Yesterday I mentioned that October is known as Socktober in the knitting community or with the sock knitting obsessed community. I finished my first pair and I am going to count it as a Socktober pair.
They are from Woolgirls Sock Club and it was the first kit I received on 9/15 and completed 9/30. Pretty quick for me even though I know some of you out there can finish socks in a few days or less! If my hand felt better I could do a lot of things and I am planning on seeing the OT soon to see what she can do to alleviate the pain and maybe I to can complete a pair in a week. I worked on my Solstice Slip last night and I am up to the heel so far. I decided to cast on for a new pathways sock from Cat Bordhi's new book. Its called BARTHOLOMEW'S TANTALIZING SOCKS. It uses the SKY ARCHITECTURE that I used in the baby socks I knit for my Dr's baby. I love the look of the sock and the linen stitch makes it look fabulous especially the Blue Moon Rockin' Sock yarn I am using. I also have to cast on for Knitting Centrals Sock Club sock which I posted a picture of yesterday. The reason I am holding off on starting it is that its cables and I love cables, dont get me wrong but the Solstice Slip Socks are cabled also and I can only deal with so many cables at once! The cabled tank top I havent finished is also cabled as the name implies. So you see I have lots of cables in my life right now. Well, if I want to knit some socks I better stop chit chatting and get to work!
