Sock knitting is one of my favorite things. Isn’t it funny how some people love knitting sweaters, some love knitting shawls, some love knitting socks.
I’ve never done Sock Madness but it’s kinda like Tour-de-Sock . . patterns are released and there’s competition to see who can get them knitted the fastest. With Tour-de-Sock, we get points based on how quickly you finish the socks. With Sock Madness, I think there’s elimination and the last one one each team wins. I’m not even sure if there are prizes.
Most importantly for me . . I am determined not to buy yarn. I will make it work with what I have. There may be some strange combinations but I can do it.
A “warm up” pattern has been released. It needs two colors and working from the stash, this is the yarn I’ve chosen.
Last night I got started and got as far as the ribbing.
This afternoon I have to go to the dentist. I’m hoping to get past the colorwork section and then I can take it with me to work on while waiting but I never have much of a wait at the dentist so . . maybe I’ll just take a book!
