Seems like it’s been a while since I got some time to sit down and type up a proper blog post. But, it’s worth the wait, let me assure you.
Remember all those pairs of socks I was contracted to knit? In case you don’t recall, I was actually contracted to knit nine pairs of socks in May of 2010. Since then, I have been devoting a lot of knitting time to getting those churned out and sent off to their rightful owner. But, it’s all coming to an end. I am nearly finished. At last check, I had a foot of one sock and a toe of another to complete.
And, while I expect to get the toe of the second to last pair of outstanding socks done today, I do have some pics of some of the other contract pairs to tide you over.
These are Luminare, made out of Juliespins MCN 560 in Ultraviolet. These took forever to knit, because the yarn is no thicker than a heavy lace weight, but in the end, I think they are stunning and I will be sad to send them off.
These next socks were a real treat to knit. They practically flew off the needles. Knit in Bugga, which is one of my favorite yarns to knit with as it is the perfect balance between soft and sproingy, they are beautiful and functional as well. The pattern is a basic Feather & Fan, but it looks so pretty in this semi-solid.
Honestly, I can’t wait to get finished with these and send them out into the World. They have been a huge undertaking. Although, I do have to say, I was able to knit with a number of yarns I had never knit with before and that was a real plus. I now know which yarns are keepers and which yarns I will be passing on in future.
And really, it’s all about the process, right?
