Over on LollyKnitting Around, Lauren has posted about the 2008 Soctoberfest, which started Wednesday, October 1. It is linked to the Ravelry Site, which I'm not a member of. Still, the idea of a month dedicated to knitting socks just seemed like a fun, motivating project to participate in, AND, it just happens I do have a sock "On the Needles" right now!
My friend Gail is going to laugh at me: I've already frogged my sock out once. I didn't care for the knitting pattern with the self striping yarn pattern. I recast on Wednesday night - in honor of the start of Soctoberfest - while watching re-runs of Scrubs (season 4) and have about 2/3" of the cuff completed. I don't know what pattern I'm going to do yet. I'll worry about that later tonight.
If you are a member of Ravelry, they are also doing a mystery sock. The cuff pattern was posted yesterday and subsequent parts will be posted regularly.
Book: Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: "Boston" by Wisdom Yarns (Wool-polymide blend)

Let the knitting begin!
