A Year of Sock Counting

2006

The STATS: Number of Sock Counters: 142
Total pairs knitted in 2006: 942!!

This weekend I went onto everyones' blogs and, as best I could, made sure I had up-to-date sock counts. We started out the year with 982 socks, and knit 942 this year, for a whopping total of 1924!! That's a LOT of socks!!

The Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Theresa of Knitting Underway, who has knit a total whopping lifetime total of 100 pairs of socks!, and has already received her prize. For those of you who may not know, Theresa was my inspiration to start counting socks :o)

Most Socks Knit goes to Stariel, who knit 50 PAIRS of socks!! Congratulations Stariel... send me your snail mail address, you've got a prize coming to you!

A big thanks to everyone who participated in Count Your Socks this year. I apologize for being probably the worse KAL host ever, I just didn't envision how much time it would entail. I will not be able to keep updating the site for 2007, so I guess official signups are closed, but I encourage everyone to keep their sock counter buttons up on their side bars, and KEEP COUNTING SOCKS!

THANKS so much for playing along, it's been fun!

50 pair??? Holy cow...that puts my measley 15 pair to shame LOL!! At any rate, I'm proud of the 15 because those are the first 15 I have ever knitted!

So far this year I have 1 pair (another one in the works), and I'm keeping my button up so I can keep track.

Congrats to both winners...50 & 100 pair is awesome! I've got a lot of sock knitting ahead of me to catch up...

I plan on keeping up with my count! Thank you for organizing this. It must have taken you forever to travel to all of our blogs.

I would love a sock count button, but I'm not sure how to make it work. Would you send me the text? If not, I'll muscle through at some point... I think keeping track of socks knitted is a fun idea!

Hi Lynda! Thanks for CYS, it was fun! I forgot to update my socks: finally in 2006 I got 30/50, which means 20 pairs during the year.

Wow - and it took me about 5 years to knit all 100! Thanks, Linda!
