I pretty much only knit socks this summer. I did not, however manage to meet all of my Summer of Socks goals. This is mostly because my image of how much knitting time I have and the reality of how much knitting time I have just do not match.
My total tally for SOS2007: 3 finished pairs, all of them started before SOS officially started (the Summer Monkeys missed by only a few hours, though), and added 3 new odd socks in the odd sock basket.
Let's review my SOS goals:
- Knit more sock yarn than I buy Umm, not so much. Enough said. I would post photographic evidence, but the jump drive with my photo archive is at home, and I'm here.
- Finish a pair of two of socks from 2007 sock club yarn Again, not so much. I've knit 1-3/4 Rockin Sock Club Solstice Slip. I will finish sock two soon, but not before midnight tonight. Here is what sock 2 looked like as we departed Washington, DC, for this year's tropical vacation. During 10 hours of flights yesterday, I turned the heel and knit about 1/3 of the leg. And read two novellas from a fun trashy romance collection.
- Knit mates to odd socks Again, not so much. I added three mateless socks to the collection, and only finished one pair that had started SOS2007 as a complete mateless sock. The travel disaster last month did contribute to the addition of two mateless socks to my collection.
