Summer of Socks 2011

Who doesn't love making socks in the summer? Small, portable, perfect for road trips, and not too hot to have on your lap when it's utterly too humid to live.

I'm in the Summer of Socks group on Ravelry again and really enjoy seeing all of the updates from fellow sock knitters. My goal for the next three months is to finish three sock designs, and get at least one of the patterns published.

My summer design inspirations are themed around my spring vacation in Belize. The first pair (in progress before summer started, I'm fast but not that fast) is pictured here. Still need to get through heel and foot on the second sock.
