Don’t fall off your chairs or spit out your coffee (or wine, you may not be a morning reader) but I finished a pair of socks.
This is the first pair of socks I have finished since June. Yes, June. I have some theories about why sock knitting has lost it’s appeal for me but I’m saving that for November since, you know, I’m going to need all of the blog fodder I can get.
In the meantime, behold these lovelies.
The yarn is a very special color of Cherry Tree Hill: Simply Socks Yarn Company Special Edition. It’s discontinued. Sorry ’bout that.
I seriously love this color combo. Lots of creamy white with dashes of hot pink and chocolate brown. Oh yeah.
They are my usual Picot Edge Pattern. I couldn’t help but thinking – as I took these photos and looked at all of those tiny stitches – how many stitches are there in a pair of socks? This is a rhetorical question and I don’t want an answer. Seriously, my sock mojo is in enough trouble without contemplating that.
Anyway, now that they are finally finished I have given them to my dear friend, Doreen. She’s the perfect sock recipient – she squeals when she gets a pair. You just have to love that in a friend.
