Year of the Sock

I have declared 2011 to be the Year of the Sock! I plan to knit 11 pairs this year. Totally doable, right?

I mean, just for starters I'm almost done with the first of the Big Black Socks:

All this needs is another inch or so of ribbing before I bind off.

And since I took this picture, I turned the heel on the first Faux Fair sock:

So it needs another few inches and it, too, will be ready to go.

Then I'm going to cast on a test knit in this:

So that's three pairs sussed out, and January's not even over.

Aside from these, I also owe my dad a pair (promised for Christmas), and I . . . somehow . . . may not have anything appropriate in the stash. I also have in mind to knit the Irishman another pair of socks for Valentine's Day; the socks I knit for him last year are wearing out a bit on the soles. (My fault for knitting them in something without added strength--he's hard on them.)

Malabrigo Sock in Archangel? Total guess there, but pretty yarn. Love the socks! (I need to get me one of those sock needle covers.)
