A Flock of Socks

This spring, I tried competitive speed knitting for the first time.  I use the words "speed" and "competitive" loosely, my speed being about average and the competition being more like camaraderie.

In the fiber community, Ravelry, there are many sock-knitting groups.  Two of them are Sock Madness and Tour de Sock.  The former is March-Madness-themed, the later based on the Tour de France.

Object?  To knit socks quickly (if you want to) and enjoy knitting-along, chatting, meeting new people, and learning new things.  Mission accomplished!

While Tour de Sock is still in Stage 3 of 6, I must admit that my enthusiasm for sock-knitting is slowly giving way to my excitement for spinning.  Tour de Fleece is just around the corner and I've been knitting a lot of socks!

Here are the socks I've knit (so far) in 2015:
