Sockdown Ravelry is a year-long personal knitting challenge hosted by the Sockknitters Anonymous group on Ravelry. The challenge was designed to encourage kntters to try different techniques, master new skills and try new designers.
Each month, knitters can choose between a designer or a technique. The January choices are to either try intarsia knitting or to knit a pattern by one of my favorite designers, Cookie A. I would love to try intarsia but since I am on a ‘Dale Baby Yoke’ deadline I opted for one of Cookie’s many patterns I have yet to knit.
I’ve chosen the BFF Sock pattern. The acronym, BFF, stands for best friends forever. I won’t be knitting these socks for my best friend but will be knitting them for myself. However, in the spirit of friendship, I have chosen yarn that I received from my Monkey Sock Swap Pal, Chrispy. And, I am using some vintage Aero double point needles that Ronnie, my sock friend in England, sent me last year.
