sareini: following my fish (delirium)
I have a fair bit of sock yarn about the house, because of my Sock Yarn subscription. I tell myself I have plans for them - shawls, scarves, maybe even socks! - but I make so many plans and start so many things that the poor skeins are still waiting to be used.

Well, the other day I heard about a thing called the Tour de Sock. It's based on the Tour de France, only with sock knitting instead of cycling. The idea is that you pay $7.50 (which goes to Doctors Without Borders) and you get six sock patterns to knit. The idea is to knit them as fast as you can, and the fastest knitters get prizes.

Now, I have no illusions about my knitting speed. I knit like glaciers used to move before global warming. But Doctors Without Borders is a good cause, and six sock patterns for $7.50 is a good deal. And I have sock yarn. And I've been meaning to work on my sock knitting skills. So I signed up.

The whole thing doesn't start till July, along with the cycling, but I'm mildly excited. Should certainly be interesting and a learning experience, at the very least.
