WIP Wednesday - 10/3/2012

It's the first Wednesday of the month...It's time to show what's currently OTN!

There are two pair of socks that are currently on the front burner - First, I present the October 2012 socks - Autumn Harvest in Monster Mash on Wullenstudio Superwash Sock Yarn.  It is the yarn I won for one of the Sock Knitter's Anonymous challenges back in June. 

The socks are a twofer - I am entering them in one of October's SKA challenges - seasonal pattern AND they are my official Socktober socks.

Next, I still have Pillars OTN in Ravelry Red on Malabrigo Sock Yarn. 

They are my September SKA challenge entry and should be finished before the end of this month to qualify. 

I have two pair of socks on the relative back burner - I am still working on the Tara socks from April. 

A lot of concentration is needed to sit down and work on these socks, and I seem to be in short supply these days.  They will get done eventually.  I promise.

Finally, I have given up waiting to finish Tara in order to use those needles (2.25mm) for the August 2012 socks. 

I bit the bullet and am making them on 2.5mm.  I prefer 2.0mm needles for my socks - and the first two are being made on 2.0s - but I figured I could get these done faster.  You may think that there is not much difference between 2.0mm and 2.5mm, but in the sock knitting world, there really is.

My goal is to finish all four pair this month.

MK out.

Love the Monster Mash colorway. All the socks are looking great. I am rooting for you to finish them all this month.
