Summer of Socks - The Knit is On!

When I signed up for Summer of Socks I was elated as I had been obssesivly increasing my sock yarn stash. Fellow knitters warned me about socks being addictive. Little did I know that my obssesive compulsive personality would kick inn in this area too! When Zarzuela anounced this KAL I leaped at the opportunity to bust some of my humungous stash... I thought to myself --yeah! here is a golden opportunity to fill my sock drawer and bust some stash... Christmas presents may be a side bonus too:)

Picture of my small mountain of sock yarn thats been growing, growing, growing.... I will post prettier categorized pictures later.

Summer of Socks is in full swing at Chez Marisol's. I have 4 pairs on the needles and will be casting on for 2 more. Also, we are going camping in 2 weeks and I will be brining 2 to 3 of these puppies along for the ride. This should count for some vacation knitting as we are going camping out in Clear Lake.

Here are pictures of the various socks I am working on:
