I look down and what should I see?
Two finished socks staring up at me!
I finished all the knitting on the second sock last night and this morning I grafted the toes together and weaved in all the ends. I got them done just in time for January Socktopia. These would have been done much more quickly had I not procrastinated starting the second one. It is amazing how much more quickly and easily the second sock went.
Yarn: Lang Yarn's Jawoll Jacquard, Color: 82.0155
Pattern: Silver's Sock Class
Theme: Celebrate Good Times - because your first pair of socks is always cause for a celebration!
Because you can see her in my sock picture I figured I'd introduce you to my new friend Sophia.
You see right before Christmas D asked me for suggestions for Christmas presents because he wanted to get me a little more than he'd already picked up. I threw out a few ideas and one of them was for him to take me to Build-a-Bear because I had never been. He liked that idea and said he would. Well come Christmas I found out he'd already gotten me plenty of presents so when he forgot about Build-a-Bear I didn't say anything. A few weeks later he remembered saying "Oh no! We forgot to take you to build a bear!". I told him it was alright and he could save the idea for another time, or use it as a surprise. Well this weekend when he picked me up to take me home he started going the wrong way, and to my surprise we ended up at build a bear.
Tomorrow Feburary begins which brings me to thoughts about the new socktopia themes! If I could make any socks I wanted I'd make these:
I love this pattern and think the socks look very romantic but the truth is they are too complicated for me right now. I'm sure I could do them with time, effort and many tears of frustration but that just doesn't seem like much fun.
I have decided to go with the box of chocolate theme and will be doing these in browns:
If I finish the first pair early enough to make a second I'd like to make these for the short and sweet theme:
The future sock patterns are Vogue Knitting on the Go: Socks Two. The book is small, easy to carry and has quite a few cute patterns. The three I posted are my favorite.
