My LYS issued a sock challenge for 2009: Complete one pair of socks per month for the entire year. Of course I put my knitting game face on and got to work! I have successfully completed January (yes, I know they do not look finished in the picture, but really they are) and February, and even started my March socks. Fueled on by these successes, I am sure that Cookie A’s new sock book (due out in April – my husband preordered it for my birthday!) will help me remain motivated. My knitting goal for 2009 is to use yarn from my stash as much as possible in order to both save money and use what I already have. It is hard for me to resist impulse buying when it comes to yarn, especially sock and lace yarns (which is what comprises my stash). So I am on a yarn diet!
I know that two months of the year are over, but I welcome other knitters who want to join me in downsizing their stash this year!
