If you have been reading my blog for a while you will remember that my favorite thing to knit is socks. I am crazy for them! They are fun, portable, and there are so many different patterns and ways to knit them you could never get bored. I have been itching to cast on a pair of socks lately. Especially with my Autumn Haze afghan getting too big to lug around.
Last year in January I had a great idea to match up some of my sock yarn stash with patterns that I wanted to knit. I could bag them up and they would be ready to go. My own sock-of-the-month club. Well, I never got around to actually bagging them up and I think that was my downfall.
I am getting a late start this year but I am excited about using my stash and knitting some of the patterns I have always wanted to. I meant to just start by bagging up 6 but I couldn’t stop. It was just too fun shopping out of my stash!
Anita is going to do it to and we would love anyone else who wants to, to join in! You can knit the sock pattern we are knitting or another one that you’ve been dying to knit. Sometimes Anita and I will be working on a different pattern. It is all about knitting what you want to.
We are starting with the Diagonal Lace Socks in the book Socks From The Toe Up by Wendy Johnson.
I am using this gorgeous Heritage Paints sock yarn by Cascade. It is red with bits of dark blue in it. I can’t wait to see it knit up.
Let me know if you want to join in and what sock pattern you are starting with. This is going to be fun!
