Do you want to…
- …personally challenge yourself to make as many socks as you can?
- …work through your yarn stash and rediscover the beauty of what you already have?
- …finish some socks that have lingered on the needles too long?
- …try a new technique to enhance your sock making repetoire?
- …simply enjoy the process of creating socks and sharing your passion with others from all over the world?
- …devote the month to make socks for your holiday gifts, or donate your finished socks to a certain charity?
It's all possible with Socktoberfest!
I am planning to work with some lovely yarns from the stash, and to finish up some "linger" knits that have been on the needles for too long. I am also planning to use some stash yarns to contribute socks for charity causes. I have heard about several worthy charitable organizations that can use our sock making skills. I am compiling a list with more details on the different organization, and I will publish this straight away.
In the meantime…
The lovely Yarn Pirate handpainted yarn is all balled up and ready to go. I did not waste any time, either. As soon as I did all of the math involved for the customized knee sock pattern, I started on these babies.
Look! No pooling!
I am officially calling these knee socks my "Hokusai" socks, after the amazing woodblock prints by the Japanese artist. And in some spare moments yesterday, I wound up the second ball of my Three Waters Farm handpaint for my second Lace (Not So) Knee Highs…
It's going to be a great month, my friends!
Thank you so much for joining in the festivities!
