I've been so busy with my various mini projects and tears... that I've neglected a part of my knitting that has been as integral as knit or purl. Perhaps you've noticed how much it's been missing from my repertoire of late. I'm talking about sock knitting of course.
I joined FB in the summer of 2007. I know by looking through my blog that I knit.a.lot.of socks.in.2007
- 2007 - 23 pairs
- 2008 - 15 pairs
- 2009 - 10 pairs
- 2010 - 8 pairs
- 2011 - 14 pairs
- 2012 - 7 pairs
- 2013 - none so far.
In fact, in 2013, I don't have any socks on the needles! So I decided to remedy this situation. I looked through my stash and found some very lovely Wollmeise in the Dragonblut colorway (purple and red mix).
I already have a recipient in mind for these socks. It's another worthy Scouting friend who constantly gives of herself and helps everywhere she goes. I think a little thank you is in order.
This is not going to be a rush. I'm on a blanket tear... but these will be on the needles. I haven't decided on a pattern yet. I think these deserve something more than a simple stockinette pattern, but I haven't determined which pattern might be best for this yarn. Any suggestions?
