I'm in a Sock of The Month Club at my LYS, Yarn Cravin'. It started in January of this year. Nearly each month we have a new sock pattern and new yarn introduced, and we have been challenged by new techniques, such a learning how to knit a sock from the toe up. It has been so much fun, but there were some months I never even got to start the sock for that month and I fell further and further behind, or I have one sock partially completed, and the second sock is nowhere in sight.
Case in point. Here is the yarn we received in January.
Beautiful, isn't it? Lovely yarn from Khris, of Chewy Sphaghetti. The colorway is "Haven" and it was dyed just for our sock club. The pattern is Right Twist Cable from the book Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd. (If you don't have this book in your library, don't wait any longer!)
One glance at the calendar will show that is now mid-October. My pair of socks is just now finished. Yes, the socks from January. They weren't hard to knit. (In fact, most of sock number two was knit during the three hours I supervised a one-on-one PSAT and ACT test administration for students who needed small group accommodations earlier this week.)
But, the socks are finished. All along the way, from January until now, I worked on other things, started other socks, even learned to spin! You all know that's on top of working full time, being a mom, running a house and dealing with a crazy mess of an ex.
I can also say I have one more UFO off the list.
