Parade of Socks

One of my goals this summer was to get everything sorted before moving.  This means sorting out what to keep, what to give away, and what needs fixing/finishing.  I am a big sock knitter.  They are the perfect travel project, easy to memorize and very useful, especially in the cold Oberlin winters.  As such, I had a lot of old socks that needed some TLC on the weak spots to prevent darning and just as many new socks that needed finishing touches, pictures, and their internet debut.  I'll be trotting them out in the upcoming weeks. I'm rather embarrassed how long it took me to get around to some of these, but here they are....ready just in time for me to move down sweltering South.   Oh well, my feet shall be very warm in the air conditioning.  : )
