Yay! I figured out the whole buttons in the sidebar thing all by myself, just some patience and a couple of internet tutorials. I'm patting myself on the back right now.
I said I would post about Socktoberfest when I was done with the button, so here goes. I have never knit a pair of socks before, and I've only crocheted baby socks. I'm going to crochet myself my first pair of socks with some Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in a pink colorway hidden in the stash, but first I have to find the perfect pattern. I've been browsing the other SF participant's blogs to see who else crochets, but no luck yet. I'm also going to use up my sock yarn scraps to make preemie socks, and I'll add them to the hats I plan to donate.
Those are really my only goals for Socktoberfest, I have to think about Christmas presents right now, so I don't want to set my sights too high. I can't wait to have my own pair of handmade socks, though, so I'm excited to get started. Happy sock knitting (or crocheting!)
