i knit a sock

Friday, September 13, 2019

As I mentioned, I spent 10 days out west.  As usual, I packed several knitting projects.   Before I even pack my clothes, I pack my knitting projects.  

Yarn :: ✔️
Pattern :: ✔️
Needles ::✔️
Notions ::✔️

I was packed and ready to go.  Only two projects (a pair of socks and a pair of mitts)  and feeling pretty nervous about not having enough.  But this trip was different.  I barely knit.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe just too busy?  Now that sounds ridiculous.  But maybe.  Just maybe. However, I did manage to finally complete a pair of socks.  Now, don't go thinking I knit the entire pair while away.  I've been working on this pair all summer.  In truth, I knit half of a sock.  😊
And I was pretty darn happy with that.
The pattern really is super darling.  It's from one of my Knitcrates.  May's knitcrate to be exact.
That little butterfly pattern was so much fun to knit.  And I'm happy to say, that I am wearing them right now.  Cool temps this morning ya know.  Or maybe it's the air conditioner!

Happy Friday the 13th!

  1. Love the socks. I'm a little jealous when I see people showing off their Knitcrate projects. It was fun to receive their packages but I had THE worst experience with them. Everyone else in the knitting world seems to receive beautiful yarns and patterns, but I received an open, leaking pen in one of my boxes, A smashed open box of expired hot chocolate in another, the exact same pattern in 3 different boxes... and when I'd contact them to complain, they double billed me instead of sending me usable yarn. It was SO frustrating!

    Sorry for the rant. Apparently I really am jealous! And I have a cold which is making me grumpy. I really do love the socks though. Beautiful color and a fun design.
