If there’s anything I’ve learned since bringing Fred & George into our lives, it’s that my knitting projects needs to be small. As in, small enough to stuff into a zippered bag quickly should the little
devils sweethearts show any interest in what I’m doing. Spoiler alert: they almost always show interest when the yarn comes out.
Believe me, I would love to be working on my Daytripper Cardigan with my souvenir Icelandic yarn. But the wool fumes from that yarn are quite obviously stronger than any other wool fumes in the house and the only way I can work on that is to either lock Fred & George in a room away from me or lock myself in a room away from them. And I’m just not willing to do that.
So. I’m knitting socks.
The yarn is from The Cozy Knitter and it’s the 2022 Advent 24 stripe skein. The colors are wonderful and the stripes are wildly entertaining. I’m using yarn from the stash for the cuff, heel and toe. I’m really enjoying the heck out of knitting these.
Even if it is only when Fred & George are asleep.
