Sock it to Me - December 2007 The END

This months offerings are Picot edged socks in Sweet Georgia Black Orchid.

Titania's Revenge in Socks That Rock Lightweight Lagoon, very difficult to photograph. This is not a pattern for the feint hearted, it takes far too much concentration for my liking.

A close up of the mock cable that winds round from the heel flap to the toe!

So a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders, I have finished my sock challenge. 41 pairs in 12 months (almost 3.5 pairs a month), I do have enough sock yarn to knit 3 more years worth I think! First a rest, although for train travel I think I will have to resort back to socks although there won't be any deadlines to meet. Also I received 2 copies of this for Christmas and it would be rude not to try some of the designs out.

I have also joined the Socktopus Sock Club and the first parcel arrived just before we departed for the North. Its looking like money well spent.

Will be adding a huge list of patterns etc. when I can.

I need some of your sock knitting speed!!! Great socks as ever. I looked at the Titania's revenge pattern, but might just keeping on looking now rather than buying :)

Hope you had a great Christmas, and wishing you all the very best for 2008.

Wow.Sock Queen indeed.I love the Titanias Revenge but don't know if I'd be brave enough to try them yet only being on my 3rd pair of socks ever! Also love the black orchid colourway but not the pooling,the socks are great though.
Just finished a pair in Socrates and liked the yarn very much.
Your list is very useful,thank you.
