When I first learned to knit socks around 2005/2006 I would knit sock after sock after sock each month. I was probably cranking out a pair of socks in a week on average. I went to the first Sock Summit and knit 3 pairs of socks in a long weekend.
Yeah, those days are gone. Now that I design (and what I design is pretty much not socks), I don't knit socks too often these days. They make an appearance here and there at knit night, when I have a design project that requires a little too much attention for gabbing all night with friends. That is why it took me 15 months to complete this plain ol' pair of socks. That is pretty pathetic.
Knit Picks Felici in the Time Traveler colorway. I had no idea it was Doctor Who themed colors, until Laura pointed it out to me at Stitches! (not yet into Doctor Who, I've been spending a lot of time watching Mad Men and Felicity. Judge me on the Felicity watching if you must). I just bought it because I loved the colors.
Have you been knitting stripey socks lately? What's your favorite self-striping sock yarn?
