Sock Sunday


I always start out strong with my yearly goals. Maybe I should make goals each month instead?

So...I have some good progress to show! Last Sunday I had less than a half a foot of the India sock done...and today it's finished!

So now I'm onto sock #2 of the Trekking. I cast on for sock 1 over a year ago, so rather than just a quick cast on I had to figure out how many stitches to start with, what kind of increases I used, and how frequently I increased. They're almost identical, but they look the same on my feet so I'm fine with it.

For now I'm sticking with socks and only socks for January, but it's early so don't be surprised when I stray.

As for the Koigu contest, there are a few strong contenders and I need to make a final decision. I'll announce a winner over the next few days.

Good for you. I always have lots of projects going at once but I find I need to hone in on one or two otherwise I don't see any progress. I hope you're feeling satisfied with what you got done this week. :)

I'm a personal fan of the monthly goals. It works for me since I don't know what kind of knitting mood I'll be in laster on in the year!

That is good news! May the sock knitting power keep on going strong and no more lonely socks! ;)

If I could finish anything in a month, then monthly goals would be a great idea . . . Good for you.
