Well, not actually. There are three finished pairs and I am seriously happy about the amount of Christmas socks that I knit. This KAL was hosted by Sara from Love Sock Wool Podcast and this was the first year that I participated. So without further ado, here are the three pairs of Christmas socks I completed in 2016.
I organized a sock KAL at my yarn shop for the months of November and December, we all used Cascade Heritage Prints in the Holiday colorway but each person used whatever pattern they wanted too. I had so much fun seeing what all my knitting ladies came up with!
The only special portion to this sock was adding in a contrast heel so my stripes would stay in order. I <3 them!
The second pair I finished were purchased at my local fiber festival and are definitely a sport weight sock. I'm pleased as punch with the colors that are in the Blue Moon Fiber club colorway. I would love to dye some self-striping sock yarn to match the colors in these ones.
The last pair that I finished were a test dye for LunaPurl Yarns and I will be wearing them all year long. Although Andrea changed the colorway a bit, I definitely think this is going to be a great seller for her!
I did join a brand new book club! The first book that we've read, I just recently finished was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I thoroughly enjoyed the book but I found it a bit slow to start in the beginning. Can't wait to start our next book! So I'm joining Ginny and Frontier Dreams in their "Alongs" for this week!
