My sock knitting goal for the year is one pair of socks per month. When I went to SPA in February I was a bit ahead of that goal and was just starting my March socks. The yarn I chose, in keeping with the spirit of SPA, was Sophie’s Toes in the color Just A Small Gathering of Friends. This yarn was Emily’s entry into the Dye for Glory contest for Sock Summit and I thought it was the perfect choice to take with me for my own gathering of friends.
I started knitting and was honestly not loving the way the colors looked knitted up. I kept at it, though, because I was determined and, hell, I had started and that was enough for me.
I was delighted – absolutely delighted – Saturday night when Kim reached over and fondled them and commented on how much she loved the colors. I instantly offered to knit them for her.
Kim is such a sweet person and a wonderful friend and I was just thrilled with the chance to do something special for her in the way of hand knit socks.
I finished them up on April 2nd (slightly behind schedule) and made a pretty sock label for them (tutorial here because I know someone will ask) and finally mailed them North last week.
I hope Kim loves them as much as I love her!
