sOctober, sOctober how I love you
sOctober is the funnest month of the year for me. I feel like I haven't knit socks for ages (actually it's just since the beginning of August). This sOctober I'm making a plan that will last the whole year. I've been eyeing Rachel Coopey's socks for quite some time, and, while pocking through her patterns I discovered that she had done a Discworld themed sock club a couple of years back. That's right, twelve pairs of socks based around Discworld themes and characters! If you've been reading my Yarnalong posts you will know that I am gradually listening to the books, and you know how much I love a theme. So - 12 pairs of socks in twelve months, knit a long with the audiobooks. (Although not rigidly so, it's hard to coordinate finishing a project and a book at the same time, and I'm a monogamous knitter and reader.) I'm so excited. As soon as I have my current projects finished - which should be by the end of the weekend, I'm casting on the first sock. Ahh, sOctober how I love you.
