Ahem. I didn't quite live up to my self-imposed challenge of knitting a pair of socks for each month of the year. The first half of the year went well, with even an extra three pairs done! So, although I slowed down in the second half, I still had a pretty good output overall, methinks.
July socks - Nice ribbed socks
August socks - Plain vanilla socks
Both of these crossed the ocean for xmas gifts for my favourite sister and her bloke.
But by September I had realised that there were too many unfinished sock projects still on the needles, so I decided I'd have to spend the rest of the year finishing those I had already started. I also finished these...
Diamond gansey socks from May.
Mockery socks from June.
Which brings my grand total of hand knitted pairs of socks for the year to eleven - six pairs for me and five pairs for others. Not too shabby at all.
