One of my favourite KAL groups on Ravelry is the Solid Socks Group - its a lovely group of lovely people with minimal KAL rules, and a new knit a long every month, of socks. Whats not to love!
One of the many reasons I love this group is that it ocassionally forces me to order a sock yarn that I possibly would not choose without the push. Decembers colour was Orange. I ordered yarn especially and cast on a second pair of my newest sock pattern - Ribbon Curls.
There was absolutely no reason I couldn't get these socks finished in Decemeber, except that it was December, and well you know how that goes! Howeveer I did finish them on January 3 - its just taken me nearly another whole week to take a photo or 2.
these socks, I love the colour, I love the fit. I cant wait to get out my sock stash come Autumn, its GROWING! (you may remember my sock stash from last winter, its bigger now)
The Solid Sock Group also runs a bi-monthly Mystery Sock Knit A Long, which I am the designer for this February-March. Anyone is welcome to join in. To be eligible for a prize, you knit the sock in any solid/semi solid colour and share a photo, but you are always welcome in the Solid Sock group which means you can still KAL in a non-solid colour! I will be sharing more information about this Mystery KAL soon! I hope you will join me. (The pattern will be free during the KAL)
