The weather’s cooler (a little, anyway) and the needles are still a-clickin’ away. Read on about the sock-a-rific progress these folks are making…

From Melinda’s group:
Pat’s vacation socks were missed in the week 9 update with all the technical
difficulties I have been having of late.
Pat while on
vacation in mid august, managed to finish her Setesdal Socks using Cherry
Tree Hill Supersock Merino yarn in Champlain Sunset and Natural. They’re
a piece of art!
This week Pat has finished her “I Love Gansey” socks by Janine Le Cras
using Silja Superwash Yarn and has three more pairs of socks on the
needles. The patterns for two of the three pairs are: Fair Game by Robyn
Gallimore using Lana Grossa Bosco and Stile Yarn as well as Maia’s
Mystery Socks in Posh Yarn “Emily” Arcadia colourway. Fingers crossed
they will be done by the 21st!
Pam has had
a rough few weeks of late, but is back to knitting starting with a pair of
Jaywalkers. She hopes to finish the Jaywalkers this week along with her
second chocolate cherry sock. These two pairs will add to a grand total of 11
pairs of socks so far. Not bad for a gal who only started to knit socks at
the beginning of this years SOS. Way to go Pam!
From Carole Knits group:
Just another wee report from this group. Carole knit Loksins! in the perfect shade of green.
And Bridget finished a beautiful pair of Charade socks in the much coveted Wollmeise.
Just one more week to get those updates in!

From Dee’s group:
Once again, I have just one entry for this week. I present … Victor!
Victor is insanely happy to have his own pair of Jaywalkers in a nice bright Opal yarn. Go check out what’s making Victor so happy and while you are there, take a moment to congratulate him on his new job! Congrats, Victor!
From April’s group:
Another short update as the Summer of Socks nears its close.
Before jetting off to Hawaii, Adelle started work on Roza’s sock pattern from the Spring 2007 Interweave Knits. Aloha!
Adrienne has two more pairs of socks to show us this week. Well, sort of. She can’t show us the entire socks because they are off to Blue Moon Fiber Arts first. She’s made 5 this summer, 2 of which she is able to keep.
And now for more fair news. Amy J. won first prize at the Dakota County Fair for her Child’s French Socks. She’s also made a lot of progress on her Plain Jane socks. We’ve now had 2 SOS-ers rock the fair. Congratulations, Amy!
Jen has finished her Liebchen (aka Baby Cable Rib) socks just in time for her trans-Atlantic move. Good luck, Jen.
Amanda has finished her Granite Jaywalkers and is working on her last SOS pair, Sunset Socks.
Angela Marie has made some progress on her second Dream Sock, and has begun another pair of Monkey Socks.
Aquaknits has some gorgeous photos this week of her Eleanor Socks. She’s also started on Little Child’s Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks.
Anna had some time to work on her current pair of her “Knittin’ like a Rock Star Handspun” socks this week. She even had a chance to work on them at a faculty retreat she attended. They look great.
From Barb’s group:
From Jeanie’s group:
Holly, back from a family vacation in China, found socks in progress that she thought were left on the airplane. You’ll never guess where they were . . . but you can find out on her blog!
Janelle started a new pair, Grumperina’s Roza Socks in gray Koigu. You can see them at the beach on her blog.
Becky finished her Broadripple socks and started a pair of cable rib socks from Interweave’s Favorite Socks book.
That’s it for this week!
From Megan’s group:
This week, Miss Scarlett shares some posts about her most recent sock in progress, Nagini. Monica shows us a finished pair of Baudelaires in the most luscious of colors. How does she turn these out so quickly? Lovely work, ladies!
From Tina’s group:
Just one update today: Shannon H. is showing off her new sock yarn and her lovely Ravelry Summer Camp Swap package!
From Jen’s group:
‘m a little sad that Summer is winding down. I’ve found great inspiration in reading about everyone’s socks. Some folks are still going strong, though, and I suspect that not just a few of you will transition to Socktoberfest quite easily.
Up this week, FOs abound.
Super Summer of Socks hostess, Jessica, whipped up a pair of stockinette beauties in Cascade Fixation for her mom. The picot bind-off for the toe-up socks is a nice, girly touch. Later in the week she wrapped up her stunning Denmark socks, a Nancy Bush pattern from “Knitting on the Road.” Check out the little details on the cuff - something you don’t see too often.
Jeanne also completed a pair of Nancy Bush socks. Check out her Child’s First Socks from “Knitting Vintage Socks.” These don’t technically count for Summer of Socks socks since she started them in March, but who cares? They’re gorgeous in Sophie’s Toes Waterlilly colorway. Jeanne’s not quite done yet. She’s got a cute little beaded number on the needles in Lorna’s Laces.
Mathgirl finished up a pair of Jaywalkers in a rawkin’ cool pink, white and black. This is the best pair of Jaywalkers I’ve ever seen.
And of course Jeannie is still going strong. She cranked out four pairs of socks since my last report, bringing her total up to 34 pairs! If you’re looking for holiday inspiration, check out Jeannie’s piratey Jack Sparrow socks (#31) and her Trick or Treat stripey socks in LoveSticks yarn (#32).
Jessica E. knit a pair of the knew Wendy Knits pattern, Double Eyelit Ribbed Socks. Like, I love the hot pink. For sure. She’s got her eighth SoS pair on the needles in the latest Rockin’ Sock Club yarn.
Jo finally finished her Fawkes socks. She even convinced herself to undo the grafting on the toe of one sock in order to make it a smidge bigger. Way to be tenacious! Not sure I have it in me to undo grafted toes.
Some are still hard at it, aiming for a big finish next week.
Jen of Legal Needles has been battling a busy Summer, and hasn’t quite finished a pair of socks yet. She hasn’t given up, though. Her Clementine socks are still on the docket and now she’s got Gigi Silva’s Gwen on the needles, which she’s knitting using the magic loop technique for the first time. Jen, you’ve still got time! We’re rooting for you!
Itchy Fingers Jess ended up frogging her toe-up socks, and has turned her attention to some “no-think” socks in a cute yarn from Dashing Dachs. And she’s still plugging away at her Double Eyetlit Ribbed Socks.
Jessica is gearing up for her next pair of socks. She’s got her new Woolgirl Sock Club yarn and KnitPicks Harmony needles itching to cast on.
And last but not least, Tua Bella Jen volunteered to be a Sockapalooza Sock Savior. She’s mulling over a few Cookie A. patterns, which are sure to cheer up her abandoned pal
