What's a jar of shame? This is a jar of shame:
It contains all my single socks, mittens and gloves.
I am about to start a new project - 12 pairs of socks in 12 months. Simply - I have to make two socks every month, starting in June. Note the careful wordinig there.... It means I can *finish* some of those pairs where I already have one.
Here are the rules:
- Knit 12 pairs of socks in 12 months, or 24 odd socks if you have lots of WIP socks you want to make into pairs.
- This challenge starts on June 1st.
- You could have seven pairs by Christmas. Some of the socks to be knit in the yarnyard yarn
Continuing the shame - here are some of the singles:
From left to right:
Purple sock in Yarn Yard Clan - think it's a toe-up
Schoppel wolle yarn - toe up with an odd cast off.
Brown banboo yarn - plain vanilla sock
Colinette jitterbug - vanilla sock - too small - now frogged.
All of these may end up being frogged as I have no notes on needle sizes or patterns (a lesson in here....)
I also have single gloves. This first one is for Ruaridh - rainbow gloves in schoppel wolle reggae - now where did I put the pattern?
Then we have *two* left-hand Fetchings - not much use really...
I have a single Noro fingerless mitten:
Here is my garter stitch mittens in Rowan Tweed - almost there...
And finally - Orla's Tomten jacket that I never finished. It is now being frogged and will go towards a lizard ridge. It's proving hard to frog though - very sticky yarn that Kureyon :)
So - lots of frogging to do and some already done. I am now left with lots of ideas and plans for the 12 pairs in 12 months. Here is my basket of sock yarn:
My clan yarn is kept in my secret draw:
If you are on Ravelry you can see my planned socks in my special queue. The queue (like all things in my life) is a work in progress ;-)
Oh and some good news - I actually finished a pair of socks - for Orla:
