A while ago, like in February, I joined the Sock A Month knitalong. The idea was to knit a pair a month until July. One of the leaders, Chrissy, knits like a hundred socks a month. Why couldn't I do one pair? I thought I would finish a pair of socks for the book in March, and then maybe another pair or even two before summer's end. One for me, one for Martin. On the SAM3 sidebar I'd have a couple little letters next to my name, for the months in which I finished sock pairs. M, definitely. J and J?
Since then I've made zero socks for my book (I used a pair I'd made in January for the beauty shot), two 3/4 socks done toe-up in a self-patterning yarn, two tiny toes in Adrian's gorgeous oystercatcher colorway, 9/10 of an Anastasia sock in the green and brown yarn from Mary, one half a Friday Harbor sock that I had to rip due to size, and 9/10 of a new sock with that same Blueberry Pie Zen String yarn.
So, I think I'll have no letters next to my name. No finisher's medals. But I've done a lot of sock knitting. I really learned how to do the short row toe/heel. So that's nice.
