I just finished a pair of socks. I mean, that happens a lot around Capital Knitter town, I did knit something like 14 pairs last year. These ones were the last of my festive knitting, a pair I made from a friend’s stash.
As I have been working away at these, the momentum towards this year’s Sock Madness has been building. Chatter on the forums is beginning, sign-ups are on the go and the materials list should be out really soon. When I finished the event last year, I wasn’t sure if it was something I would do again. I was exhausted. But now, I find myself looking forward to it…I’m idly updating my stash on Ravelry, making tables of my available yarn/beads and now that these socks are done…I’m back to stalking the forums, waiting for the official warm up pattern to release to see if that’s the next pattern I want to knit. I’m setting my expectations low, I have less knitting time than I did last year during Madness, but I have more skills too…so it’s a toss up. I’ve definitely got the Madness bug again though and who knows where its gonna take me!
