Knitting by Judy @ 7:25 AM

I have 2-1/2 pairs of socks to knit. The 1/2 pair represents the Trekking socks for #1 Son. I’m up past the heels now (no new pics, sorry), so should be finished with these soon. They need to be finished by 10/14, when he leaves for 5 weeks of touring. I cannot see him go off into the cruel world without warm feet. They’re going all the way to Florida.

The other two pairs of socks are meant as Christmas presents. But, with the number of unfinished and dying-to-get-on-the-needles projects I have around here, I think it best that these socks be the next two projects I complete.

Socktoberfest 2006

So isn’t it handy that, starting October 1st, we have a whole month of Socktoberfest!

Of course I signed up! If you’re planning anything sockish for the near future, go on over to Lolly’s place and get your own button!

Here’s my plan for the whole world to see: #1 Socks will be finished before 10/1. That gives me 3 days to do the ankles. Piece of cake. Right? The other two pairs of socks will be finished by 10/31. One pair is for a man (i.e. bigger feet so will take longer). I think this pair can be finished by 10/15, which gives me the remaining 15 days to knit a pair of women’s socks. Yeah. I think that will work.

Maybe I’m nuts. (OK, peanut gallery — I hear you out there) But I think this is possible.

How about you? Think I’m crazy? Think socks are a good thing? Wanna join? Let’s join forces and encourage each other, eh?
