A Glutton for Punishment

21 Sep

So I just signed up for this knitalong. That sound you hear but can’t quite place? That’s Becky laughing her arse off, because I have been complaining to her about the desperately boring socks I am knitting, and how I am totally over the whole sock thing for a good long while.

Anyhoo, you should totally head over there and sign up, even if you’ve never knit a sock before in your life (there is a prize for best first socks), or are currently stuck on your first sock (cough-Mandie-cough), or live in the Northern Hemisphere (it’s an equal opportunity knitalong). I believe there’s going to be a Ravelry group, too.

And if you’re at all technically inclined, there is a competition on for banners and buttons for the knitalong blog.

Come on, you know you want to.

    When I become a little more skilled at socks, I’ll do some sock kals for sure! I think my first one will be Sockapalooza next year.

    It’s not punishment! It’s fun! I’m doing nearly all socks for christmas anyway, so it’s just helping me, not hindering me. 🙂

    Hmm…Those in the northern hemisphere could rename it “winter of socks.” I think I might need to do this, or I might need a swift kick in the head. Either or.
