Socktoberfest: it's not too late!

There are so many exciting things about October. It's prime knitting season, with colder weather on the way. Leaves are turning color, you can start to pull out those favorite scarves and hats, and there's that funny sugar-soaked costume-fest at the end of the month. It is also a whole month of celebrating SOCKS.

Socktoberfest doesn't have many rules or expectations. There are no deadlines, and no concrete expectations, except that you can band together with the nearly two thousand other folks who are signed up to celebrate the art and joy of knitted socks! Take it as an opportunity to finish an old sock project, find a sock-ish use for some great yarn you have been holding on to, learn a new sock related skill or technique, or cast on for a pattern you've been coveting.

And in case you're lacking in inspiration, check out some of the sock patterns we've published recently!

Try the invisible cast-on, for the sprightly, toe-up Loure socks;
