Now with More Knitting

It has been a shamefully long time since I put up a picture of a new knitting project.  So, without further ado, the newest socks:

They are called Xanthophyll and are knit with the lovely Zoe Sock from Shalimar Yarns in the color Sapote.  This is one of the yarns I got at Sock Summit in exchange for a design.  Zoe is a nice crisp merino and is a treat to work with.  The skein has a generous 450 yards, and yellow is The Boy’s favorite color, so it seemed obvious that this yarn should turn into socks for him.  They were my vacation knitting while we were in Maine, and that thing in the background is the ocean…far more picturesque than anything to be found in my back yard.

I’ve got other knitting (another pair of brand new socks) and a shocking number of yarn purchases to show off over the next few days, but now I must go tackle the rather alarming pile of vacation laundry that followed me back from Maine.
