Socktoberfest is here! If you've ever even glanced at this blog, you know that I enjoy
Expect to see many socks on the blog this month. I'll start with the socks I have in progress, but it won't stop there. So many of my best socks were knit pre-blog, so I'll share many of them, along with invaluable comments on how they've stood the test of time.
New England Socks from Knitting on the Road
These were supposed to be my 100th pair of socks (I'm still holding at 98) in a symbolic way before I left New England. Eh. They'll go fast once I actually start knitting on them. I think this is Koigu, but it might be Artyarns Supermerino.
Wearing My Uniform With Pride Socks (x2)
Plain Black Sockotta. 2x2 rib. Doesn't it just make your heart go pitter-patter?
I did Trek Along, briefly. Now these socks sit by my computer and I do a few rows now and again.
Can that really be it? Only 3 pairs of socks on the needles? (And, really, only one of them counts.) Clearly something must be done to remedy this situation.
In the festival-like spirit of Socktoberfest, I'll send two skeins of Claudia's Handpainted (photos when I get home) to whomever points me in the direction of my next sock pattern. Anything by Nancy Bush is cheating, by the way.
ETA: I'll make a decision on Monday, October 9th. Columbus Day.
