Done. Absolutely surprised that I actually finished.
The final pair are Wild Cherry Chain links -
Started 22 March, finished 27 March 08.
Cherry Hill supersock in colourway Wild Cherry (I can just hear you saying duh right about now).
I am leaving the "Charge of the Sock Brigade" contest open for a few more days. Come up with alternative stanzas to the ones I did or help finish the poem and win some sock yarn. Just drop your contribution in the comments section.
Looking back over this last year, I knit socks for just about everyone in the family and certainly replenished my own sock shelf. I found that the trusted and true patterns suited me better than many of the sock club challenges or complicated patterns.
I love warm feet and I want my socks to last a long time (I have several pair, worn regularly which are over 10 years old). But when I can't see all the patterns and hard work once they are on my feet, then I am happy with fancy colours or simple pattern stitches to keep me entertained during the knit.
52 pairs of adult socks. All but three pairs were completely started and finished within the year, the other three had less than 1/2 a sock started and had been in the UFO pile for over two years. Since I really needed the needles....
I hope that everyone had as much fun as I.
PS, not going to do this again for a few years. I have other things that I want to knit.
