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.

Sounds like fun. One sock a month should be doable, unless you are like me, of course. I have a pair of socks that have been on my needles since the fall. One day I'll have time to finish them.
