Ich Bin Stricken Socken!

It's October 1st!  You know what that means!!!  It's time for Socktoberfest!  Whereas Oktoberfest is an excuse to eat fat-laden sausages & pastries and drink beer, Socktoberfest is an excuse to knit some socks in the month of October!  There are no rules.  There are no deadlines.  There are no expectations.  So pop on over to the Ravelry group and join up!  Celebrate sock knitting all month long and check out some of the fun socks everyone is knitting!!

I'm knitting Wendy D. Johnson's Toe-Up Socks with a Difference, which is a vanilla sock pattern.  My socks are being knit in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino "Very Scary" colorway on US Size 2, 40" circs (magic loop).  This yarn feels great to knit with and despite my crummy photography, has a subtle sheen.  Since the yarn is so dark and so variegated, a vanilla sock pattern is a perfect pairing!

I can't wait to see what y'all are knitting up!



  1. I'm in! I have yet to knit a toe up so maybe Socktoberfest would be a good time to give it a try!

  2. I want to join up with Socktoberfest, but I'm trying to knit about 5 Christmas gifts this year, and I'm such a slow knitter that I don't trust myself to do one more thing. That, and I'm about to start research papers with my juniors. *ick*
