The year of the sock?

A few years ago I participated in a sock challenge to make one pair of socks every month for a year. I did it, and it was a great way to restock our winter sock inventory. As I sit here on the train working on my third pair this year (though two of the recently completed pairs were started last year), I am considering doing this again. Stash knows I have enough sock yarn, and enough feet in my knit-worthy circle to gift them to. Hmm.

Daffodil hat

It must have been during last winter’s endless grey days that I spun this, because it’s the pefect antidote to THIS winter’s endless grey days…

Stash diving

I had to venture into the attic yesterday to hunt down some fiberfill, and while I was up there this handsome yarn that I spun last year leaped into my hands. I have a tendency to overspin, but not on this lovely. It’s soft and bouncy, light and warm. I spun it fractal, so there will be smooth striping; I think it wants to be a hat.

Hello from the beach

Spending a couple days doing very little aside from knitting, eating, etching movies, playing games, and walking outside. It’s wonderful!

Tube socks are done.

New socks started.

And fingerless mitts finished.

Ocean bound

Headed out of town for a girl’s weekend, and I’m not driving – so I get to crochet and navigate!
