Speaking of lots of knitting...

I just went in to check on the number of sock updates I have, and there are 51 of them. 51! That's just the number of individual e-mails I've gotten from all you sockers, so there may be even more actual socks that have been knit. Guess I'd better get started, huh?

Siri has some Regia crazy color socks that are very fall and some Lorna's Laces Fun Knits socks that are also pretty autumnal. And did you see the new issue of Knit Simple? There is an article on blogging, and Knitting Iris is listed as one of their faves! I can certainly see why - yay, Siri!

Debbie finished up a cute little baby set for a co-worker which included baby socks.

Margo made some nice plain grey socks, finished up at her SIL's b-day party.

OzKnitter made some sweet Opal Ladybug socks for the Red Sock KAL.

Eva made two pairs of socks in September but somehow her update e-mails didn't make it to me until now. Sorry, Eva!

Abigail the swap queen made some Ruby Slippers for her mom.

Kris made some lovely Hippy Crunchy Socks.

KellyD made these!



Khris made some Red Hat socks (along with dying some totally gorgeous yarn) and Princess Stomping Foot socks (along with dying some more totally gorgeous yarn).

Bettina knit up these lovely Gentleman's Fancy Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks.



Fancy, aren't they? She also made Beaudelaires:



And a 2nd pair of Socks of Doom:



Which count because she started them from scratch. And finally, yet another pair, a hybrid of Beaudelaire and the Socks of Doom (she calls them the Rib of Doom socks):



She's also started a knit-along for Eunny's "Chuck's Favorite Socks" pattern. If you like cabled socks, go check it out!

Kelly's got two pairs - green Knit Picks and Regia Bamboo.

Shelley made two cute little pairs for October.

Sonya knit up a pair of Karen's Sugar-Free Socks and finally gave into the temptation of the Koigu.

Emily made a cute pair of Fuzzy Feet:



And our last entry is from Aimee, who finished one little pair of socks this month.

Whew! That was fun, but I really need to stop putting the updates off until I have so many. You guys are just too prolific! And now, it's time for me to go to bed before I wake up at 3 am with key imprints on my forehead and drool shorting out my keyboard.

Wow, that's a lot of socks. I don't think my October socks have been credited yet - I'm sure my e-mail got lost in the rush of the other 51!! I posted them here. :)

Well, well, well. It looks like now I know where to come for the sock ogling AND the latest news. I didn't know about the Knit Simple mention until reading about it here. WOW! Thanks for letting me know! I'll have to go find a copy somewhere.
