It was tough getting down to the final 12 sock patterns, but I've done it. The first sock will be - well, it will be the one in the picture above!
But here's the thing, the sock is designed by herself. I saw the sock. It was basic, straightforward, a good plain sock. Perfect to learn on. And even though the one pictured is fancy fancy with it's multi-colored stripes, that won't be the yarn I'm using. I have a really pretty German sock yarn that I got at a yarn swap - beachy blues and browns - that I will be using. The plain pattern is going to absolutely show off the colors of the German sock yarn.
So after I envisioned this good plain sock in my fancy German sock yarn and put it at the #1 slot in my sock club, then I clicked on it only to discover that the pattern was by herself.
Well, that's good - because I know the pattern will be flawless and knit up as advertised. But! (And I had to look it up...) She says that it only takes 16 hours to knit.
So the challenge is on!
