Start as you mean to go on, right? I know I had largely abandoned the blog for months, but I’m hoping to get back into writing again. It would probably be a good outlet for me.
I’m knitting a Baby Yours by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee for a friend’s new baby. I’ve finished the sleeves and the back. Now I’m working on the two front pieces.
I also have a pair of socks on the go. They’re plain vanilla socks made with Felici sock yarn from Knit Picks in the “Jingle” colorway (not on their site right now – it’s red, green, white stripes). I started them last year (or the year before??) and stalled out after doing one heel. While we traveled for winter holidays, I turned the other heel and started up both legs. Now it’s my “purse” knitting and I work on them in the car or at hockey games. I managed to get 2 more stripes done while at Thing 1’s games this past weekend.
I’m so thankful that I was a devoted sock knitter for a while. I’ve been knitting other things lately, but I have this drawer of lovely woolen socks to wear now that winter has decided to arrive. I really enjoy seeing all the colors lined up in my drawer waiting to keep me warm.
