Sock-Along 2016

I have decided to try and knit 12 pairs of socks - 1 pair a month for the duration of 2016.

I would love it if you would join me.

These are the socks that I have tentatively planned for each of the months:
(These may well change over the year, depending on what tickles my fancy at the beginning of each month, but I will update you as soon as it does if it does :) )

This is an open Sock-Along, which means that any sock pattern you choose is eligible.
You can knit the same patterns I am knitting or your own choice.

Are you up for the challenge?
I hope I am. 

I think it would be wonderful to have other knitters join me as it will be a great motivation to keep on the path of 12 socks, especially if there are others doing the challenge with me.

I have opened a Thread in the Ravelry group for and will open new threads for each month where you can share your month's projects and chat :)

I look forward to having you join me over the next year to accomplish 12 pairs of awesome socks!

Edit: There are also now gorgeous Prizes to be won! Three winners (1 for each month) will be drawn at the end of a three month cycle (First draw at the end of March and then End of June, September and December) and each of the 3 winners will win something amazing!

To take part all you need to do is become a member of Marigolds' Loft Group on Ravelry  and finish a pair of socks that you cast on in the same month!
Share you progress in the WIP/FO Thread on Ravelry and you will be automatically entered into the Draw!

Good Luck!

You will hear more about the lovely sponsors over the next while.

  1. oh I love this! I am joining you!!

    1. Hi Jeanettebr,
      Thank you for joining me, I hope together we make it happen :)

  2. Have just joined you too. Trying to finish a pair currently so I can start on time! Karin

    1. Hi Planet Hooker,
      Awesome, I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations :)

  3. What a great idea. A pair in a month is do-able for me, but doing it for 12 months would be a challenge. Seriously thinking of joining in!

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      yes, I think that is more the challenge for me too.
      I know that I could manage a pair a month time-wise, but I am not sure how high my perseverance level is and I am willing to test that out!
      I would love to have you join for as long as you have fun :)

  4. I'd love to join, but think a pair every other month is more realistic for me!

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      Feel free to join in every other month!
      the goal is to get a healthy bunch of handmade socks in the sock/ gift drawer, I would love to have you join in!
