I got the socks for the husband done and blocked, and he likes them. They are a variation of the Thuja socks from knitty.com. I knit them out of Rabbitworks Fibre Studio Toe Jam (70% Merino 30% Silk) in The Gathering Storm colorway. I originally started these back in August and they were my commute knitting, but I found myself not really wanting to knit on BART, so they languished. Then, the socks I knit the husband last January developed a giant hole in the ball of one of the feet seemingly out of nowhere (Was a little sad about that because it was an 8-ply sock yarn that was supposed to be rather sturdy). Thus, the first month of my personal stash yarn club is complete.
Last week I sat down and plotted what I wanted to knit, sock-wise, for the rest of the year. I’ve mixed some WIP socks into it so that I can get them off the needles, but it’s mostly all unballed yarn I’ve been wanting to knit with. February’s personal stash yarn club sock is just a plain knit sock out of Yarn Pirate Superwash BFL in the Calamity colorway. I’m already passed the heel on the first sock and it’s not technically February yet. I figure if I get these done quickly, I’ll pick up a larger project that’s been on hold and try to get some work done on it.
