A few days ago I noticed the #12sock tag on Twitter. Following a few links I found this gorgeous photo of a drawer full of hand-made socks on 12 Sock Project Blog. The idea being to make twelve pairs of socks over twelve months.
Now, I may have mentioned my love of hand-made socks once or twice, so I decided to join in (not that I need anything more on my to do list, but.. you know…)
So, I rooted around my box of yarn I’d been saving for socks and decided to start with a purple pair, I chose to knit Monkey Socks, by Cookie A.
The first attempt were too big, the second attempt too small, the third attempt are still a little too big, but I am NOT knitting them again. I blame my cat, who chewed up the bamboo dpn’s in the size I needed. The pattern was very well written and easy to follow, the only problem I had with it was when it was very late, I was very tired, and was reading Sl1 as S11.. and wondering what on earth S11 meant.. *rolls eyes*
So, my first pair are done.. Think I will do Hedera next 😀
