or more accurately, the year of 12 pairs of socks, or perhaps, the year of 24 socks. That's my new year's resolution (that, along with taking vitamins). Anyway, I tried to finish the tofutsies socks from hell, but I was distracted by the loveliness of Maui.
Of course, before we flew out for Maui, we left some pretty chilly Northern Californian weather (I know, midwesterners think I'm a wimp) and so I was furiously knitting toddler socks.
Incidentally, I never realized it was so hard to buy wool socks for children until I had a toddler with cold feet. All the storebought socks here are cotton/nylon.
Artyarns from Full Thread Ahead to the rescue:
Or even better, you resolve to make both socks longer and then you discover it comes down to this:
Doh! Had to kitchener the toe with some random stash yarn.
Of course, I did manage to finish these in Maui--not that we needed them in the 79 Degrees F weather.
Then I started some socks for myself but got too vigorous.
btw, very proud to share that this is my oldest sock yarn from stash. It's Cherry Tree Hill in African Grey and Kristi and Cookie were the only reason I bought it. Now I'm glad I did, it's beautiful and it's the reason I was motivated to learn how to knit a sock in the first place. Go sock evangelists!
