Finished, nonetheless.

I did not finish the socks in time. I’ve come to terms with that fact. I’ve decided that really February is a short month and doesn’t count, right? Right.

All jesting aside, I just couldn’t get it done. I didn’t have the knitting mojo for it at the beginning of the week. I did learn that I can knit a complete heel flap on the train from College Park to Tenleytown and back.

The knitting mojo was back on Wednesday with a vengeance and  I finally finished them Thursday evening. I just adore the finished pair. The colorway is a little out of the box from my typical palate, warmer I think, but that’s one of my favorite parts.

The yarn is Tempting Ewe Yarns in the Rainbow Brite colorway. It’s on their Ewe So Happy sock, which is a plump and squishy 90/10 merino/nylon. These may be the squishiest pair of socks I’ve knit. Ewe So Happy Sock comes in an over-sized skein of 125 grams. I had about 57 grams leftover after these, which is plenty to make another pair of socks with! I am thinking about making a pair for my sister-in-law, the colors remind me of her.

I decided to do a contrast toe for these and picked out a mini I had received from a friend a while back. The yarn is Countess Ablaze in Orange Fizz. I was a little afraid of running out, since I only had 6 grams of it so I did a mini contrast toe.I just knit the first three decrease rounds before adding in the orange. Normally, I’d put in the contrast for the first decrease row, but this was a cute change.

These are my fourth pair in my box o’sox. It makes me excited to be a third of the way to a full box already. I remember the year where I just couldn’t get 12 pairs done and that feeling of progression is nice. I  do just love knitting socks and it brings me joy to see them in my box. I’m considering not wearing them until next year, having a whole box of pristine new socks at the beginning of next year is awfully tempting.

My next pair is already on the needles. The yarn is from The Lemonade Shop in Sweet Sweet Candy. I’m enjoying these but also thinking about my Snowmelt shawl, the last clue is out!
