Just in time for the new school year, my School Socks are finished. They only took me something like eight months to complete. Eh. Whatever.
I must admit, I love having a plain pair of stockinette socks on the needles. It's really nice to be able to just grab your project bag and know you won't have to worry about counting or patterns or anything.
Even though I had to frog the original sock (due to size issues, of course) once I got some momentum with the socks, they flew off the needles. Each sock took maybe two or three days. At this rate I just may make my resolution of knitting four pairs of socks this year (I have cast on for my scrappy Wolmeise socks but have only made it past the toe). It's still too warm here to be wearing wool socks, but now I'm actually starting to look forward to fall and, dare I say, winter when I can finally start wearing some of the handknits I've amassed in the last couple of years. I am now on the lookout for shoes to wear to school that will show off my handknit socks. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in Azules and Lettuce
Began: January 17
Completed: August 22
I'd also like to mention that my two year knitaversary is coming up rather soon. Of course I'm hoping to do something fun for it but things at my house have been quite transitional lately. I ended up getting hired to a different school just this week. I know you're thinking, didn't that already happen? Well yes, and then it happened again. And this just happens to be a school district I was desperately trying to get hired into all summer. I ended up having something like five interviews and then was hired on Tuesday, the same day as kindergarten open house, and then school started Thursday. So now I'm playing a frantic game of Catch Up. My hope is to not let the blog suffer for too long but in case you start to wonder what in the world is going on, now you know.
