First, Socktopia is featuring a Mystery Sock this month with installments released every Monday. This week we were instructed to knit a 1.5 inch twisted rib cuff. What’s up for next week? You will just have to find out NEXT week, or you can come join me for the fun!
Yarn- Lisa Sousa’s WILD THING
2.5 mm needles
Socktopia’s August sock themes that I am trying to decide between are ‘Chameleon Kharma’, ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’ and ‘Ebony and Ivory’.
The Sock Anonymous group on Ravelry has issued more challenges. Over there the goal is to try new things each month for a year. August is ‘Lace Sock’ month………………….hmmmmm……..I’ve knit a bunch of those already!
The Knitting Vintage Socks Nancy Bush group are knitting the Gentlemans Shooting Stocking as their August/September sock. I do have yarn purchased for that sock and planned to knit for DH. Maybe I will cast on for that! The Knitting on the Road Nancy Bush Group has voted on Huron Mountain as their August/September sock. I have long wanted to knit that sock. Hmmmmm…….black and white yarn would work for the Socktopia Ebony and Ivory Challenge.
See what I mean? Too many challenges. Too many socks. Which ones do I want to knit? EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!
