The January Socks


The January Socks are finished, and with 6 days still left in the month.  I think that's pretty good considering there were moments when I thought I wouldn't complete them in time, and I worried about how it would look so bad to the blog that I couldn't keep my goal in the first month no less.  After a very unproductive weekend, due to not feeling well and those pesky achy wrists I mentioned in the last post, I made myself buckle down and knit on these socks, and only these socks until I got them finished.  It was definitely worth it and I'm pleased as punch with how they turned out.  The pattern was easy to work, although I did have to use the chart and didn't memorize the 16 row repeat as I know others have, but nevertheless, they were an easy knit.  Here are a few details:

Pattern: Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt from the book Favorite Socks. (You can also download it as an individual pattern on Ravelry.)
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy in the colour GoGo Grassy.
Needles: 2.75 mm
Started: January 1, 2012
Finished: January 25, 2012
Mods: None, I followed the pattern to the T.

Now that these are done I should get back to the Snowbunnies seeing as they haven't gotten any farther since the last post.  

Be back soon,

P.S. I have fallen down the rabbit hole and I'm now on Pinterest.  There's a link to me on my sidebar if you'd like to see my boards or follow me.  I'm just getting started but boy is it fun and inspiring.  I hope to see you there!
