My Goals

Hi Everyone!

This is my first post here and looking at all your beautiful socks it's really inspired me to try and finish all of mine. One pair are for me but the others are intended to be presents.

At the moment I am working on Embossed Leaves sock but haven't touched them for a few weeks. I am knitting these in Cherry Tree Hills Super Sock Merino Tropical Storm colourway.

My challenge is to finish socks which I've started and are singletons (as Monica puts it). Sounds easy doesn't it? But somehow I think it's easier said then done.

They are:

Gentleman's Fancy Socks in Lorna's Laces - Black Purl

Self striping - Denim Girl by Katt's Hand Dyed Yarns, knitted on two circulars which I am finding extremely hard to do, I prefer using dpn's. So learning to knit on two circulars may never happen.

The other socks that I've started on and would like to finish are these socks designed by my blog friend and sock pal from last year Monica. I am knitting these in Cashmere merino 4ply from The Knittery in the Dark Reds colourway.

Ok, I guess that's about it for today, I've been on the net all day today, blogging, Ravelry shopping, etc, etc. So much for house work!

House work? What's that?!

Socks on circulars was one of my challenges for this KAL. I really am considering dropping it. Like you, I'm perfectly happy with dpns.

Those socks in the picture are a truly gorgeous colour.

I can't remember what housework is either!!

Housework?! Bah!

BTW - are those home-made corrugated cardboard sock-blockers??

Just had a closer look and the sock-blockers are clearly the real deal - I'm such a twit!
