January Socks: Finished (in January, really!)
I did finish the Chili Pepper socks in January. 11:25 p.m. on January 31st to be exact. I told M I just couldn’t screw up the Sock Pair a Month in 2008 (started by Kelly of Kelp! Knits) in the first month. So, he left me in peace and I got the socks DONE.
You may remember that the first sock had a yellow lightning bolt up the sole. This was not true of the second sock; it has a BIG RED SPOT.
But the BIG RED SPOT (it needs all caps, trust me, I’ve seen it in person) is just fine and adds to the fun, bright nature of these socks. I really liked knitting with the Great Adirondacks Silky Sock yarn. And the socks are very comfortable.
For February, I’ll be knitting a single sock, but what a single! I’m going to knit the mate to the Twisted Flower sock that Jean knit for me. February is a short month, and this is an involved sock, so I think it’s a perfectly legit thing to do. Plus, I want to wear the socks!
I hope you are all having a good week. I’m off to knit.

How fun – a nice counterpoint to winter. I’m knitting with Silky Sock, too. 🙂
Ooo, I like those! We all need a shot of brightness in the winter…
Brenda- Whoa- get the sunglasses. I love them.
And it is a leap year, so you have an extra day.
Jupiter also has a big red spot, and nobody pushes Jupiter around! So wear yours proudly. 😉
Oh, what’s a spot here and there, really? One pair done, 11 to go!
Wow, Brenda! Twisted Flower socks is gorgeous…I think that would take a lot of undivided attention and the entire month of February for me. I like the January socks. Beautiful red shades.
Nice, bright socks! The foot is am knitting now has a BIG WHITE SPOT
The socks are great! I really liked the Great Adirondack Soxie, too, but got a little dismayed with the pooling as well. I’m going to focus on solid colors for a while. 🙂 Congrats on meeting your goal!
Woo! Those are some very bright socks! They look great! And I definitely think one twisted flower is a good goal for a short month. Can’t wait to see it!
I like the way the colors lined up on the feet! I think the Twister Flower sock is a perfect goal for February. Have fun!
The red is perfect for Heart Month! (ok…you knit them in January in preparation for Heart Month, right?)
Now those are some bright socks! Happy!
I love those socks!
I like those they remind me of my Mouontain Colors Firestorm.
I can’t wait to see your twisted flower sock, that is a pretty sock.
Love the socks!
Nice looking hot socks! They remind me of thermal imaging.
(They look great! I’d better decide what I want to do for February…)
That’s dedication to hang in there ’til almost midnight to finish the January socks. Nicely done! They came out great and look very comfy.
