Socktober delusion

So I'm on the train on Thursday talking to me new knitting buddy (salut Marie-Michele!) about the beautiful broadripples she's making and thinking I should find some yarn and join Soctoberfest.

She looked at me like I was crazy and said: "It's October 26!"



Okay, that was a crazy thought I had. Though in my typical delusion I actually found some stash sock yarn (which admitedly wasn't very hard...I've got enough sock yarn to make a dozen pairs!) and cast on.

Well knit as I might, I don't think I can humanly knit a sock tomorrow night but you know, it's not "Sockstober"... it's very clearly a singular affair and the loophole is built right into the name ;0)

And I think I can finish a sock for socktober...

PS - did you notice how my purple needles match my sockyarn? I can't tell you how much pleasure I derive from this. Must. Get. More. Colours.

  2. Perhaps you should have been a lawyer....LOL. The 'sock' looks good and you do have until midnight (and unlike some of us you will have finished one....). Love the needles!

  3. LOL - great interpretation. I rolled my eyes when I read about Socktoberfest because there was no way I was going to even try to start or finish a sock in a month with a 2-month old. I started a sock last week. A little late but seeing all these people knitting socks made me jealous.

  5. Nice sock!

    Congrats on the new "blue". Is Julian excited to be a big brother? Got names yet? C'mon we need details!

    Good to see you back.

  7. LOL! I love those purple needles...I'm going to have to see if I can find me some...purple is my favourite colour!! The sock is coming along nicely though, and I do love those colours. Which colourway is it?

  11. A loophole! Good catch! And really, if you consider the timezones of the world, you probably finished your SOCK-tober by the end of the month -- Somewhere!

  14. I love your sock yarn...what a great pattern it makes and the colors are awesome and of course great needles. Those needles alone would make you want to knit a sock.
