Frogged

The deed is done.

Hmm, wonder what I'll knit next! There is the case of a sock for September, but here I have a confession. I can no longer keep up with knitting a pair of socks every month and keep up with the other knitting projects. I am a slow knitter and have many other projects on the go. Very few of which are remotely nearing completion.

So I hereby close the Moogsmum and Stashbasket sock club. I shall still be knitting socks, but without the pressure of must finish by the end of the month. And I really, really must get on with this infernal Mystery Blanket (when all I really want to do is cast this on using a great many of the different small balls of sock yarn I have... mmm, stripey leftover cardi...) (anyone fancy joining me?!)

Does this mean I no longer have to spend each month thinking about how I am not knitting the sock I didn't officially sign up to do? Phew. This gives me more time to procrastinate and think about all teh otehr stuff I am not going to do each month.

My Nutkin is no more - went to the frog pond a few days ago. How strange that this pattern just didn't do it for either of us.

Can't say I'm sorry to see the back of the sock club - at least for a while. Mind you, I've invested in rather a staggering amount of sock yarn this year so will have to carry on for at least two years!
