A Pair of Socks A Month KAL
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. We can post pix and everything......

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.
