Birthday Socks for me!

I'm so far behind blogging! I'm not sure where all the time is going this summer, but it is slipping by quickly. In less than 2 weeks 2 of my boys will be back to school. Unbelievable!

Anyway, I have been knitting, and collecting yarn as much as I tried to convince myself to just knit from stash this summer. I've decided that one big blog post would be too much, so I'm going to try to do a number of small updates, almost daily, until I get caught up.

First up is my Birthday Socks! My mom knows how much I love my Socks That Rock so she got me a gift certificate for birthday. I spent it on this,
Apple Valley Road in mediumweight. I cast on Blackberry Brambles by Irishgirlieknits. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern. Pretty, isn't it?
I love how these striped, especially on the heel flap and the foot.
Happy Birthday to me!!!
