Summer of Socks 2008

Why not join? You've got till May 15th.



If your not familiar with it, it's pretty simple. You sign up and knit socks during the summer. Well... it could be much more. I just don't see my self winning The Most Socks Knit category.

So, want to know what I did today? I did the kitchener stitch today. Which means...



I finished the March Rockin Sock Club package... Leafling.

I had no clue how, although I've done it before. So I went searching for a tutorial and just about spit my coffee up this morning when I saw this. How are you suppose to see the "how to" beyond the huge size 15 needles? Found a great video at Knitting at Knoon and watched it over and over and a third time just to make sure.

I think I should take a break from socks...work on the Fulmar, perhaps pull out that Sahara I shoved in the back of my closet.

Happy Friday!

Why not join? Um. I think I overdid the socks last summer. But then again, it was fun! Decisions, decisions....

I have a second sock on the needles and another pair started, and I haven't even started the next pair in my DIY Sock Club . . . I'm sort of off socks somehow and these are taking me forever to finish . . . so I'm going to pass on joining. Your Leaflings are gorgeous!
