Thorn In My Side Socks

Don’t you hate when finish one of those thorn in the side projects. Me, too. May I present the Thorn In My Side socks!

Also known as the Traveler’s Stockings from Knitting on the Road. I have a feeling that I am going to love wearing these socks. Please beat me if I ever contemplate socks on size 2mm needles again.

I am now officially back to knitting normalcy. There is one pair of socks on the needles and one big project. And I might just finish the big project in the next couple days. It is so nice to be finishing some long term projects.

Since summer is pretty well here, it is time to talk Christmas knitting. A month or so ago, I had a stroke of genius. I am going to finish up last year’s teddy bears and the dratted rabbit for Christmas this year. I want to start my Christmas projects this summer so I don’t find myself stressing like last year. I was such a slacker last year. It is so much better to do things like that at your leisure. Most of us get these grand delusions about what great things we will make for our near and dear. For me, it satisfies my inner planner. I love planning projects.


I just bought that book so I'll have to check that pattern out...

Great picture header and great socks. I'm so jealous that you're so on the ball already with your Christmas knitting planning.

I love the socks! And they are such a great color, you will be able to wear them a lot.

Bravo! on working on your Christmas projects already. I am not good at long term things - I am too impatient. If I finish something, I want to give it to the person already!
