Stash Sock of the Month Club

Over the weekend, I was hanging around on Twitter, and saw that Stephanie Pearl-McPhee was planning on taking her own advice and was going to make a sock of the month club out of her stash. I remember her saying this somewhere else before (in one of her books or on the blog or something, I think) and it seemed like a really good idea. So, I organized one out of my stash: Sorry for the bad iPhone pic there. It's all I have of the Sock of the Month kit making. I dug through the stash and went through my Rav. queue and some of the books that have been much neglected on my bookshelf and came up with 12 kits. The plan is to pull one out at random at the beginning of each month and knit the kit. Good use of the stash, I say! And who knows? Maybe I will get through them quickly. My knitting bud Jen seems to think I could do 24 in a year, but I don't know. That's a lot of socks.

So what do we have for January? Well, it's something out of this yarn:
Which is my own hand-dyed yarn. It's Crazy Soft Sock in the City of Blinding Lights colorway. (I have another skein on etsy...tempt, tempt). And, the pattern?

Why, it's Bellatrix! This pattern has been in my queue for well over a year and it was time. It was the perfect yarn for the pattern. A great start to my Stash Sock of the Month kit! Currently I am on the cuff of sock number two. It's a really quick knitting sock.
So, what are you knitting this week? Planning on making any kits of your own?
Happy knitting!
