goodbye, Socktober

This was the first Socktoberfest that I actually did a really good job of knitting socks. My usual time frame to knit a pair is about 6 months. So even though I didn’t finish my Mystery Socks during the designated month of celebration, I still consider this a Successful Socktober! I’m nearly finished with the pair!


The pattern was my very first experience with a Mystery Knitalong! Kirsten has been doing a mystery sock during October, ahem, excuse me, during SOCKtober, for a few years now. This pattern, TTL Mystery Sock 2010, was fun and easy; a perfect match for the yummy skein of Skinny Bugga that I got at SAFF in 2009. The color is Tomato Frog, and very hard to capture with my amateur photog skillz.



If I can keep myself from casting on for all the ideas and plans floating around in my head (That’ll be hard because I already cast on for new slippers for Gerald), then I might finish these very soon!  Can’t wait to see how the yarn and pattern look after blocking!

In giveaway news…

I printed out all the entries (over 100!) from the Stitch ‘n Bitch Superstar Knitting giveaway post, cut them up into individual bits of paper and had Maggie draw three out of the proverbial hat. The winners are:

All three have been contacted, and will receive their books soon! Thanks to everyone who entered. I wish I could send a book to each of you!

I feel like we’ve been on giveaway overdrive, but get this. I have another giveaway coming soon!
