Finally Finished The Plunge

In 2007 when I was still relatively new to knitting I learned to knit socks. I knit them on two circular needles. I began knitting two at once, then realized I could finish faster knitting one at a time. I also learned to mark my rows, instead of inches, to get two socks of the exact same length. I joined the original 52 Pair Plunge. I did not finish my pairs within a year which was the goal. But last night I did finish the 52nd Pair and I still feel the achievement was worth the effort - despite the late completion date.

This is the very last sock of my 52 Pair Plunge.

Lapis Sock

Plain stockinette sock in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Medium Weight Colorway Lapis, knit on Knit Picks Harmony Needles US Size 3 (3.25mm).
The journey can be seen on my sock only blog at 52 Pair Plunge Gallery
