Four days into Socktoberfest, and the spirit is palpable, people! There are knitters making socks left and right – Ravelry’s Socktoberfest forum is a chatty place, and Twitter is even getting some action with the #Socktoberfest tag!
Some people have already finished a pair of socks (I don’t know how they do it!) and many others have cast on and are planning more projects for these 31 days of fun.
I am starting the heel of my own sock #1 (the Flammegarn pattern from the previous post) and planning my next pair. I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of socks in my Ravelry queue, so I decided to go back to something that I know I love and get a lot of enjoyment from: traditional colorwork patterns. So, I am putting together plans for another pair of socks from one of the Nancy Bush books – or possibly adapting a mitten pattern into a sock. (Anyone have any tips on this? specifically with the charting?) I am planning to just go for it – going back to those fearless roots! I just have to make my mind up which pattern to do! It’s great to be so excited about socks and knitting again!
Many thanks for the comments and the interest in the Blushing Lace Cowl! I am happy that so many people are still reading (and commenting) at LollyKnitting Around after all these years
I have a winner for the Kidsilk Haze giveaway: Andrea at Life on Laffer!
