socks started thursday night.
socks finished sunday afternoon.
now i’ve got happy, happy feet.
only ‘problem’ is
i’m all jazzed up with motivation,
and nothing at hand to apply it to.
perhaps the next
piece in the
indie collection with cey
or winding the swan’s island superwash
that i bought to make these yesterday morning.
or (why not?) maybe both.
thanks to julz,
and all the other ‘socks by sunday’ knitters
for lighting the fire under me. watch me burn…i mean ‘go’. watch me go.
‘happy’ taken from 15:13 in proverbs.
finds me in my jammies.
actually, this morning was ‘pajama mama’ morning at lys ‘in the loop’,
so i never got out of my mine all day. yup. that rocks.
sock-wise, i am on the final
have done maybe 2″
past the last heel row on both socks.
not at all sure i’ll make the midnight deadline tomorrow,
but i am an awful lot closer to finished socks now
than i was 2 days ago.
also, i heard a rumor this morning
that ‘socks by sunday’ might become an annual thing for the week after new year’s.
‘closer’ taken from 18:24 of proverbs.
it was with some trepidation
that i took a look at my socks in progress
early this morning, because
the light of a new day can
reveal that late night’s knitting was not as much of a ‘ta-da’
as it appeared to be when it was still late at night.
if you’re a knitter, you know what i mean.
but, this morning i awoke to the sound of plows
18″ of fluffy new snowflakes
and last night’s knitting proving to be solid (deep sigh of relief).
today’s goal: heel flaps and heel turns.
it’s just after 5pm now and i have completed both flaps.
hoping for a little quiet tonight to knit through the turns
which will leave me two full days to sail smoothly
though the arches and toes for both feet.
looking good so far.

my friend julz challenged a few of us on thursday night,
as the first big snowstorm of the year was barrelling down upon us,
to knit a pair of socks by midnight sunday.
any socks, any size, any weight yarn. only requirement = a pair.
i’m in! as i have been wanting to try ‘rye’ by tincanknits
and this is as good an excuse as any to cast on.
not much to do last night except knit, watch the snow fall, and wrap up to stay warm.
i did all three
with malabrigo rios (in playa).
by bedtime, my socks were done
(you didn’t really think i was gonna say actually ‘done’, did ya?)
from the top down through the cuffs and the ankles.
i have plans to attack the heel flaps first thing in the morning
whether we’re buried completely in snow or not
which i seriously think we could be.
‘done’ taken from 2:3 in genesis.
