn: STR mediumweight in Lagoon
Started: 12/8/06
Finished: 12/20/06

Since I'm across the country without my sock blockers the pictures are not the most beautiful, but hopefully they illustrate the fact that I did in fact knit more socks. ;) I would have waited til I got home, but the Dragon socks will be winging their way to their owner today so I figured I'd better photograph them quickly. Plus, I don't want you guys to get bored and leave me!

In other not-so-knitting-related news, I've decided to put the music I'm listening to while I write my blog posts. Just for fun, so you can laugh at my musical tastes.

Listening to: Almond Beauty ~ Sculptured, Jimmy ~ Tool

those sock are nice. I wish i had the patience to knit them. Which is funny, because I'd knit a cabled sweater with no problem.

HA! Tool! Hilarious! :P :P
Glad you made it WA safely...I'm already turning the heel on my Sock Candy sock #1. Less than a week - a record for me since this whole work thing started.
I'm off to DC tomorrow - have an awesome time, if I don't talk to you!

Amazing! I can't wait to see the next five pairs. :-) I plan on starting a pair with the Skeintily Clad yarn I bought so I can start 07 with socks!
