Hi friends! Not sure this sock it to me will be a regular feature here on the blog but I do have some things I want to say about socks so I figured I’d join in the fun 🙂 Especially since I meant to write this yesterday but then things got away from me!
While I really like the idea of making another pair of pride socks, I felt like I should focus on one of the two longstanding UFO pairs. So I spent a good chunk of Thursday – Saturday’s knitting time working on the Hermione’s Every Day Socks in some Spun Right Round yarn. I think I started these in 2016! The big issue here was definitely the yarn barf, I think my ball winder broke shortly after winding this skein, and you could tell it was on its way out. I had to cut out a 10g chunk of yarn and reattach it later on because it was so incredibly tangled that I just couldn’t do anything with it. I was maybe an inch past the heel on the first sock, and now I’m just at about that point in the second.
I was sort of hoping to finish these this weekend, but I got distracted by a new test knit. I stumbled across the “activity” feature on Ravelry – is this a new thing or just something I hadn’t noticed before?? I was taking a quick look and noticed a new test knit for socks that looked really nice, so I started those. They are called the Wispy Crown socks and it’s a really cool pattern.
Back at work this week, sigh. I was really able to disconnect and step aside from work. On Friday I went to the beach with a friend, and yesterday we had lunch with my parents for Father’s Day, then my mom had organized a “drive by party” with some friends and family for my birthday. It was really nice but very hot! Have a good week everyone!
