    This thread is for your finished socks. Posts should be finished socks only but you may give compliments as Comments below the post. We do this to make it easier to pick a winner with a random number generator. Please feel free to chat away in our Sock KAL Chat thread.

    We have a prize drawing at the end of each month. The prize winner is selected by random number generator and each entry is a chance to win the prize. You are eligible for up to four entries. Please make a seperate post for each entry. You may post the following entries:
    1. Picture of the first finished sock (or two through the heels). Any socks started this month count.
    2. Picture of a completed pair. Any socks completed this month count. Socks started before the beginning of the month may be finished and entered as a completed pair.
    3. Picture of a finished pair that uses a pattern that goes with the monthly theme. Please include the name of your pattern and how it coordinates with the theme.

    Two socks finished through the heels. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll fingering, “Pumpkin”. This is the first time I did a the FLK heel with a cuff down sock. Works great!

    Here's my first sock for myself from what was left of the yarn I used for my sister-in-law's socks last month. I had to use some plain grey yarn I had for the heels, but this used almost exactly half of what I had left of the striped yarn. I was shocked, it's a shortie, but it is for my 11WW feet and the whole thing only used a total of 30 grams of yarn! I really love how cute this yarn is, even using it to fit my huge feet it is just as cute as the ones for my sister-in-law's tiny feet! ❤️💛💙🖤

    I finished my second stripey shorty sock for myself. This pair took a bit more finagling to come out close to identical than the ones I made for my sister-in-law last month, and they didn't come out completely identical, but they are close enough that you have to really look to see the differences. The only exception is on the first sock where there is a solid blue line, a solid grey line, and a solid white line, rather than the faux fair isle sections, but that was the yarn and I couldn't do anything about it. I'm still super pleased with how cute they came out! Together they are barely 60 grams and I actually had enough left over that I could have easily done the heels in the same yarn, but I like it with the grey heels, and they also give me the extra entry for the July color, so it's all good!

      I finally finished two socks through the heels between packing and unpacking. I had to sit and rest sometime, so got them finished. Yarn is KP Stroll in Rainstorm Heather, a beautiful blue-green.

        PurlgirlButtons thank you 😊 I hope to have them finished later today. Our administrator says there’s a lady here who is a big knitter. We haven’t had any time to attend the social gatherings, but I’m looking forward to meeting her very soon 😀😀

      I finished my first zig-zag lace two-color sock. The pink is a hand-dyed cashmere/superwash blend that a friend gave me, and it is SO pretty (so much prettier than it looks in the picture, it's actually a hot pink variegated with almost white pale pink and almost lavender) and SO soft! I'm really happy with how well it turned out and can't wait to finish the second one so I can wear them!

      A pair completed through the heels. Pattern is PB & W by Adrienne Fong. Yarn is Felici “Whatsits Galore” and Stroll “Dandelion” for heels (and maybe toes). I’m working at matching the stripes 😊😊😊

        I love that Felici color-combo. Lately, I haven't seen any Felici that I like. It doesn't matter, though, I have stash!!!

        Felici and Stroll are my new favorites for socks 😊. I bought a bunch a while ago from Char ‘s yarn shop

        I've been calling them my "Sleeping Beauty" socks. I couldn't decide if I liked the pink or blue better, so they ended up being both! 💗💙

      And for the bonus entry! I am not a fan of horror movies, and since most shark movies tend to be horror movies, I wasn't so sure I would even try to get this entry. I am, however, a fan of D-list movies that are so horrible they are laughable (blame my brothers for introducing me to MST3K when I was about 12!). So, I looked for a really bad shark movie and stumbled across Ouija Shark! (No, I promise, it's MUCH worse than it sounds!!!) Fortunately, I was knitting, so didn't have to pay too much attention to the movie, because it was sooooooooooooo bad! But, I got my picture of my knitting with sharks on the screen...yes, it IS a ghost shark that chased a bunch of 30-somethings pretending to be teenagers through the woods. I did say it was worse than it sounded! 😱🤦‍♀️

        I laughed thinking about you watching it. The one I watched (Toxic Shark) was really bad too but that made it fun!
