Oh, how good it feels to knit. There had been little to no knitting while the manuscript was in progress (of course, that didn't stop me from carrying it around everwhere). But just last week, I finished up these socks for the babe - you know, to get my knitting feet (nice pun) wet again, and with a quick and happy result.
And together! Calvin made it abundantly clear when I was taking this photo that there is NO way I'm going to get away with just two pair. And so, I will now be ordering more of the Lang sock yarn in this colorway, apparently. Oh and the pattern - it's my standby of the Yankee Knitter Designs Classic Socks. I continue to print out and think about moving to a toe-up pattern, but at the moment of cast-on, I always chicken out and head for the safety of the Classic Sock pattern. I'm a toe-up wimp.
And one more, just because. Do you have any idea what kind of party ensued when I asked them to get naked, put on their socks, and stand on the table? Yup, a party to be sure. Which is good, because what else are you going to do with all this rain?
