Summer of socks 2008

Photobucket


These days, all I want to do is knit socks. Mostly because I want to use my sock yarn, so I can buy new sock yarn without feeling guilty.

So I decided to join in on the fun of Summer of Socks 2008. It starts on June 21st, until September 1st.

I didn't enter the "most knit socks" contest, because I'll be lucky if I finish two pairs (I am still planning on knitting other things). I also didn't enter the "vacation" contest, because my vacation will be in September, most likely.

I just decided to set my own personal sock knitting goals. I would like to finish the second Cable net sock (I'm actually hoping to finish it before the Summer of Socks starts, but we'll see). And then I'd like to knit three pairs of socks. Not sure I can do it, but I sure will try.

I WILL NOT BUY ANY SOCK YARN UNTIL THE END OF THE SUMMER.

The Lotus Yarn sock club yarn doesn't count because it's already bought. Oh and I still have some gift certificate from Effiloché that I might use to buy sock yarn. Ok screw what I just wrote, I will most likely buy sock yarn. Which is why I need to knit socks.

Speaking of which, did you see the Knitty surprises? The sweater is very nice (Tempest), but I don't think I'll ever knit it. But the socks (Froot Loop) are already in my queue!

Ok look at the time. I need to get ready for work (of course that happens when all I really want to do is look at patterns online or knit!)

I like Froot Loop too! It's really nice! I don't think I would make the sweater either.

I better get your June Sock Club kit to you before June 21st then, it's Jenn's kit - you're taking one right? ;) It's an "ALL MONTREAL" kit for June. I have your name down for one (since it's almost sold out) so just let me know (you never got back to me by email I don't think? Or am I having pregnancy brain?) whether you wanted to keep your reservation? Anyhow, let me know!

Good luck with summer of socks!

Ok, you made me do it, I've signed up for SOS 08! Hopefully it'll motivate me to knit yet more socks. ;)

I just queued the Froot Loop socks as well! And I know what you mean about only wanting to sit and knit. I'm going back to work on Monday, and I'm dreading the loss of knitting time!
