October socks you ask? Yes, it is about time. These became a hated project somewhere in the middle of November when I was still working on them. The pattern was just too much for my usual, on the go knitting style. It really is a beautiful pair of socks though. And there weren’t any problems with the way the pattern was designed, it just needed constant attention. The yarn (Fleece Artist Trail Socks) became really soft after washing and I love the variegation in the colors. I just really let this pair slow me down. Thankfully I am already halfway into my November pair of socks, so I feel like I can still accomplish the goal of 12 pairs in 2011! Check out my project page for more details.
