I actually have TWO pairs of socks on the needles at one time!!! I have my Knitting Olympic socks on one set and a pair for my son out of Lion Brand Magic Stripes on another pair. This is a first for me, as I have only had enough needles to do one pair at a time, but that gift of needles from my friend will let me have 5 pairs going at once...don't think I'm ready for that yet. :) I will get there some time. Just remembering what I'm doing on each of the ones on the needles right now is hard.

The Knitting Olympic socks are down past the heel turn and 5" into the foot, which has to be 9" before the toe decreases, so the first one is going along nicely. I'm usually just at the heel at this time on a sock. The other pair is still on the leg, but I mainly knit on those in the evening when it is to dark to work on the other pair, since they are a basic stockinette stitch sock.

When I finish these two pairs, I will have enough yarn to make Bob one more pair and me two more pairs. Then I will either have to spin or go buy more yarn. It is amazing that I'm almost out of yarn after 3 years of having more than I thought I would ever get knitted up. I would like to get some solid colors to go with what is left of the Brown Sheep Wildfoote Rock and Roll yarn that I have. Then I would do me a pair with color work on the cuff, but that is if I can find some that will go with it.

I found out that my granddaughter wants a RED skirt, so I will have to get some yarn for that. I might get some other colors as well, depending on what I can find that I like and think would look good on her.
