The second delivery from my 2009 Personal Sock Club arrived today via its manilla envelope package.
We had some discussion at the Morris and Sons knitting group about whether or not the Personal Sock Club allowed you to commence another sock before the scheduled 'delivery date'. I'm being purist about this (let's avoid the word 'obsessive') and have decided that just as you receive deliveries in a real sock club on a scheduled date, so I should not see my next yarn or begin my next project before the dates I've plotted.
My second Sock Club project is The Knittery Merino Slim Sock in Bloody Mary, which is a beautiful deep red-burgundy fine yarn that I think will have great stitch definition. I've decided I don't want to make anything lacy, even though other knitters have used this yarn for lace with great success. So I've continued with my Nancy Bush passion and, having just acquired 'Knitting on the Road' have decided to make the Traveler's Stockings. Once I begin, I might change direction, but this is the plan so far.
Another sock journey.
