Hope your all having a lovely end of summer.
We've been getting rain from Hurricane Isaac up here in Tennessee, So it's been PERFECT weather for knitting!
It's been a little cooler successfully putting me in a Sock knitting mood.
I stumbled upon a group on ravelry.com "Sock Knitters Anonymous" and there having a monthly Challenge for sock knitters who want to join! so of course i had too! and i'm having SO much fun!
I've already started stock piling sock yarn for the projects, I've ordered some on Etsy and i'm impatiently awaiting there arrival!
I started one pair of "Mystery Sock" where you get a clue every Saturday for 3 weeks so you don't know what your sock looks like till the end!
And there's beads in them! Which I've never done before and I LOVED it!

Excuse the grainy picture it was taken at night with my iPhone.
But Isn't it exciting not knowing what the finished sock will look like?!
And then after starting these I was well and truly in a sock mood so i cast on another pair. The pattern is Pillars it's only available as a free download on ravelry.
Some Friends came over (who just moved down from Connecticut!! SO exciting! well have lots of crafty days together now!)
