Goal posts

I haven't knit any socks this month, but I finally got around to setting some sock goals.
To begin with, here is a picture of (most of) my sock stash:

It's not too bad, but I do think I need to get knitting before purchasing any more! Especially with that packet of ten balls of Patonyle under there - recently acquired from the 'Morris and Sons' (Tapestry Craft) sale.

Anyway, my goals are:

- knit socks from the stash

- knit a pair for my husband

- knit a pair of lace socks

- try new techniques

- finally finish spinning and plying the roving that I was working on this time last year, and start knitting a pair of socks with the yarn

These are ambitious goals, so I don't mind if I don't quite make them all!!

I will be using my Knitpicks dpns to knit all of these socks - they are so nice and pointy, improving the sock knitting experience!
