I had big plans for Socktober, but unfortunately I fell far short of my goal. I already showed you the socks that I finished for the Hazel Knits mystery Sock, so I did complete at least one pair of socks. Let me show you what else I was working on.
I had cast on the Through the Loops Mystery sock from 2008 for the September SKA challenge. About half way down the leg I decided I better try them on because the cable seemed to have very little give. Good thing I did because it was more snug than I like my socks to be. So I ripped it out and started over with the 72 stitch size. 8 little stitches doesn't seem like much, but my goodness, it seemed to increase the knitting time 10 fold! I finished the first sock a couple days ago. There is no way I'll be able to make the second sock by the end of the month.
Wanida by Cookie A in Socks That Rock colorway ........... Rocktober! I loved how it was striping in the ribbing, then I moved on to the pattern and it started pooling wickedly. Here's one side....
February Lady Sweater out, figured out where I left off, and started knitting again. I had forgotten how much I love this pattern! I was able to add about 4 inches to the length this week. If I keep this pace up, I should be finishing this beauty in less than 2 weeks!
Knitquest's A Sweater for All Seasons Club? I'm so excited about this. Flint is the first sweater in the club and I have been waiting for this pattern to be released for a while. I signed up for the club right away and decided on In the Navy for my color. The yarn arrived earlier this week.
