Something new

With the Christmas knitting pressure off, I didn’t waste any time in casting on a new project – socks! I know, such a shocker…

This time in a self-striping sock yarn (Patons Kroy), in plain stockinette. It’s crazy-busy for me at work right now (year-end; if you are a financial sort you’ll know exactly what this entails), so I need projects that require practically no thought during my commute. Stockinette socks it is, but at least the striping yarn makes them seem less plain.

I have a bunch of finished projects to show off, but I may wait until after the gifting so I don’t ruin any surprises.

P.S. Proofreading my post, my eyes zoomed in on “thought” and it looks wrong. Must be a sign that my brain is fried.

P.P.S. I know the socks look wonky in the picture, but I assure you they are the same size. The one on the left is just curling funny on the cable.

P.P.S.S. At least, I think they are the same size. I’m pretty sure I triple-counted the stitches. But that requires THOUGHT, which I’ve already established is not my strong suit right now.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
