    I am often knitting to meet a loved one's request or a need... so any sock knitting on my part may be random and out-of-sync with the planned schedule, but I will post photos when I can.

      The themes are very flexible as there are many patterns that will work with the theme. If you choose to do your own thing, that's ok. Any pair of finished socks earns an entry into the prize drawing. Following the theme and using the monthly color earns bonus entries.

      I love this, that all socks are part of the SKAL.

    Love the planned out schedule. I'm sure
    Char is glad to have someone else take care of that for her!

      I'm so happy to help out. The only hard part was figuring out a color for November. First, I thought brown because of pilgrim's clothes. Then I double checked on that and they wore black. I asked my husband what color he thinks of when it comes to November. He said, "Grey, because the sky gets so dreary in November." I said, "Oh that doesn't help me. That's too depressing!" I had to be a little creative by saying turkeys and pie crust are beige.
