"What is Socktoberfest?
A very simple concept with very few restrictions - Socktoberfest is a month-long (throughout the month of October) celebration of socks. It is a simple celebration of the accessories that we make as crafters to cover our feet. Think of it more as a festival than a knitalong - people who love something come together and celebrate it!
Some participants are using Socktoberfest for stashbusting purposes, using up that beautiful sock yarn that you picked up back in 1995. Others are planning to use Socktoberfest to finally finish up sock projects that have lingered too long on the needles and hooks. Still others plan to spin or dye their own sock yarn and use this to make a truly special pair of socks. Some Socktoberists use the month to make quick holiday socks for family and friends. It is truly up to you!
The festival starts on October 1st, but you can definitely start on your socks anytime! You do not have to finish your socks by October 31st either. It’s just fun to have a month dedicated to it. Socktoberfest can easily be combined with other projects and knitalongs!
Socktoberfest started in 2005"
Y yo este año voy a participar, ya tengo unos calcetines que empecé para la kdda del viernes pasado de Madrid Knits (mi calcetín es el verde...) y mañana empezaré el KAL del mystery sock 2020 organizada por through the loops.
El mystery sock consiste en hacer un calcetín con las pistas que van dando todos los viernes del mes de octubre. Así al final del mes terminas con un calcetín o dos si has ido tejiendo los dos a la vez...
