grab some sock yarn

I just wanted to mention Kirsten's mystery sock knitalong. Maybe you did it last year, maybe you didn't. If you haven't heard of it, it really is a ton of fun. Kirsten will post new directions every Thursday. It is pretty great to have a weekly goal, accomplish that goal each week, and then have a pair of socks at the end of it. (If you work on both socks!) So, check your stash, shop your local yarn store or order some sock yarn on-line. She will be posting the first clue tomorrow!

Renee said...

Sounds like fun. :)

Seanna Lea said...

It sounds like fun, but I am going to start my first colorwork socks tonight (and umm, it would be generous to say that I have just a few socks already on the needles). I will live vicariously through all of the socks online!

Denise said...

I bought a skein of schaefer Nichole from a fellow raveler and am hoping it arrives tomorrow, I'm so excited:) If it doesn't come I'll just have to be a day behind!

Charity said...

I can't wait to see the first set of directions! :o)

Alison said...

I'm always tempted... I just know I won't have time this year, despite the fact that I do not have a new baby this time!
You yarn loks beautiful, can't wait to see the socks!

Yes sister, I am all set: STR in Muckity Muck (check!), Size 1.5 needles (check!)...all systems are GO!

Christina said...

how fun!

Trisha said...

Thanks for the heads up! I will go check it out. Sounds like lots of fun!

kim said...

Oh, I want to do this so much, but too many other projects call... God, I really, really, LOVE that table....

MadMad said...

Tempting, tempting... I wish you wouldn't keep doing this to me. I have cupcakes and a birthday cake and a book group (and vacuuming and appetizer making) to get through today, along with two meetings... Now I'm going to be obsessed about fitting this in, too.

Think I can?

Celestial said...

Super cute banner!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the heads up! I think I was just tempted me back into Socktoberfest (and there goes my one knit at a time rule...again...ha ha).

I love the new banner (and that isn't just my java addiction talking).

dodi said...

Trina said...

Wow this does sound like fun, but I have to many other knitting obligations.

julie green said...

hmm. would this be a good first sock project do you think?

stitching under oaks said...

I did the mystery sock last year...and I'm thinking on taking the plunge again this year. LOVE that new header!

Rhonda Moon said...

I love your title picture, what a great idea.

Kathy said...

I love the color you've chosen. It's been a busy week and I've only managed to print the pattern, but I'm hoping to cast on this Saturday during English soccer!

Linda said...

I am so disorganised for this years soctoberfest. I love your red coat in the previous post.

Jessica said...

Rene' Sharp said...

This is the first KAL that I am taking part in and am Loving IT!! I can't wait for Thurday for the next clue. What are your socks looking like so far? Love the new banner, and as always your blog!!

Kristyn Knits said...

sounds like fun!!
can't wait to see how yours progress.
loving your new banner (as always).

Kat said...

This might just have to be my first KAL! Thanks for sharing. Love your blog.

Suzanne said...

Ya know, Leslie, I thought, "No way! I have too much going on," but I mentioned the KAL to a friend. She got so excited that I decided I better join her. I'm really enjoying doing the socks in parts because the knitting is manageable and I can still work on the sweater I'm knitting now too. Thanks for sharing this idea.
