one more pair ready


When I cast on these socks I had hoped that we were done with snow and that spring had finally arrived. Clearly, winter is not done with us yet. Oh well, best not to wish my life away no matter what the weather. Maybe spring will get a better foothold next week!

The good thing is that these socks are done. March is my month for charity knitting, so I'm glad to have made a start on my knitting for the Warm Hands Network's September shipment. Much better to knit a pair or two a month through the year than try to mass produce socks in the few weeks before the shipment. Besides it's a great way to reduce the stash - there's no risk of running out of sock yarn!

Those are very pretty socks. My pet project is blankets which I do all year round.
Thank you so much for your link to Tech Knitter and her Russian yarn join. As I dislike darning-in ends even more than I do sewing up, I'll try that join out at the very next opportunity.
