socks of sadness

socks of sadness

Well Di has the socks of engagement. I’ve got the socks of sadness and pissed-offness (not to sound too dramatic, it just came to me in the car!). I’m finishing up my back-tack, which is coming along nicely if I do say so myself and I’m enjoying creating! All I can think of at the moment is knitting socks. Nevermind that I’ve committed to selling at my first ever craft fair in 2 weeks and need to start making, CRAP. Sock knitting is repetitive, I can just sit there and not think too much about anything. I knit at traffic lights, in my lunch break. I can just sloth on the sofa, feel a little sad and sorry for myself and knit my sock!

The details. Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Bittersweet, knitted on 2.5mm circular’s. Pattern Rib and Cable by Nancy Bush from Interweave Knits.

Obssessed with sock yarn at the moment. Handpainted sock yarn. Not a fan of Opal or similar. Love the organicness of handpainted sock yarn. Have you seen Socks that Rock yarn?? Wooow!

    Oh I’m in love with that sock pattern right now! Just wait until you get to the heel and toe. They’re SO EASY. I’m making two pair of those right now and you’re right – they’re perfect for times when you want to be productive but don’t want to think about what you’re doing – yet they’re not “plain.” STR yarn is so awesome!

    I too am obsessed with socks & sock yarn! So easy to do. STR yarn looks fabulous, I can’t wait to get my hands on some. Other fabulous handpainteds: Fleece Artist, Cherry Tree Hill, and Mountain Colors. Yummmmm.
