So Comfy - and some WIPs

Well, here they are! ! ! I made the cuff a little short and very loose. I love the way they fit. Though I think casting on only eight stitches [toe-up] left them a little pointy and so I cast on sixteen on the pair I started with the Opal yarn.
Ahhh, another view of my feet, sox and the Socka Colori. Love this self-patterning yarn.
This pair made with the Opal [cast on 16 sts] was started so that I can knit-along with a dear friend who got me interested in Magic Loop knitting. We began these socks Monday and will meet again when we both get the the heel. We'll work that together and then we'll be home free.
The foot and cuff will be in a K1P1 ribbing. However, - - -

this pair of Regia cuff down] is Melissa's Sugar Maple pattern. Such delicate little twists. It's a fun [reads easy!] pattern with terrific results. I'm in love.
I know I have several WIPs going but it's hard to stay on one fabulous yarn when there are more waiting to slip through my fingers.
BTW, that's my Vintage Stitches Thimbleberries quilt. Daughter Debbie did the coloring with crayons and heat set them so the colors will stay.
Now that I've my X-Block demo for our Quiltin' Chicks Social given Thursday evening, and my X-Block Workshop project finished for show-n-tell at the quilt guild in Columbia this afternoon, I can relax for a bit. [I'll post pics of my workshop wallhanging in the next couple of days. It turned out great.]
