I Didn't Tell You...

...I was knitting a sock. It's the Embossed Leaves Socks designed by Mona Schmidt from the Winter issue of Interweave Knits. I like knitting socks, but I never feel a great need to concentrate all my energy on finishing them on any kind of time schedule. So, sometimes I will finish a pair in a reasonable amount of time and sometimes it takes me months. With this one I've been taking my time, knitting a few rounds whenever I feel like it. However, yesterday I had the urge to knit on them all day. It's amazing how fast it goes when you do that. This is a great pattern and yarn (Koigu) and I'll share all the details later when I finish the second sock, which could be next week or next month...you just never know.

  7. They look great! I'll have to dig out that pattern. I'm the same with socks. Either I work on them nonstop until they're done, or I'll just do a row here and there, and it takes months to finish them.

  8. Oh I like those! After I get through a few tries with plain ole stockinette, I'll attempt something pretty like this!

  9. Beautiful! I'm sooo tempted to knit those socks and considered doing them for my Bloomin' Feet pal but I think I want to knit those for me. Have to make time in the knitting project queue sooner rather than later =)
