I established rules for my Love Your Library adventure.
Rule 1: Do one project per month.
Rule 2: Patterns should come from books and they should be sock books. Did I have 12 books to use? This is what I pulled off of the bookshelf:
I have used some of these before, but not very many. There were several that I'd completely forgotten about. I chose Socktopus by Alice Yu for my January project.
Rule 3: I can pick any yarn I want from my stash. I spent a couple of years trying to use up my oldest yarns. I discovered that one of the reasons yarns stay in my stash for a long time is that I don't like them. I decided to use one of my brand new yarns, Monet's Garden.
