2008 is going to be my year of the Sock.
Too much sock yarn stash, too many sock patterns in my Ravelry queue. Its a mess! The aim is to try and finish one pair of socks a month, but in reality it will probably be one pair every 2 months. (Socks I design for other people dont count ;D).
I dont really want to do much in the way of New Years Resolutions, and not buying yarn is pretty impossible with me (i.e. Live2Knit has 25% off everything at the moment, and I just reworked my food budget for the next fortnight so I could buy some laceweight. I only now realise how tragic that sounds.)
THE LIST (of doom)
1. Snicket Socks (from MagKnits), in The Knittery slim merino, 'Petals' pink colourway. For me. Tre girly. ;D
2. Carolina (by MonkeyToes), in Lincraft HotSocks - my flatmate would love another pair for her birthday - these are it. Umm... the link is expired but I have these printed out.
3. Fawkes (by MonkeyToes), in Noro? Not sure.
4. Spiral Eyelet Socks
5. Wyvern Socks (by Marnie Mclean), I just love the dragon-scales effect. Some yummy green Lornas Laces for this one.
6. Nagini (by Monkey Toes)
7. Twinkleberry (by Knitzi)
8. Marilinda (by CookieA)
9. Primavera Socks
I think that will do for the moment.... I just cast on a pair of basic rib socks for The Boi, in a 70's inspired self-strip yarn from Lincraft - its all browns, yellows and oranges - he really likes it. They'll be my first month socks (hopefully), and all ready for hys birthdayin March.
I also have the 2nd Varanasi sock half finished - once i've done that one I can start on The List of Doom.
Off to collect my Noro Sock-Crack from the TC Snb tonite - cant wait!
