They're Coming To Take Me Away Hee Hee ....

What do you do when your sock yarn stash is getting out of hand, and your knitting book library is overflowing with sock pattern books?

Why, you join the 52 Pair Plunge Knitalong, that's what!

I may have bit off more than I can chew (uh knit) this time lol. I certainly see a fair amount of knitalong crossover here. I wonder if I can convince the other 52 Pair Knitalongers that a sweater sleeve is a sock .... or maybe convince the Sweater a Month Knitalongers that a sock is the beginnings of a sleeve? My plan of attack is to start a pair of socks each Sunday and knit til my lil fingers can't take it any more. I sure hope I don't run out of dpns!!

Finished a bit too soon to count for the 52 Pair Plunge is the Inside Out socks. They sure do look a bit different on the feet don't they? Sorry for the not so good quality of the photos. I didn't think it would be so darn difficult to get a good photo of a sock, but I guess I rely on Paul for all my modeling shots.

A bit hard to tell in this side by side photo, but I am wearing one inside out and one rightside out. I like the looks of both.

A bit closer and you can see the difference in the cabling. This was my first foray into reversible cables. I'm going to have to find more of these.

  1. First the 12 sweaters, then 52 pairs of socks? That is honestly crazy. But somehow I do think you can do it. ; )

    (You've done some beautiful things, by the way. Wow.)

  2. Holy crap. I'm having a hard enough time with the sock a month KAL, there's no way I could do the 52 pair one. Wow. You always amaze me.

  3. I couldn't find your email to reply directly, but thanks for the comments on my blog. I've been reading yours, but I have to admit to being a lousy commenter.

    And I'm STILL digesting the weekly sock thing. omg... I wanted to knit socks for my kids' godparents and I couldn't achieve THAT in a year! :)
