Here are the socks I made at the retreat. Only two pair because I also took classes on a different way to dye yarn and make socks with beads. It was a great retreat, but now I have to kitchner the toes closed and take off the hideous yellow waste yarn. I'm not in a hurry because these socks aren't for anyone special. I need to make more just to have a supply for gift giving and some times people contact me to buy home made socks.
I went to a sock machine retreat last weekend finally! I needed to get away and renew my sock knitting ability. It was great to be with my friends and sell some of my yarn stash. Oh and I sold a Legare 47 sock machine too. It was the last of my stash of fixer-upper machines, so that part of my hobby is over because it can be stressful.

My Goldie Sox machine (New Zealand Auto Knitter) is my favorite by far, but this time I decided to take my first machine (Canadian Auto Knitter) and renew my relationship with "her". She is a great friend and never skips a stitch! I had forgotten just how special she is, so here she is in all her glory.
