Monthly Sock Challenge

As I mentioned last week, I’ve decided to challenge myself to knit a pair of socks every month for a year. When I started knitting, I had the thought and hope that I’d make a lot of socks (something you can’t really make as a seamstress.) But oddly enough, after almost three years, I don’t feel like I have knit that many. I have an armful of yarn ready to be knit into socks (some with patterns in mind already, others just waiting for that perfect pairing) but always seem to cast on for different projects instead.

Overall, I’m doing this for myself and will knit alone if I have to. But if you’d like to join me, I’d love the company and camaraderie. You’re welcome to make your own minor rules. For instance, I’m aiming for a whole year/12 pairs of socks but if you just want to commit to a few months, maybe even just here and there, that’s fine. But try to stick with the main rule of completing a pair of socks within a month. (I’m actually directing this mostly at myself, notorious for starting projects but not finishing them.) If you’re interested, I’ve set up a page here on my blog for you to share your progress and completed socks here.

For this first month, I’ve cast on for another pair of Warm and Cozy Socks which will be gifted to a relative. The worsted weight held double (and the fact that I’ve already made three pair in the past) will hopefully make reaching my deadline a little easier.
