TWO DAYS MY FRIENDS!
Socktoberfest kicks off bright and early Sunday morning!
Start your hooks and needles!
And wouldn't you know? I am planning ahead too! (I seem to have way too many plans of late…) So, I made some attainable goals for Socktoberfest:
Finish the Lace (Not So) Knee Highs, which really don't photograph well, but are amazingly beautiful – trust me!
…finish sock one and move onto sock two…
As I was winding my skein of this lovely Yarn Pirate sock yarn, my eyes wandered over to one of my art books on Hokusai's Japanese woodblocks. It amazed me to see that the colorway "Cannon Beach" is so similar to the color palette in the 18th-century prints. The woodblock prints have been an artistic inspiration for me, and now I am feeling super great and inspired to work on these new socks!
Hokusai is probably best known for his woodblock print, In the Hollow of a Wave off the Coast at Kanagawa, which also has the same colors as my new yarn!
What plans do you have for Socktoberfest?
Looking for some inspiration of the sock kind? Check out some of the blogs on the Socktoberfest Participant List, and there is always the Socktoberfest Flickr group (which also has some great discussions topics started up!)
Can you feel the excitement?
