Hi Knitting Friends >> I changed my Ravelry name to SockHussy2. I am old name was Fierybug08. My new name is a better name and I might as well embrace my sock hussy ways. And since the Farmer’s Almanac predicts that Maryland will be experiencing a harsh Winter– might as well lean into my talents. I have recently found another great sock challenge. I found this challenge in Ravelry called The Canadian Crazy Train, a sock challenge that appeals to me because you don’t have to be a veteran sock knitter. This will be a fun activity to do and one less goal to make.
The following aspects of this challenge include:
- Sock train routes are country specific
- Only one sock is knitted during competition
- Canadian sponsors
- Registration Oct 14-Dec 21, 2015
- Crazy Train departs Jan 1, 2016 for 8 weeks
- Meeting new knitters
I am back on a yarn diet. I think I will start a money jar for purchasing holiday yarn. Since I joined Instagram, it has become harder to ignore all that beautiful yarn. I have a growing list of sock yarns that I want to try. Knit friends, what factors do you consider before making colorwork or textured socks?
- Biscotte & Cie
- Tanis Fiber Arts
- Lorna’s Laces Soul
- Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk
- Colinette Jitterbug
- Patons North America (Kroy Socks 4 Ply/Sock Stripes)
I am still trying to figure out my next sock project. I am trying to find a textured or color- worked sock to capture my interest. Below are a couple of potential projects:
