Remember my saturday night fun sock? The sock that brought fun colors between my Christmas knitting? I finished the pair soon after Christmas and wore them on New Years Day. Which meant that I wore a new pair of handknitted sock to end and start the year(s). Perhaps a new tradition?
The socks were knit from Regia yarn (my Christmas gift from my knitting buddy Maureen); magic-loop style; toe-up using size 1 Addi's; using the Thuja pattern from Knitty. Well, actually the idea of the pattern, I still went with my normal stitches, toe & heel. The pattern was a fun and easy way to spice up sock knitting. The picture above shows my sock next to Maureen's sock. (aren't they cute?)
And here are the socks right by the pillow my mother made me for Christmas. The fabric shows different spots in the US, depicting one of my desires to travel more.
I also hope to start posting more now. My laptop is off getting fixed and I finally got the kids computer to work for me. I've still got Christmas knitting to post about! Plus more finished socks. Eventually perhaps I'll get around to knitting something besides socks this year. My brain just seems to be stuck.
