Socks and Things

I give you my first completed pair for the new year.

Dragonfly Socks
Pattern - Dragonfly Socks
Yarn - Socks That Rock, Mediumweight in Pixie Park

This was a fun knit and the pattern was very easy to memorize.

I, of course, already have another pair in the works.

New Year Sock in progress
Pattern - New Year Socks from the Sockamania Knit Along
Yarn - Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock in Birchwood

I've got a couple of small sock knitting goals for this year. First I'm going to attempt to knit from my Ravelry queue. It's pretty long and getting longer all the time. I'm also trying to reduce my sock stash a little bit. I'm aiming for a 20% reduction in stash purchased pre-2008. (I'm definitely not forbidding the purchase of new yarns! That's just crazy!!)

I've been doing a little spinning. My spinning was practically non-exist in the weeks leading up to Christmas, but I'm slowly getting back to it.
