Hi! I am new to knit-alongs, but I thought that it would be cool to try and knit a pair of socks a month. If you are feeling more confident and have a ton of time on your hands, 2 pairs a month. I just wanted to let out the idea. :aww: We can post pix and everything......:muah:

This is actually one of my goals for this year so I will join you. My first pair for January were the Monkey Socks.

this is a really great idea gym, i may join you but you will have to forgive me if i can't quite manage a pair every month, things tend to get a little hectic from around now until june when the exams are over. Then i get a few months to relax a bit until I start my final year of Univerisity in October - scary! I will do what i can though, some months may have to be baby/toddler socks. Gives me a good excuse to actually go and buy one of the sock books people suggested to me!!!

This is a great way to work up a gift stash.
Lets see - 7 neices and nephews, 1 child, 1 husband, 2 parent sets, 4 sibling/spouse sets. I count 21 people not including a pair or two for me. 2 pair a month?
I can do it - really. :roflhard:

i am still doing simple socks, so here i have some basic longer-cuffed/ribbed top socks. the ends are not weaved in yet, but they will be before march. i am not intelligent enough to follow a really cool pattern ( :pout: ) but i will be into that in no time. please forgive me because i am working on a sweater at the same time. i want to try knee highs for may, my b day month..... :cheering:

I have updated my blog (linked in sig.) to include a pic of my first ever (almost finished) pair of socks, just in case you want to look. Am hoping to finish them tonight.
