Time for a mid week check in on the knitting and reading . . .…
Don’t you worry about the sock yarn stash. I’m doing my best to knit it down. I’ve even got proof in the form of a newly finished pair of socks – the tenth pair of 2007, in fact.
I’ve been calling these Spring Fling Socks and they are a gift but I can’t tell you who they are for because the recipient occasionally reads this here blog. I can tell you lots of other things though.
And I can tell you how I love the 2 X 2 ribbing on the legs. I thought I would get bored with the never-ending knit 2, purl 2, but I actually enjoyed it very much.
And I can also tell you how much I love a traditional heel flap and gusset. Honestly, I never get tired of knitting a heel flap, turning a heel, and picking up stitches. It’s magic, I tell you.
Or how much I love a regular old toe. Doesn’t the sock look like it’s smiling? I’m smiling, too. These took exactly two weeks to finish.
I guess I really love these socks! I don’t love dandelions but I couldn’t help but notice how well the colors of the dandelions match the colors of the socks. And I know someone who does love dandelions. Wanna come over for omelets, Norma?
