On a Sock Kick
Last week, I finished a pair of gift socks and posted them with my fingers crossed, hoping they'd get to their destination by today. Happily, the package arrived yesterday, so there was plenty of time!
After those were done, I was deciding what to do next and realised I still felt sockish, so I grabbed a skein of sock yarn, decided on a stitch pattern for the instep, cast on, and knit away. I finished the first one of the pair last night and a short time later, cast on and started knitting its mate. Just to be on the safe side, when I was packing yarn last week in preparation for our move, I removed enough yarn for another pair, just in case I finish this pair and still feel the socks calling to me. I have decided on the instep stitches too, so if the urge is still there, I will be ready! 😉
