12 months / 12 pairs of socks

1 12 2008

Since I started knitting socks I had this goal to try to finish a pair of socks per month. 2008 was no different and on the last day of November I finished my twelvth pair of socks.

Last night I wove in the ends to the second Twisted Tweed sock and now have a completed pair.

Twisted Tweed socks - Done

Isn’t it funny how both socks spiraled identically but that the width of the blue stripe is wider in the sock on the right?

I knit the pattern like my usual, toe-up with a short-row heel and I used Yarn Lust BFL sock in Tiffany. The socks are a bit big so I’m going to see if they fit my mom, who is the lucky recipient to all my too big socks, I do hope they fit her! Ravelry details here.

What an accomplishment, and with your sewing and quilting projects too! You craft very quickly!

P.S. I love your anthropologie scarf in the previous post.

Congrats! I wanted to do 12 pair in 2008 too but I’m just not a sock knitter. Or focussed.
