In addition to the ‘official’ stash exchange challenge, I’ve also challenged myself to knit up some lonely sock yarn that has appeared at our stash exchange for about 3 years in a row! I decided to knit it up right away so there will be no chance of it returning.
I would it up the day after the exchange, and casted on two days later. I decided on the sock pattern “Monkey” by Cookie A., as I’d knitted it before and found it a fun and quick knit. It also looks cute in variegated yarn, which is what I scored at the stash exchange.
I casted on at knit night last night, and at the end of the evening it looked like this:
After spending most of today in bed watching Harry Potter and knitting on and off (I think my on/off cold has turned into a sinus infection), I have this:
The pattern is fun to knit– it’s interesting enough not to bore me, but it’s not so difficult that I have to look at the pattern too much to make fast progress.
PS- the yarn is Lorna’s Laces Sock (striped or multi? I don’t know) in the colorway Daffodil.
