So, these were finished on Friday evening while Ramblin and I were in Kentucky, just in time for gifting.
Both these and the blue socks were well-loved by their new owners.
And then today, I finished these.
And now I’m back to working on those zany Ziggity Zag socks.
I’m so glad I posted about my missing sock mojo. It’s clearly returned to me in spades. This might be handy to keep in mind when I do NaNoWriMo next month.
So, these are done.
And I stared these.
And I thought Socktober was going to be sockless. Ha.
A sock monster.
These are going to be birthday socks for a very dear lady. It’s yarn I dyed that I wasn’t too sure about, but it’s working up fantastically. Yay for no pooling! (and now they will start pooling, of course)
. . . I would have posted about losing my sock mojo sooner!
Behold – socks! (or at least the start of them)
Yarn I bought in Vancouver from a local artist
It might have worked a little too well, as I’m finding myself wanting to cast on all the socks.
As a special request for one of the readers out there, I’ll also post more of the hat rampage.
More hats for photography props
And Ramblin’s hunting hat
I have more knitting that needs blocking and photos, but that seems to be slower than even the sock mojo had been. Hmm, maybe posting about it will motivate me for that, too.
And who isn’t working on a pair of socks? This gal. In fact, the last pair I finished was in June. June. Really.
What’s going on? Well, there’s a pair I started based on a pattern I saw that isn’t currently available. I’m futzing my way through it, and it’s just not doing it for me. However, I can’t bring myself to do anything about it, so they languish in my knitting bag.
But if you think that means there hasn’t been any knitting, let me assure you that’s not the case. Currently, it seems my mind has turned to hats.
These are for a local photographer to use as props. I’ve made two more pixie hats and found several other cute possibilities. Today I made a hat in two hours. Let’s see socks compete with that.
I’m sure the sock mojo will come back. If it can fight its way past the soap-making and weaving.
