Sock It To Me Monday: Haunted and Iceland

First thing first – my Haunted socks are done!

The original intent was to make these much longer socks – maybe even knee length. But in the end I just couldn’t face making them any longer. Well, that just means I have pretty much of this yarn leftover, which will be pretty great for something!

The second bit of sock news I have to share with you is for anyone who is a fan of:
– sock knitting
– Iceland
– Icelandic sock knitting

You may want to check out Helene Magnusson’s Socks of Iceland pattern club. The unfortunate thing about this club is that it started October 1st, so it’s halfway done. However, it does go to the end of December, so there’s plenty more to go! I just signed up over the weekend and got all of the patterns up to now sent to me right away. You can get it on Ravelry as well, but I just bought it right off her website – more because I was so excited to get going with it than anything else πŸ™‚ So if you prefer not to deal with Ravelry for one reason or another, you have a choice πŸ™‚

The patterns so far are a real mix of styles – top down and toe up, several different heel styles – there are a lot of things to try! There is also an option to buy a Katla yarn gift set, which the socks are designed to work with, or you can knit them with stash. Lots of options!

    1. Im seriously struggling with the yarn too. In the end i sent the link to Dave and mentioned that Christmas AND my birthday are coming, and this could take care of all of that. We will see what happens. I don’t really need more yarn, but it sure is pretty!
