I have completed my first month of the ravelry sockdown with flying colors. This pair of socks was completed in 11 days, with ends woven in and everything! You can't tell from the picture, but these socks are pretty darn close to being twins, as the splotchyness occurring after the heel is happening on both socks. All in all, I like the socks, though the yarn is a bit thick for my tastes. I'm glad to be done.
Next month's challenge is underappreciated patterns, holiday stockings or socks designed by Hunter Hammersen. I'm anxious to see what patterns fall into the underappreciated pattern category, but I'm really leaning toward knitting up a holiday stocking. Last year, before our wedding, I bought yarn to make the New Ancestral Christmas Stocking from the second Mason-Dixon book. I really feel like that will be a fun thing to knit - more so than just a pair of socks. However, my yarn stash, which just keeps getting bigger, really is begging to be knit down. There is no law that says I can't do both, but what about Christmas presents? Seriously, shouldn't there be more time to knit in the day?
