On a knitting bender
Finally in the mood to knit for the first time in years. Almost 2 years ago I promised to make sock tops to wear on/over the top of boots to go with a kilt for a friend. I hate knitting on demand! I just can't do it. In exchange he sent me a gc to my favorite online store, The Loopy Ewe. I never even looked at the gc because I never really did the project. I started it then promptly set it aside. For almost two years. The knitting bug hit me in the beginning of December. I started a pair of socks out of my Wicked yarn following the On Hold pattern out of my Wendy Johnson book. Unfortunately all the patterns in that book are for bigger feet and even though I tried adjusting to fit my feet better they were still coming out way too wide. So on December 25th I frogged them. How sad. Tumbleweed Yarn, Aurora Self-Striping Sidewalk Sand. BEAUTIFUL!! I can't wait until it gets here! Of course, then I have to still finish these kilt sock tops and my wicked socks.
