I am proud of myself for resisting the lure of a new project in the last few weeks. I really do want to finish everything in my knitting basket so that I can start new projects and have some finished items. I thought I was a process knitter – but I think I’m also a little bit product oriented – I really don’t like too much on the needles at once, and I love the feeling of finishing something. So last night, I was happy because I finally finished these socks!
How pathetic is that? Can you tell these were supposed to be Spring socks? And here I am….finished them in time for Fall! I can’t believe how long it took me to finish them. I finished the first sock in a week or so in March – and the yarn sat in the basket until last week.
I liked the pattern, and love the yarn – but I don’t like the pooling so I don’t love them as much as I would without all the pooling. But I’d recommend both the yarn and pattern – the pattern is easily memorizable, but interesting. And I love this sock yarn. I have a lot in my stash – and I hate to use it because then it is not in my stash. Emily is a wonderful dyer – and it is hard for me to resist the lure of new yarn from her shop. But these are for me, and I’ll wear them – maybe they will bring a little spring into my winter!
I bought new golf shoes yesterday after my first golf lesson! Aren’t they cute? I thought maybe the new socks would mean I can combine hobbies…but I don’t think so….
So in about a half hour, I’ll be on my way to here….
Isn’t it pretty? The gap in the middle of the distant mountains is the Deleware Water Gap. This is the seventh hole at the local course we go to – I like when someone is in front of us so I can take a minute and enjoy the scenery. I know, I know – enough of the golf stuff! Sorry – just a little obsessive about it right now….I’m sure I’ll return to being equally obsessive about knitting soon! Now back to finishing up the two other pair of socks – I think its time for the Beaded Socks to have their turn!
