Bungalow 312 Sock Club

As you know from my previous post, I follow the Yarn Harlot on a regular basis. This year she had the brilliant idea to start her own self-imposed sock club. Having fallen victim to the "I really, really NEED that skein of sock yarn" bug myself, I can safely say that a good chunk of my stash is sock yarn. Recent inventory and reorganization of the stash cupboard confirm this.

So, without further ado, I announce the Bungalow 312 Sock Club. Each month, I shall attempt to knit a pair of socks that is currently in my Ravelry queue. Rather than random choice, I shall be choosing based on a Ravelry KAL, most likely the Sock Knitters Anonymous Sockdown! challenges or the Solid Socks KAL. Some months, particularly those when the KALs don't match anything in my queue, I will use to finish WIPs. A quick peek at my project page will reveal that I have several single socks knit. I'm not telling how many.

Now I announce the July sock...

This is Tesserae by Anne Hanson. Anne Hanson is this month's designer for the Sock Knitters Anonymous Sockdown! challenge. I'm using ThreadBear Fiber Arts Rob's Hand-Dyed Sock in Faded Jeans. At first I thought that the pattern stitch was being lost because of too much variegation in the yarn, but I sort of like the wavy effect the pattern and yarn are making, so I'm forging ahead.

Guess who these are for? Guess who has a birthday coming up in September?

I love this challenge! Good luck...I look forward to checking in and looking at all the lovies you will be creating!
That yarn is beautiful and really works well with that pattern-great pairing.

You have inspired me, as usual. My family loves socks more than anything else I can knit.

I have missed seeing you. Do you still go to Threadbear on Fridays?
