Ivy wanted to know why I hadn’t been blogging about my knitting. Answer: because with all the writing, I hadn’t been doing much of it!
For Christmas, you remember I knit my husband a sock. *sigh* I finished the second sock in mid-January, and then I got to work on the sock yarn he’d gotten me for Christmas. He wanted me to make a pair of socks for myself for once.
Remember it’s impossible for me to knit for me.
Well, here it is, JUNE, nearly the end of June in fact, and I finally got the socks finished.
They’ve got beads. They’ve got lace. They’ve got ladders. They’ve got mistakes (including one very stupid mistake I didn’t realize until I was weaving in the ends.) They’re a little too big but that’s okay: I think they’ll shrink over time.
I’ve also got no yarn mojo right now. I’m working on finishing up a prayer shawl I started two years ago, but that’s more because I feel like I should be doing something rather than because I want to.
But really, I’ve got socks. Socks I made for myself.
