What to Knit Next?

Well I'm about to find out what I'll be knitting next with a simply draw from a hat. Zonda and I will be travelling to the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair together at the end of October and have been joking around about challenging each other to either finish our Weekend Getaway Satchels or to knit some fabulous socks with the skein of Wollmeise Rhabarber we each have in time to have the project finished for the festival.

We decided on knitting the socks. The problem came when we had to pick a pattern. We were able to decide that a pattern with ribbing would be the way to go and Zonda came up with several great choices.

The problem was we couldn't decide which ribbing pattern to knit. We were both kinds of wishy washy about the whole thing. So we have decided to leave the choice up to chance and draw out of a hat.

In order to be as fair and unbiased as possible - I found a totally impartial person to draw - my husband. Ready Z? And the pattern will be knitting is, drum roll please ......

Looks like we will be knititng socks with the garter rib stitch pattern from either of the Sensation Knitted Socks book. Now I just need to get busy and cast on. And, if you see two ladies wondering around SAFF with matching pink and green socks...it will probably be Zonda and me so come up and say hi.

Garter rib is a terrific pattern. I've used it several times. Turns out great socks, especially when you have fabulous yarn with which to knit. Have fun.

Hee! You're coming to SAFF too? Turtlegirl is dragging me down with her (kicking and screaming, natch. ;) ). I knew Zonda was coming, but I didn't realize you'd be there too!

So, I guess I should clue Pam into the fact we're sharing a room?

Zonda said...

And the race is on! Which ones are these socks? Should they be my first attempt at socks? I'm going to need to decide fairly soon. Good Luck...
