At the beginning of the year, one of my friends noticed I was working on a pair of socks. She innocently asked if it was the same pair that I had been carrying around for months. When I admitted that yes, it was, she told me to just finish them already! So I did. And I wondered what had taken so long. The pattern wasn't difficult. I just had many other projects on the needles. I had finished a lot of them just not my backup socks.
Knitty, I cast on for another pair right away. Not venturing far from the celebration, I chose a pattern from knitty as well. Instead of my usual two at a time, I focused on one sock using DPNs. It flew off the needles. And I realized I need to knit plain socks all the time. The ease of the stockinette is a great compliment for my time with kiddos. I can easily pick it up and put it down. I don't lose my place in charts or forget the patterning. It was fantastic.
socks for my feet, which is no small feat in my mind (pun very much intended). And I am already casting on for another. They are very portable and small, which makes them perfect for our life out and about town. Plus socks always fit. These discoveries are too big to pass. I guess I am a sock convert.
