First 2012 FO

This is not the greatest photo, but at least it's of an FO! I completed my Honey Badger socks (Sanguine Gryphon Bugga yarn) earlier this week and am so thrilled with them. This pattern was really an awesome sock pattern to get me back into knitting regularly and loving every moment of it.

My brain was telling me as I took the picture that the red comforter wasn't the most ideal backdrop for my orange/red socks. So,
you can't really see the simple little detail in the sock in this photo. That little detail was enough to keep it interesting, but yet simple enough to not make me feel overwhelmed while knitting them.

I also knitted these socks pretty fast. Not as fast as I have in the past, but a huge improvement over the last sock I started to knit and had put it to the side for so long that when I picked it back up to work on I couldn't remember what pattern it was that I was knitting and ended up frogging it. I started these Honey Badger socks on October 19th and finished them on January 16th. Pretty good eh? I am off to a good start to having more than one FO this year. Yay for me!

Unfortunately this yarn doesn't go towards my stash busting. When I tallied up my total stash yardage I didn't include the yarn that was in WIPs. However, I can say that I have been working on two other projects this month utilizing stash yarn so I am happy.


  1. It's ok that the socks aren't from stash because you're just making room on your needles to knit stash next. The socks look nice and cozy. Definitely useful right now!

  2. A good way to start the new year, good socks make you feel good and are very practical. Yay for Honey Badger.
