The socks you see there have been a labor of love for me. They are knee socks made to fit me perfectly. Over the past couple of years I realized I really don't care for patterned socks. I just don't like knitting them. I love a plain vanilla sock. But they don't fit me very well because I don't have the average foot or leg. For my height, I have rather long feet. And my legs and feet are both on the skinny side. No wonder then, that when I made Susan B Anderson's How I Make Socks pattern, they were nearly falling off me.
Last summer, I bought Kate Atherley's Custom Fit Socks. I've been using it since some time last fall or summer to create a sock pattern for myself. After getting these done, I may use her charts to make myself a plain vanilla sock that is not a knee sock. We will see.
I have a few projects that need to get done, so maybe this extra knitting time I have promised myself will help with the backlog.
What else am I up to? Learning to play the guitar. Learning to do leatherwork. Closing my yarn shop on Etsy and letting the Lord guide my life more every day. I am going to plan on posting here a couple times a week about my knitting and spinning. And maybe with enough knitting, my life will get less complicated and stressed.
