I had a bit of time in the passenger seat this week so made some noticeable progress on my to go socks. I just looked back and these were started in May. I'm not doing too bad with them considering how much we don't go.
I had a talk with myself and decided to love these wool socks because really I do and I can see them on my feet. I said last week that I would work on these socks before I worked on anything else. I told myself to get the heel flap and turn done and then I could cast on the August socks. So I did. I have worked on these every evening but one. Now I am anxious to get to the toes.......
So I cast on these and only worked this much at that one sitting and have left them alone until I took this picture. The Jeck socks that are now my August socks for the 12 in 2012 Challenge. These are simple yet full of texture and is a new to me pattern. I love Ravelry! Sticking to the challenge guidelines, the Soles & More yarn came from my stash. This part of the challenge is becoming a challenge for me!
I don't know if I'll be caught up before the end of the month-I'm saying probably not! I haven't even thought about the pair for September but I have some great yarn choices and after searching for the Jeck pattern, I have a bunch of new to me sock patterns in my Ravelry favorites. You can find my Ravelry profile here. I would love to add more friends.
I'll link up to Judy L at Patchwork Times as soon as she gets the linky up on her page. Keep checking and you will find other great On The Needles blog posts.
