Knitting socks with Penny
Even though we're states apart, Penny and I are going to do a sock knit-along together again. Penny suggested we do a modified version of the Sock KAL that the Yarn Harlot came up with. In Penny's version we only knit 6 pairs of socks in a year. That's one sock per month. And the way to play is to select 6 skeins of sock yarn from one's stash (see above picture of my chosen sock yarns) and six sock patterns to pair with the yarn. Place skeins of yarn in a pillow case and grab - without looking - a skein to knit every other month.
I selected yarn and patterns, then had Joan pull from the bag. She pulled out the ivory Trekking sock yarn and I'm making the Gansey Socks from KnitPicks.
