Just in time

I just finished these last night. Here are my October socks!

The Details:
Pattern: My own; cuff down, 2 circular needles-"Maddy's socks"
Yarn: Friends Folly Marled Sock Yarn (50% mohair 50% wool), 2 balls
Color: purple
Gauge: 6 st/inch (unblocked)
Needles: US#4/3.5mm

I thought I was being clever this month and I knit a cute little pair of booties to fulfill my October sock obligation. But then it occurred to me that perhaps I should read the rules to make sure they qualify. I knew I remembered something about babies...Anyway, the rule is: it counts as a sock if it has a turned heel--my booties didn't count! Oh well, they're really cute and are a great way to use up extra sock yarn.
The Details:
Pattern: Saartjes bootees
Yarn:Nova Socks (100% merino superwash wool), 1 ball
Color: sorbetto
Needles: US#4/3.5mm
Notes: I made the newborn size. For the button loop, I did a 2-stitch I-cord.

You haven't heard much from me in October, but you will be sick of me by the end of November. Tomorrow starts NaBloPoMo (blog everyday for a month challenge). I hope I have enough fun ideas to make it fun. See you tomorrow...
