Personal Sock Club 2010

I decided that 2010 is the year I'm going to give my sock yarn stash a good work out. So to give myself some added pleasure I have set up my own sock yarn club. I've matched 12 skeins of sock yarn to 12 patterns. Not all patterns are socks because I felt that some of the yarn was just too pretty to live on my feet. So I've included a few lace projects as well. I've bagged them all up and here they are:

Since taking the photo all the bags have been put on the top shelf of my cupboard and on the first of every month I will randomly select a bag. I have already forgotten which patterns I've chosen so I'm quite excited about selecting the first project.

Of course this doesn't mean that that is all I will be knitting in the coming year! I have plans to knit a lot of lace but I suspect that the projects in my mental knitting queue will be reshuffled often as the year progresses and I find new distractions along the way.

Here's to a New Year full of knitterly goodness! I wish you all a wonderful 2010 and may your pointy sticks stay pointy and active!

This was my intent too....guess I'll go stash-diving today.

Oh man, that's such an awesome idea!

It seems like a very good idea that I think I will copy. Combine a pattern with the skeins I have in my stash and randomly knit a new project each month.

I wish you A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
