Change of Title

Last May, I challenged myself to finish a pair of socks every month for six months.* I was tired of being the Queen of Sock, and was determined to change that title. How did I do?

May socks (not included in the challenge, but inspired by it).

June socks.

July socks.

More July socks.

August socks.

September socks (completed in October).

October socks (completed in November).

November socks (not completed). I picked these for my November socks thinking they'd be a quick finish, but I had too many other things on my plate, and this pattern was too boring. This is actually the picture from last May; the second sock is about three rows longer than this.)

Even though I didn't technically complete the challenge, I don't think I did too shabby. These are PAIRS of socks, people.

And I only started three new socks to distract myself.

Interlacements Tiny Toes from the Wool Gathering. (This is as far as it ever got.)

Entrelac socks from Interweave Knits. (This is as far as it ever got.)

And eye-searing Monkey socks from Knitty. (The cuff of the first one is done. I've been working on it at lunchtime at work. I just haven't taken an updated picture.)

So what do you think? Can I officially become Queen of Socks instead of Queen of Sock? (There has been a significant drop in the number of Socks Without Partners meetings in the basket as of late, if that influences your decision.)

*I also challenged myself not to buy sock yarn for six months. Apparently my challenges are better met one at a time.

I love the sockS -- pairs and un-pairs; but more than anything else, I revel in the magnificent, multiple colors! Take joy, my heart!
Also, thanks for putting your priorities straight and outfitting Knit Knack appropriately before finishing feet stuff.

You are most definitely the Queen of Socks. I bow before your fashionably clad feet.

Hey...I have an idea. You should move in with Jessica Coke. She lives about 10 minutes from me and you can be my knitting master. I will organize a knitting circle. I will help you move. It's a nice house, it's big, and Jessica is never home and when she is she makes food that is good.

You can proudly wear that extra "s" now. I think for a challenge you did great! or at least better than I would ;)
