Socks for July

I've decided to try and make two pairs of socks for July. The first are the Hedgerow socks, made of the Pesto colorway yarn I'd bought not too long ago.

The second uses a very simple pattern stitch. I used Koigu in denim #2320 for this one and named it Blueberry Hill.

One Only (January-June, 2009)

This photo shows one of each of the six monthly socks I've made this year. It doesn't include my girly-girl pink lace bed socks or baby socks.

June Socks

Here is a photo of my June socks along with the notes I kept to make sure both were identical.

I have joined Sock A Month 8 Knit Along which will run from July-December. I was allowed to join a bit early and contribute socks for June as well. I am thrilled to become part of this group.

Blue Baby Socks

These little socks were made of leftover yarn from the January socks. The pattern is basic baby socks which can be found on Ravelry.
