I will remember 2011 as the Year of the Sock. I had a goal to knit 12 pairs of socks…which I didn’t meet…even with participating in TWO sock knitting competitions (Sock Sniper and Tour de Sock). I knit 11 pairs…and actually only finished the 11th pair on January 3rd of this year…but I’m still counting it as a 2011 sock! These are some of my favorites-
What do I do with all of these socks, you ask? Some (very, very few) are given away, but mostly they live in my hand-knit sock drawer. When I lived in Scotland I wore them nearly every day...but here in south Florida they are worn a bit less frequently.
