2008 Rockin Sock Club Wrap Up and more

I didn't expect to knit all my kits last year, but somehow I did.

(missing is Monkey1's Sweet Tart's 'cause I can't find it...yet)

The last kit was fun and fast once I focused on it.

yarn: Socks that Rock medium weight in Muddy Autumn Rainbow - how fascinating what you get when you swish in extra red dye to Fire on the Mountain
pattern: Holidazed by Anne Hanson
needles: size 2 (2.75 mm) Knit Picks Harmony dpns
patten size: medium
mod: only decreased the toe down to 16 sts rather than 8

Also completed in Socks that Rock are my Leyburn socks as part of the Socks that Rawk Raverly group's KAL.

yarn: Socks that Rock lightweight in The Cookie Next Door
pattern: Leyburn socks
needles: 2.50 mm Knit Picks nickel plated dpns
converted pattern to cuff down w/slip stitch heel flap
cast on 66 sts and maintain stitch count in the foot as well

And in between all that, I finished a hat.

yarn: Knit Picks Swish worsted in Lemongrass Heather
pattern: Meret (Mystery Beret)
needles: Knit Picks size 7 & 8 nickel-plated circs
pattern size: medium w/the 1 extra repeat of the lace pattern for slouch

Wow! Great job on all the socks. I'm still 0 for 12 on sock club kits. Although, I'm knitting Goody Goody. Just not in the pattern provided.

Your socks are beret are just lovely! I can't believe you knit all the kits! I didn't even knit one, which is sad. And the reason that I couldn't justify joining the club this year, even though all those designers were SO tempting!

So nice to see all the club socks together. My favourite colour is the red :0)

And that beret is so pretty :0)

Yes, and I see from all 6 pairs posted that five are semi-solids and in fact the last two pair are exactly the same colorway!-ROFLMAO!

OK, couldn't help it! I'm evil...

No one can say you can't justify another RSC year!

I love the recap! Are you psyched that the first 2009 package is coming soon?
