Last month I signed on to take the 12 in 2012 Challenge with Denise at Justquiltin. I had 2 single socks that were lonely for their mates. Part of the challenge is to try new designs, along with using up the yarn stash. I have a stash, not as extensive as others but I have one that I want to use.
Most evenings, I have spent working on sock 2 and I'm happy to say it is now finished. I used Serenity Sock Weight-Deborah Norville Collection from Premier Yarns. I can't wait to wear them.
February's project is the mate for this Paraphernalia sock. I learned to do cables and read a chart but this sock has been finished since August and I'm afraid I may have forgotten what I was doing. I had such good intentions to start sock 2. But I didn't until last night. After a false start and a restart, the ribbing is going smooth.
I didn't buy this yarn, I won it from Judy L-so technically I didn't fall off the wagon like someone else did. She wrote this funny post and I entered her drawing and won. Lucky Me!! So I went to Springtree Road and picked this fabulous Muscadine Sock yarn. I had such a time picking which color I wanted and finally decided on Shiraz. It is so gorgeous and so soft. Thank you Judy for picking my name!!! Maybe this will be my March project.
I'm going to try really hard to get ahead on the sock count for when summer and canning season hit. Just think if I continue on, by the end of the year the lid to the yarn bin will close without a bulge.
