It all began with this photo:
I reblogged it on Tumblr and Melissa aka ATreeHuggersWife on twitter re-tweeted it and came up with the goal of knitting 12 pairs of socks in 12 months. She re-posted the “challenge” and shortly there after Chris aka VTKnitboy joined in. Mind you… he’s a sock GENIUS!! Next, Karin aka iknit2purl2 on twitter joined in My friend Joni aka orbitalpopdog asked if she could join in too! She asked if you needed a blog to participate, the answer is … nope!
We’re keeping track of all the fun on twitter via the hastag #12socks so if you want to see what we’re all up to, just take a peek
Now, I cast on my first pair on July 1st. I want to learn how to knit them toe up and eventually 2 at a time. For now though, I started with what I know… top down
I’ve since that pic turned the heel and have a few more inches before I start the toe
I also HAD to take a macro shot of that lovely stitch marker I’m using. It came with my Sunkissed sock skein I ordered from JLYarnWorks it’s soooooo pretty!
I doubt 12 pairs of socks will fill my sock drawer, BUT I will have a bunch of yummy socks in the end
