October marks the annual knitting celebration of all things footie — Socktoberfest. Today is the beginning of the sixth annual month-long sock bash that Lolly has hosted, and we are all excited to kick it off on the right foot:
As you most likely know already, socks are my favorite thing to knit.
I knit them for myself.
I knit them for other people.
I knit with intricate patterns and I knit pretty plain pairs.
I knit with variegated yarn and I knit with solid yarn. Sometimes I knit with two different yarns at once.
And sometimes I even manage to finish multiple pairs on the same day.
I have a number of socks under way already, and many more exist only in my head (and in the form of potential socks in my yarn cupboard).
I’d like to finish a pair a week — one for each weekend of the month. How many do you think I’ll actually finish?
Or, how many new pairs do you think I’ll cast on?
