Socks for October

Today is the last day of October and the last day for Socktoberfest.  I started off this month saying that I was going to try to knit 3 pairs of socks and I actually cast on for all 3 on the first day of this month.  Two are done (yay!)  The third pair didn’t quite make the finish line and remain in a state of unravel.  Oh well, you win some you lose some.

Knitting along with so many others made this fun and extra special showing me that the knitting community is a great place to be.  New friendships have blossomed and old ones reinforced with you can do it encouragement that has been passed around.  Having a deadline helped a great deal too, sticking with these projects and getting them done – fantastic feeling!

Marlene Green Blocking

There are no modeled sock pictures in this post because right now they are damp and blocking and I didn’t want to put on a damp pair of socks even if it was for a few minutes of camera time because…. well because, eeew!!  I might just give the socks some blow dryer action later because I want to wear them already!  Anyways, pictures of my socks coming soon.

Socktoberfest was fun!

    So pretty, makes me want to cry.
    Is this Pomatomus? Clearly I haven’t stalked your Rav page yet.

    And no matter how pretty, you shouldn’t put on wet socks.
