I cast on these socks on Christmas day as a little treat to myself (the yarn was a Christmas gift from
me Brandon) after a long stretch of gift knitting. It’s only my second pair of socks for myself that I’ve ever made, and they are going to fit so much better than the first pair I made, which ended up far too big. So I’m on the foot of the second sock and should be done with these in the next couple of days. I discovered yesterday, to my dismay, that one of the kids had sat on my knitting bag and my size 1 wooden knitting needles were all in shards inside the stitches. I thankfully have this one pair of size 1 circulars, but I have always knit socks on DPNs so it’s taken some getting used to. I’m enjoying it though! I still have so many upcoming projects on the brain, many little baby things I’m excited to cast on. I have some yarn leftover from these socks and may knit up a few pairs of baby socks to match for our little girl coming next month. (Ahh! Next month! That sounds so strange and sort of terrifyingly close.)
I’ve also just started reading Five for Sorrow, Ten for Joy per Ginny’s book recommendation list, in the spirit of wanting to read more fiction and more classics. I’m not sure what I think yet, not quite hooked yet but I will keep at it.
I’m so so excited that Ginny has started up this yarn along again! I’ve missed it and all of you lovely knitters out there!
