November is gone and it’s time to update on the knitting resolutions.
3. Knit one pair of socks per month
|Plain Old Socks
Pattern: None – plain Stockinette socks
Needles: US 1 (2.25mm)
Yarn: My Handspun from dkKnits Superfluff roving in, “Shooting Star”
–Ravelry Project Link–
I had so much fun spinning up the yarn and then knitting the socks. The yarn is a basic fingering weight yarn that was spun on my SpinOlution Mach I and then navajo plied. I broke the yarn at the heel and started from the other end of the ball so that the color progressions on the leg and instep would be continuous. Yeah, it’s a few more ends to weave in, but. Look at that! Becky always does such a fabulous job with colors.
4. Spin four ounces of roving per month.
See above – the yarn was finished spinning about mid month. Then it jumped in front of everything and decided to become socks.
2. Knit two sweaters this year.
Still working on this. I really hope to be done with the second by the end of the month, but I’m just not sure that will happen.
I’m really looking forward to January so that I can post a big follow-up to this year’s resolutions and set another batch for next year. There are going to be some good ones, I can just feel it. Also looking forward to lining up all 12 photos of socks from this year and patting myself on the back a whole bunch of times. Speaking of which, I should probably start the pair for this month, huh?
