Following yesterday's blog post, I have decided to set myself a challenge for 2009. I have picked out 12 skeins of sock yarn -one for each month - and I am going to knit each pair of socks using a different pattern, rather than the Violet Green sock generator that I usually use. I have a couple of sock books that should prove helpful: Vogue Knitting - the Ultimate Sock Book and Sensational Knitted Socks, so I am hoping to overcome my usual problem with resizing. It was a tricky choice, rummaging in the (large) box of sock yarn, but here's my final twelve:
I shall, no doubt, be making some other knitterly resolutions before January 1st. And I shall report back this time next year on the success of my 2009 Sock Challenge! Watch this space! In the meantime, have a very Happy Christmas, and at least one squishy parcel to open!
