      This is my happy face with 😍eyes. Yes, it looks kind of rugged. Maybe hiking socks?

    Finally posting my socks that I started in January. I took them off the needles last night. I used the January picture of my kitchen table view of our garden pond for my inspiration of color and yarn choice. I also used it for my pattern choice, so I guess that maybe qualifies as extra entries?? No matter, but I am looking forward to wearing them, now that there is still snow on the ground and more on the way, with subzero temps coming up. I ran outside in the 11 degree (F) weather to sneak a picture of these this morning. I wanted something different than my same-ol, same-ol indoor pics.

    The yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-ply in Owl Colorway for main part and Poppy Seed colorway for the contrast yarn. I used Cat Bordhi's Darjeeling pattern from The Signature Book of Socks as my design feature, partly because I thought the name was reminding me of drinking hot tea on a freezing winter day! I did adapt it to use Fish Lips Kiss heel pattern, so the sole and heel are done a bit differently. I'm re-posting the picture I used for my inspiration. I think I just may wear them today!!

      Thanks, Ladies. lovestostitch - I did post an entry for the beginning with my starting picture and the theme and color. Just didn't finish them in time! This is my entry for a finished pair in February, I guess.

    I finished my first ever full-sized sock! I've made a pair of baby booties before, but this is my first adult sock and I have to say, I think I'm an addict! I have really big feet, so I am generally consigned to wearing men's socks and not cute girly socks and now that I know how easy it is, I'm going to be making a LOT more! This is my first of a pair that I'm making with pink and cream Hygge yarn that my daughter-in-law gave me and I can't wait to get the second one done so I can wear these soft, warm, CUTE slipper socks all the time!

      That is a beautiful first sock! As you've already heard, we have a lot of big feet in this group. I learned to knit so I could make myself some warm wool socks in girly colors. I was tired of wearing men's socks.

      “I’m secretly making an extra pair every few months to hide away so that she can have them someday when I'm gone. Hopefully a lifetime supply of socks.”

      KnitsWithHorses oh my goodness - that is lovely. 🥰

    I finished these a couple days ago, but forgot to post them. I used up some sock leftovers, it’s my own pattern.

      Thank you, Pegg Thomas KnitsWithHorses and lovestostitch 😊

      This yarn was leftover from another sock, I made both pair short cuffs, so I just used up the remainder. I hand dyed the yarn using regular liquid food coloring in “neon” colors. It’s very bright, but will fade a little after several washings.

      You're really cranking then out this month! I love those colors too. 😁

    I've finished my first pair of socks for myself and I love them! Since this is the first time I've finished something for this SAL, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do a separate post for each category they tick off, or just one and list what they meet. If someone could let me know if I'm supposed to do multiple posts or just the one and list what criteria they meet, I would be very appreciative! These obviously meet the finished pair and color (pink) and they also meet the love because they are both my favorite color, and the yarn was given to me by someone I love very much.

      Your socks are so pretty. As KnitsWithHorses said, you can post up to four posts for each finished pair. The reason you do separate posts is that I use an online random number generator for the prize drawing. If you notice, each post has a number so each post is an entry for winning the prize! That's also why we appreciate people not making chat posts in the finished thread. You can chat and compliment people as a comment under their post because that doesn't affect the drawing. There's no limit on how many pairs you can knit and post so keep knitting. We're glad you got the sock bug!

      And posting once more for the theme of the month, love! Pink is my favorite color, so I love this yarn, and this yarn was given to me by my daughter-in-law, who I love very much, both because she loves my son dearly and because she is just an awesome person, and I'm so glad she is in my life!

      Here are my February socks! They didn't turn out like I first envisioned, but they morphed into socks I really like. The brown stripe at the toes might be my favorite touch.

      Another entry for theme: love
      There are knit/purt hearts in the brown yarn, and then the color pattern hearts where it changes from brown to pink mid-foot.

        Another for color: PINK!
        I don't wear pink much, but I like it mixed with other colors, and this soft brown seemed a good pairing. This "pink" is Jacquard Vermillion dye, used sparingly, and it's more of a mauve or plum color ... but pink enough.

          One done. I really like that this yarn has little flecks of color in the light pink so it doesn't look like a plain self striping.

            lovestostitch - The pattern is a modification of the SKYP sock. KnitsWithHorses - The main color is a medium gray, I couldn’t get the lighting right, so it looks more green. I’ll try to do better when I post the finished socks 😊

            Actually on my laptop it looks gray. I guess it was the color on my phone that made it look camo green. lol
