52 pair plunge: sock 1

Right on the very day of the deadline, I was foolish enough to sign up for the second 52 pair plunge.  Beer may have been involved.
Anyway, the 'plunge' has been in progress for 20 days now, and I have knit… zero socks.  Well,not true, as I have finished my Big Green Socks (Ravelry link), but they don't count, because they were already on the needles.

Let's face it, there's no way I'm going to knit 52 pairs of socks in a year.  Goals are all very well, but if they're not attainable, they're jut depressing.  So I'm going to aim to knit 52 *socks* in a year.  Phew!  Far more sensible.  They don't all have to match, either, just to keep my options open

So, now that's sorted out, here's the first one, just started:


I'm actually much further on with this now, just about to start the heel, but for now, you'll have to wait for the proof.  😉


  • I saw this sock just now on Ravelry and just had to come and get the scoop!
    I think Polly (alltangledup) is starting on the 21st. Not sure why, since I would never consider this as anything other than a spectator sport!
    We’ll be cheering you on!

  • Good luck! I’m starting the SOS tomorrow (not getting up at 6.01 though! P is doing both challenges!

  • I think I’d be willfully stabbing myself with size ones by week 32…..

  • goals are good for putting us outside our comfort zone. It’s not always about achieving the goal but more about achieving more that you thought that you could.
    the 52pp allows you to count socks already on the needles too… so don’t stress about it. I think that 52 socks is a pretty big goal to achieve!
