My Nutkins are done and I'm very pleased. The pattern is simple but striking, and the resulting socks look comfortable and wearable. And they're done weeks before the birthday! Shocking! You see, I'm the sort who leaves things to the last minute, underestimates what's involved and then bites off way more than I can chew.
Picture me desperately knitting a fair isle yoke on Christmas eve.
Picture me frantically sewing sweater seams in a Tim Hortons 10 minutes away from a friend's house.
Looking back there were years when Mom would pitch in to help save me from whatever I've gotten myself into. But these socks are done well ahead and I'm trying really, really hard not to fall into the trap of thinking that I could or should knit something more for the birthday.
