Sock knitting once more

I have certainly missed my sock knitting while I have been quilting and sewing and making art all summer and fall. I am looking forward to teaching the toe-up sock knitting workshop at the Creative Threads Conspiracy at the end of the month.
I have discovered two sock projects in progress. Now I just hope that I can remember what I was doing in each case . . .

One sock fully complete, and lots of yarn left for its sister.

A classic and beautiful toe-up sock!

Tubular sewn cast-off for a flexible and beautiful finish on the cuff.

Love these colours. And as theses socks are on my favourite Addi lace circular needle, I better get knitting so the needle is available for other projects.
