Crafty Friday 10/8 - Socktoberfest

Happy Friday!! If only Friday meant as much to a farmer....hehe.

Have you heard about Socktoberfest? Are you a member of Ravelry?

Well, for those of you that don't know, Ravelry is the place for knitters and other fiber artists to hang out. It's a whole lot of fun and there are lots of great people there.

In Ravelry there are groups and one of those groups is celebrating Socktoberfest. Basically it's just a fun way to celebrate sock knitting and it just sounds cool when you say it. :o)

I'm working on my first pair of socks for Socktoberfest right now. I'm using this fun pattern I found in the book Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn. It's called Herringbone Rib socks. I'm using some of my own sock yarn to make them. I love this soft, squishy yarn. I'm using the colorway Mermaid Lagoon.

I've already got the pattern and yarn picked out for the next pair too. Now if only I could find more time to knit....
