My Casbah socks are going so slowly that they're almost going backwards. My Peppermint Crisp socks are actually going backwards, as the pattern I picked wasn't working out and I ripped back to the toes. The Soctoberpuss socks are tiny, but they're not really getting any time.
So I don't think I'm going to manage a pair a month next year, even if the Yarn Harlot can. Instead, I'm joining the Super Special Six Pattern Sock Club 2011 (!) to make 6 pairs. Here are my yarn choices...

1. Patonyle sock yarn, chocolate-dyed by me.

2. Dream in Color Smooshy. Color: Spring Tickle

3. EGMTK. Color: dark green

4. Wired For Fibre Greta. Color: denim

5. Two Tees. Color: Kaleidoscope

6. Dream in Color Smooshy. Color: In Vino Veritas

Here's a link to the chosen sock patterns, with knitting dates and pictures. We're all doing Shur’tugal, Nutkin, Leyburns, Fox Faces, Nanner and Boyfriend Socks.

You might not have heard of Two Tees, as I think 'Sue from the knitting group" has only just started dyeing it. I got some pretty quick, from her HawthorneCottage site. Luckily she lives "around the corner", so she put it in my letterbox, all balled up for me :)

My eyes are bigger than my stomach at the moment. I have a contagious case of startitis, so stay away! hehe.

First pattern is Shur'tugal, and I'm doing it in the red Smooshy. I've got it all worked out. Whether I can finish the socks I'm on before Jan 1 is another thing. But I ordered some new 2.5mm circulars this week, so I can just start new socks. LOL. I'm trying to finish my Casbah socks and another project by the end of the year... we shall see...

6 pairs of socks in a year is totally doable, Tam. I have faith!

I like your colour choices, numbers one and two in particular.

It's great how you have a varied choice of colours :D

Le sigh. Smooshy. And you have 2 skeins! I have none. This makes me sad.
It's an interesting idea, and one that's totally do-able. i must check it out!

What a great idea. Love the colors you picked out. Can't wait to see the finished socks.
