A year of socks

I just signed up for Blue Moon's Socks that Rock Club.

It's something I've wanted to do for a couple of years, and this year I finally did it. It meshes great with my goal of knitting more socks this year, particularly for myself. I'm also a little tired of my vanilla sock pattern and looking forward to trying out some different techniques.

I meant to get a pic today but forgot to... I actually finished a pair of mittens on the way to work, barely in time to wear them in this morning. It was bitter cold (< 20 degrees Fahrenheit), so I really needed them.

I've been off work since Dec 23. Want to know what my welcome back was? I fell on the parking garage, which is perpetually covered in ice. My knee is sore tonight. I dislocated it in high school, so I'm always afraid of doing it again in a fall.

Anyone else doing Blue Moon's club?

I've wanted to for a couple years, but there just wasn't the money. It's tough doing that much at once, especially right after Christmas. They'd get more members if they had a monthly payment plan. :-)
