This years goal was to lose 30 lbs and make 150 pr of socks

Well, no one has mistaken me for a Swedish super model so obviously the sock knitting has gone much better.
These are the 150 pr of socks for CIC all finished, paired, and laid out on my back deck for a quick picture before the rain.
Next step is to box them up and pop them in the mail on Tuesday. These were so much fun to make ..... don't think I'll be saying the same thing about losing the rest of the weight.

Holy cow! I applaud you. That there is ALOT of socks.

About the weight, keep on trucking. I could murmur other weight loss platitudes, but I haven't read enough of your blog to know about your dieting sitch. So, I will just say that anyone who can knit 50 pairs of socks... holy cow again... can definitly keep up the good work with her weight loss, even if it requires some Dr's help.

Wowie! That is just an amazing set of socks! You outdid yourself! I love making socks for cic, but I have to mail them once a month or two just to make room in the house! What a treat to see 150 pairs!!
