7 Day socks

I set myself a challenge last week after the Mother asked if the socks were ready when I hadn't started. Could I complete a pair in a week?
Obviously I can if I need to!
Diagonal rib socks designed by Ann Budd with minimal changes made by me.
Excuse my large feet in these medium socks.
 There are some recently completed blocks mostly from 'The Granny Square Book' by Margaret Hubert
Tuscan tile
The colours are the same ones I was using last month, they are brighter than they appear in the pictures here.
Tuscan tile - Savannah - and a ring in
Lots of nice blocks to try while I give the needles a break and plan the next project which may or may not be socks.
I am very pleased with the appearance of autumn here, finally and had a refreshing walk in the rain early today.
There is a little quilting going on in the background but not so much as to be photo worthy.
Hope your week is off to a beautiful start.
