I can’t believe so much time has gone by since I’ve blogged. It’s with good reason, though. So much has been going on but I have managed to keep knitting socks through it all. I created a website called Sockamaniac like my blog, where I have filled it with lots and lots of sock information. It was very time-consuming gathering up all the resources for sock patterns, tutorials, dyeing yarn and so forth but now that I sit back and look at it I have to feel that it was well worth it and a job well was done.
I started three sock knitting groups on Yahoo too! One is called Second Sock Syndrome which pretty much speaks for itself. A lot of sock knitters use DPN’s and knit one sock at a time. We may get one sock finished but then are distracted by something else. Like that new yarn we just bought and have to try it out just to see how it looks, then we’ll go back and finish that second sock. Ya right. This list was created to help motivate us and get ideas on finishing that second sock.
Then there’s my Sockamaniac Sock-a-long. Here we knit the same sock pattern as a group project. The difference with this sock-a-long is that all our project patterns are designed by the members. And finally mySockamaniac Socknitters group. It’s a general sock knitting group with some off topic chat. We have a lot of fun besides sharing our sock knitting experiences and funnies. (more…)
