Socktoberfest Socks

We're three days into Socktoberfest so where's my sock entry?

Behind as usual but I am working on a sock - ALWAYS have a sock in progress!

My regular top down sock pattern in Opal Rainforest Chameleon.
I learned, and still use as my basic sock pattern, from the Ann Norling pattern #12 Basic Adult Socks.

Socks are my portable project for appointments and meetings; I always have one on the needles. No problem with SSS (single sock syndrome
) as I cast on the next sock, whether it's the second with the same yarn or new yarn, as soon as I finish a sock. I always try to keep one sock at the leg or foot section so I can have rounds of knit only which I can do without looking. I do try to always sit in the back at meetings so as not to be too noticible or distracting. No complaints so far.

Usually I'm project oriented and once I've made a pattern I'll never repeat but socks just seem to always be at hand when I need distraction.

What have I bought recently??

More Sock yarn, silly!

This is from Little Knits, superwash merino dyed by Fleece Artist. The green and brown called Woodland is fabulous. Think I'll have to cast on with this soon, I'm a sucker for anything green. The other two are: Tiger and Hercules.

That's it for my opening Socktoberfest bog.
