this and that

Spending the week out in Lake Tahoe and it's been very very relaxing! 

I started this pair of socks the day before we left and finished them up 2 days later. Such a rewarding knit! I'm not a huge sock knitter. I just don't find them fun to make and when I put on a shoe while wearing them, I can feel every stitch on the bottom of my foot! (Although, I have never tried cashmere!)

When I saw this pattern I thought a home sock is something I can get behind!  And these totally fit the bill.   I dug through my stash and found some Quince & Co from an earlier project.  I grabbed my needles and cast on.  They were not only fun to knit but they are fun to wear.  They are super cozy!  

Patttern:  Sunday Socks by Petite Knit
Yarn:  Quince & Co Owl 
Needle:  US 6/4.0mm
Size:  I made the 6.5"-7.5" and wear a size 8 shoe.  

My favorite Tahoe winter activity! (Instead of skiing!) Water temp 40ΒΊ Land 41ΒΊ.
In other news...

I made my 2024 calendar right before we left.  
I choose a knit from the month the previous year and use it for this years month photo.  It reminds me of past time and knits and what I was working on during that month last year.  This is my 4th or 5th year doing this and it brings me such joy!

Happy weekend, friends!

  1. Those socks do look cozy! I like a little cashmere in my socks, though they don't hold up as well as the all-wool ones. But sometimes I want to pamper my feet.

    The calendar is such a fun way to do it!

    1. Ha! I need to make some cashmere socks! Who cares if they don't hold up well... we can always make more! πŸ€©πŸ˜πŸ’œ
