Back in September I cast on for a pair of socks. FIVE MONTHS LATER I cast off. And here they are!
I've never had a pair of socks take me so long to finish! And I finally have something to post for Sock-A-Month KAL 7.
Here are the details:
Paca Peds #601 Singin the Blues - 20% superfine alpaca, 65% superwash wool, 15% nylon
Sock #1: 9/19 thru 11/8/08 7 weeks
Sock #2: 11/16 thru 2/7/09 10.5 weeks
60 stitches on 2.5mm dpns
3x1 rib for 4"
stst for 1" before heel
This is my typical vanilla pattern.
While the mojo is in full swing, I pulled out some Kroy sock yarn
and cast a pair of socks for Baby Girl.
Even when I encounter mojo killing obstacles
causing me to rip out and cast on again,
I take it in stride.
I'm really enjoying the changing of the colors so I should make good progress on this sock today. Could I possibly finish another pair of socks in the month of February?!?!
Remember, I have *helpers*!
