I’ve never really been one to make a New Years resolution but I thought I would give it a shot this year. It’s not an improving on myself sort of resolution but more of a goal of sorts. And it’s knitting related of course!
Next year I want to knit a pair of socks every month. And not just any socks but Lord of the Rings socks. I found an ebook with 9 patterns called the Fellowship of the Socks by Claire Ellen. There is one pattern inspired by each of the 9 characters in the Fellowship of the Ring included. She also has two other Lord of the Rings sock ebooks with 3 and 6 patterns respectively of socks inspired by other important characters from the book series. I will probably make some of them as well to fill out my 12 required socks for the year. Hopefully this will be a fun challenge for me and I will actually be able to finish it as the socks are all full of very intense cables.
And just because I thought it would be fun and go along with my knitting challenge I am rereading the Fellowship of the Ring.
I wish you all a very happy new year!
