After I finished my goldfish socks, I was debating what to start next. I want to knit—several—rainbow socks for the rainbowalong next month, but I don’t want to cast them on until after Feb. 1st to qualify for the Grocery Girls sock bash. I waffled over starting a new sock, wondering if I could finish it before the end of the month. I don’t have to, of course, but I think my preference is to be sock-monogamous. So, I pulled out a project bag from the shelf of forgotten project bags. Inside was a ball of yarn, a 3.25 mm circular needle, and this:
Well, there you go, I thought, I’ll cast on the second sock and that will give me something to satisfy the sock craving for the rest of the month. And then, the next day, this happened:
I couldn’t help it. I felt compelled like a madwoman to finish it. It took nearly no time, being knit out of DK weight, but boy did I love watching it fall off the needles. The pattern is the Spree Socks by Kemper Wray and I highly recommend it. I used Date Night on sparkle DK by The Lemonade Shop.
Finishing this sock made me feel like a sock powerhouse, so I cast on another pair for January. I am in love with them. The yellow contrast makes me smile every time I look at it. I’m planning to do afterthought heels, so I’m up to one tube plus the second cuff.
I also started a cross stitch project, but that’s a whole other post in the making.
