Socks! Socks! Socks!

Say Yes to Pie. Honestly, can you say no? No whipped cream required for these tasty tootsie treats! I’m so excited to have these socks FINALLY released! After weaving in the ends of my most recent pair, I literally have NOT taken them off! The weird fraternal striping is a bonus, not a deterement. ThisContinue reading “Socks! Socks! Socks!”

Year of Projects: Week 19

Ah, the glorious post-Christmas, pre-New Year week during the October-January holiday whirlwind! Like much of 2020, I don’t know what day it is, and there is no schedule to keep me grounded. Luckily virtual learning resumes January 4, so this haze of candy induced delirium won’t last forever. This week I’ve been working on aContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 19”

Walk. Knit. Avoid Puddles. Repeat.

We’ve made it! Christmas Eve. The weeks leading up to this day have felt chaotic, honestly, more so than usual. I sent out a ton of packages (ok, like 9 or 10 and I threw out the tracking numbers) and took advantage of yesterday’s not cold temperatures and walked to the Post Office to mailContinue reading “Walk. Knit. Avoid Puddles. Repeat.”

The Lost Knits File Part Four

Its been quite some time since I’ve worked on an old WIP. With all the baby blanket crocheting and pattern designing, I’ve had busy hands. Sometimes in the evenings, while my spouse is reading the kids a bedtime story, I work on an easy project that lives in my bedroom. This particular pair of socksContinue reading “The Lost Knits File Part Four”

I Believe in Miracles

The kind of my own making. You guys. This is huge for me. I finished TWO things within 24 hours (Thursday evening/Friday afternoon). Not just two random things. But TWO PAIRS OF SOCKS. Not the long languishing socks of years past. Socks that were finished in UNDER a month of cast-on. You may say, “ButContinue reading “I Believe in Miracles”

Home Stretch!!!

You guys! I’m SOOO jazzed right now, I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to share my excitement. My “experimental” “Say Yes to Pie” socks are entering the final stage!I added the heel row on the second sock. Only 31 rows to go until I can start the (new-to-me) HEEL!! I’ve opted to complete both heels atContinue reading “Home Stretch!!!”

Progress Report: Socks, Blanket.

Today was not the day I envisioned. The confluence of my allergies and lack of sleep was not a good combination for doing my normal activities. But the combination was good to hang about and work on my “Say Yes to Pie” (working title??) socks. I am going to do the heels together, so I’mContinue reading “Progress Report: Socks, Blanket.”
