More socks finished and a contest
Another pair of socks for the hospice and my first pair for November. Thanks to Cecilia for the 2 yarns I used together. I love the heathered background and the colour changes in these.
Now a contest for you. The hospice lunar year of socks ends next month and all the socks will be going off to the hospice. My question is, how many pair of socks will I be taking them? Certainly far more than the original 13 pairs I'd hoped to make when I started back in January, 1 for each lunar month. It may or may not be the total you have seen on my blog, there may be others I haven't shown, there again there may not be:)
Prize for the first correct answer, if there is more than 1 I'll draw for it.
Prize is a Yule femme and a skein of yarn.
Several (lots) of people have asked what next years challenge will be. Last year was a year of shawls, this year socks. Well I've had several ideas for next years hospice knitting/crafting:-
1/ a different sock pattern a month
2/ a set of femmes, 1 for each month. Not strictly knitting but they do use yarn.
3/? insert your idea here.
I don't want to knit big things like clothes, that takes away the portability aspect. I also don't want to do very complicated stuff such as fair isle, again takes away the fun.
so what would you suggest I make for my hospice appeal next year? If I use your idea there will be a prize of a femme in your elemental sign
