September socks.

A bit more poking around and I found a polling widget. Check out the sidebar to see potential options for September's socks!!  Respond with comments about ones you'd like me to add to the polling list (think it's easier if one person owns the poll for each month - someone else gets to own October, November, etc.!)

Now if I could find a great calendar widget, we'd be set - absent that, I've created a simple list with the meetups that we have planned for the next few weeks.

August socks.

So - looks like the shop is going to host toe-up socks for the next KAL. I'm thinking Wendy Johnson's double eyelet rib (thanks to Beth for the suggestion), since they look different from the ones that we've already done here!  The timing will probably be August - and I can't even knit one pair of socks in a month, so suggest we follow along and knit whatever the shop picks that month.

Now we're looking for September selections.  And that is SO not urgent!!

Suggestions on how to make a decision? the beginning lace group on Ravelry posts a new thread each month and the members put up suggestions and use the agree/disagree buttons to vote. I don't know how to translate that idea here.

sock ideas for after July?

...ok, everyone knows we're knitting a vanilla sock with a picot edge (thank you, Beth) for July. What about after that?

Check out Beth's suggestions. or mine.

Lynn's suggestions: zig zag socks, retro rib socks, merino lace socks, embossed leaves socks, waving lace socks, or something from Sensational Knitted Socks.
