socked out


It's Friday morning and I've cast on my last pair of socks for the January shipment for the Warm Hands Network. On Sunday morning I hope to be at the post office sending a box of hand knits on it's way to Ottawa. Over the last two weeks I've knit five pairs of child's socks if you include this last pair on needles now.

Are you tired of reading about these socks? I'm inclined to think so, because truth be told, I'm tired of knitting them. To be fair, watching the stripes and jacquards express themselves as I knit kept it more interesting than it might have been. But enough's enough already. Maybe I should resolve to knit a pair or two each month throughout the year, instead of mass producing them over a couple of weeks.

I've lined up two or three quick, fun and easy projects for as soon as this last pair are done - a dishcloth, a crazy scarf and a special scarf for me. No more socks until February, at least!

I'm definitely not sick of reading about your socks , it's always fun to see other knitters work . I am sick of knitting mine though and I'm too pair behind you . The mister requested another pair for skiing so I'll just have to bear with more socks on the needles for a while longer. That doesn't auger well for the charity knts for the rest of the year . Next month hats and mittens maybe ...

PS - I don't get tired of seeing new socks either!
