Late... but finished

I finished these yesterday, so I was a day late in getting to 52, but I did get there. These last two pair, 51 and 52 are knit for CIC. Knit in left over wool.

I have enjoyed this knit along and have loved seeing and being inspired by all the great socks.

Happy Knitting

01 April 2008


Well, I don't think that I've posted in months, and I'm sad to say that I lost momentum very early on in the KAL, but it was a nice time in my first KAL. I get bored doing the same project over and over, and I love to move on in my challenges. Perhaps this is why I dropped out. On the other hand, I joined my first KAL, I learned how to knit socks from the toe-up, I'm less tentative about joining the online community, and I know my limits of how much I can knit. For instance, I cannot knit 52 pairs of socks in a year...mostly because no one really wanted any and I don't need that many socks :)

Congrats to all who stuck it out, and good luck to any of you who are moving on to do the 52PP 08-09.


So, I didn't make it to 52 pairs of socks in a year, but I am very well proud of finishing 34.These are some of my favourites. sockapalooza4waving lace

I finished 33 out of 52 pairs.

I haven't downloaded the camera yet but pair 33 looks a lot like pair 32. I still have 2 pair on needles.


Here are pairs 32 (again) and 33.

Pair 32 looks different from the original photo because I found that one sock was longer than the other. since I already had pair 33 on the needles, I adjusted and got two pairs in the right sizes.

I had fun doing this. I learned a couple of new techniques like knitting a sock on two circular needles and later, knitting two socks on two circular needles. I might have been able to get more socks knitted, but I can't ride a bike and knit at the same time. Plus I knit two sweaters for the baby and a couple of hats, and worked on afghan blocks for charity, and taught a couple of friends to crochet and another to knit.

Good luck to everyone and maybe we'll meet again. I'm not sure if I'll sign up in June, but who knows.
