2016 #yearofsockschallenge

 
Good evening readers!
As promised, I have gathered my list of 2016 #yearofsockschallenge patterns that I plan on knitting this coming year. Again, I’m going to try to only to knit 12 pair in 2016 (let’s be honest, I have no control! But it’s a nice idea.)

Let’s fast forward a couple of weeks to January and jump right into the first socks.

I think that this list of socks will help me improve my knitting skills. There are a few easy patterns I’ve mixed in because I don’t want to burn myself out with difficult socks.

Are there socks that you are looking forward to making soon? Do you want to challenge yourself to a yearly sock challenge?
