Hermione's Sockalong

Kollabora is hosting a sockalong for Hermione's Everyday Socks and since I'm one of the only people in the world to not have knit a pair of these, I thought I would join up.

I also happen to have a bargain basement skein of sock yarn that will let me feel like I'm de-stashing in a more major way than I actually am.  You see, I have made a vow (the kind that interests no one but me) to not buy more yarn until I have knit five more substantial projects.  Socks are substantial, right?

I also want more experience knitting them as I think they're the only knitted gift that will ever, maybe, see the light of day in southeast Texas.  That's a big maybe.  Anyway, they've cost me a whopping $1.48, so what have I got to lose?

  1. I'm doing this knit along too! (although I haven't actually....started, yet. But I'm not worried. It's first on my to do list this weekend!) And I'm using stashed yarn too. (double kudos to us!)

  2. Hi, Lily! I'm glad we'll be doing this together. I haven't started either. I move my daughter into her dorm today. Then I'll come home and console myself with these socks.
