Yes that’s 20 in 2012 — way beyond my original challenge of 12 in 2012 — pairs of socks that is. I just added to the challenge page my 20th pair of socks.
I can’t believe I finished that many. I actually have made more but some of them are still single socks at the moment. Can I get one more pair done before the end of the month? Maybe. The challenge is winding it’s way to a close — did you meet your goals? or some of your goals? (we won’t discuss that “no yarn buying” portion of this challenge – that fell upon the wayside long ago). I’m already busy figuring out the details of my challenge for next year! So far I’ve knit over 5 miles of yarn this year (again, we won’t mention how many miles I may have purchased — suffice it to say, more than 5 miles). Speaking of that topic we aren’t discussing (buying yarn) here’s what somehow miraculously arrived at my office this week from The Loopy Ewe. I think Santa must have sent it to me because I’m such a good girl, right? Are you nodding in agreement?? You’d better be. LOL This yarn is for the mystery shawl KAL on Ravelry that Judy – yes that Judy – is also planning on doing (no I did not twist her arm – she’s too far away for me to do that – no matter what she tells you). I still need one more color to go with these two but I plan to go stash diving for that one. It doesn’t start until December 27 if I remember right.In the meantime, we’re on blizzard alert here. Predicted – at least a foot of snow between tonight and tomorrow night in my area – more a bit north of here. And then of course blizzard winds setting in to add to the fun. I don’t think there’s hardly a school in the area that hasn’t already cancelled their classes tomorrow, including finals at the University cancelled. I did get a call after I got home that we’re opening the office at 9:30 rather than the usual 8 a.m. My determining factor will be if the city buses are running AND can get up the hill I live on. Tho I think it would be quite funny if somehow this storm missed us with everything that people were cancelling so early.
