My knitting group companions Erin and Jessica of the Doubleknit Podcast have decided that 2012 is the year of FFS – the Finish, Frog, and Slog along.

As someone with far too many WIPs, I think this is a splendid idea. So here’s my first finish:

I started these plain socks for Halloween, but as you can see it took me a while to get to them. I like wearing plain stockinette socks, and I have a lot of variegated yarn, so I try to keep some going most of the time.

Started: 10/6/11
Finished: 1/19/12
Yarn: Crash Into Ewe in Monster Mash

So, after finishing these plain socks, I started another pair in the yarn I dyed at Stephania’s class. It started off like this:


And changed to this:


And is making some interesting striping socks, which I’ll show you in a bit!

I’ve also been putting in some time on some languishing non-sock projects, but more on that later.
