I know I said I have a lot of important stuff lined up for the next few months. And that I would work on my WIPs only. So, I am working on that crdigan for dh, but surely I could knit a pair of socks in two months. Whew, the temptation was great and I gave in just this once (I hope). So I have started this sock for the sockdown at sock knitters anonymous forum at ravelry. I have to finish the pair and post it on the forum by Jan 31, to be in the running for some fabulous yarn.
I have used some old yarn from my stash and touched it up a little with dyes. I am using the generic sock pattern from Kate Gilbert as a general guide with some lace diamonds of my own. It is turning out quite nice.
