Another sock down! I’m excited for this project to finally be done. I’m also taking this opportunity here to feature the new wooden sock blockers by The Loopy Ewe!

I’ve wanted a pair of wooden sock blockers for a while and the little cut-out sheep design won me over instantly when I saw them. It also helps me share FO news, because it’s no longer a requirement to model these things and take awkward selfies to make blog posts happen.

I had the bright idea to not only go for a 3-to-1 rib leg, but also to try to knit until all of the yarn ran out. This thing bored me to death. My slide socks currently in progress are doing great work of keeping my interest as a contrast.

Unrelated but very exciting– I’ve committed to two big knitting things for myself beginning this fall/winter. Last week, I ordered not only a sweater quantity of yarn for my NaKniSweMo project (more info on this next time), but I’ve also purchased my kit for a Hue Shift Afghan, which is gonna be a lot of fun to sink my teeth into! I’ve never knit a mitered square before, so I expect to really level up in knitting those things by the time that blanket’s finished.

Do you have any challenging/exciting fibercraft things going on this season? Big NaKniSwemo plans? Stashbusting projects?
