Progress with Tear my Sole..........

With the start of the new club looming I am determined to get these finished this week only leaving one pair left from last years club to finish before the end of February. Now I know why we get half terms from school.
This isn't a particularly hard pattern but it has several individual elements within it that make me concentrate.

I love the pretty cuff design.

The back of the sock is an interesting choice, maybe a little drafty.....

I knitted a similar stitch in the Knit and Tonic, Dreamswatch scarf.

So one sock down, second cast on and hoping to be finished by the weekend.

You're so fast! I'd never be able to get a pair of socks knit in one week.

I can knit a pair in about 4 evenings if Carl does the cooking and puts the kids to bed! I just need to squeeze the time in to get these ones finished. At least the next package isn't here quite yet!

Oooo you girly swot!

I did the first drafty stitch and pulled back to the cuff - and just missed out the cross stitch. If I did them I wouldn't wear them...

I'm nearly finished the first sock - and I'm also aiming for the end of Feb. I want a Queen Bee!

Hi, I read your blog all the time but never comment...but then I read on the socktopods group you like people to comment so thought I'd say hi (I'm a bit of a lurker there too!).

I'm in the 2009 Socktopus club too and I am massively over excited - it's my first sock club so the idea of receiving surprise yarn in the post is still a novelty. Good luck on finishing the socks, they look great so far.

I am in awe of you almost finishing these beautiful socks. Now I have seen yours I want to cast mine on too!
