and should probably be doing something else.



I have been wearing socks this week, as the weather is cold. Well, it’s cold in the morning. Yesterday afternoon was glorious. But I digress. I’ve worn nothing but handknit socks all week. They’re really nice. This morning, I put on socks I bought I Reitmans, and they’re not nearly as comfy. Guess I’ll have to make more.

Speaking of socks, I finished the Socks That Rock ones (thanks, Saffity!):

They’re very pretty and incredibly soft. I think I mentioned in a previous post that these are plain socks, using my internalized pattern. This was false – I actually used a variation of Cat Bordhi’s Upstream pattern (Ravelry link, sorry), only instead of putting the gusset increases in the centre of the instep, I put them immediate next to the sole. Looks nice, and they fit well too. However, due to my chronic inability to take notes, the second sock is a very slightly different circumference than the first sock, but only in the leg, and I can’t be bothered to rip down and start over. They fit well enough.

On to mittens for the kids. It’s getting chilly out there!

  1. They’re absolutely gorgeous! Will you be at the Knitter’s Fair tomorrow wearing them? I still have to finish my second sock in that yarn, I look forward to wearing mine!

  2. I could! Do you want what’s left for your afghan?
