Pair # 2 is done! Finished the toes on them early this morning as I was sipping my coffee.
So this makes pair # 2 (of my challenge to myself to make 4) socks done for the Socktoberfest Opal Challenge. So later I’ll go delving into the box of Opal yarn to decide what I want to do net. Stripey pair? patterning pair similar to this? Use a pattern or plain jane sock? So many decisions to make.
In addition to being my 2nd pair for this challenge, it is added to my 12 in 2012 Challenge and there it is my 16th pair finished!! There are 1760 yards in a mile so I’ve now knit approximately 6,900 yards worth of yarn year to date (not just socks but also my Camp Loopy projects) which means I’m just 140 yards short of knitting 4 miles. It’s much easier and quicker to BUY 4 miles of yarn than it is to knit it. LOL
But 16 new pairs of socks so far this year — I’m real happy about that. Can a girl have too many pairs of socks? I don’t think so (especially as much as I hate doing laundry).
