I'm only one pattern repeat away from casting off my current pair of socks (photos coming very shortly). That's a very quick (for me) one month.
not sure whether it's too late to join in now, but I've only just seen the A-Z sock challenge on Ravelry via a blog post from laalbear. The idea is that you knit a pair of socks every two weeks this year - yes that's 26 pairs. Each pattern has to begin with the next letter of the alphabet.
At the rate I knit, I'd be lucky to get to my favourite pattern, 'Ginkgo Socks' before Christmas, so I think the prizes (UK only) will be very well deserved. I notice that the discussion thread for the competition has the tag 'omgyoumustbemad'.
