I’ve been feeling more and more like crafting these days, finishing a quilt and doing some other sewing this week. As I often do, while I wasn’t feeling so makey makey – I knit socks.
I finished up these cuties a while ago. The yarn was my sweet mom and Christmas a few years ago. All the siblings and their partners got socks – except me. I got sock yarn. Mom gets it. Anyway, the yarn is Wisodm Yarn Pix in 106 Succulent.
I’ve been an avid audiobook reader for about five years and that’s been a great pairing with my crafting life. This year I’ve been picking up physical books (via a kindle, mostly) more and more. About a month ago – I tried knitting while reading and it was like a revelation. I’ve been trying to practice and I’m getting better and better. These socks were my reading buddies all month long. It probably slows me down on both acitivites but I don’t mind. These are some good ole’ workhorse socks in Patons Kroy Socks in the Rose Brown Marl colorway. Highly recommend both yarn and book.
Speaking of moving slowly – I’m not a fast patterned sock knitter, but these are so worth it. That sweet texture is just beautiful. These are the Coast Range Socks by Lindsey Fowler of Larkspur Knits. The yarn is one of my absolute favorites – Stress Knits Yarn in Eucalyptus colorway.
And last but not least, I had to have a vanilla sock on the go in all this. After knitting Kevin’s Opal yarn socks, I had to have a pair for myself. This is the 9851 Juniper Height colorway. Fun fun fun.
Well ok, the final socks are future socks – check out this gorgeousness! This is the Moody Pumpkin sock set by Woolberry Fiber Co. It’s going to be the Grange Socks by Hygge Canyon Knits – part of the Knit + Read Circle read/knit along for Nov/Dec. We’re reading Wuthering Heights and it’s not too late to join in! It’s a pretty awesome little book and knit club.
I think that’s it. I’ve got some more exciting quilts on the way but around here – the socks ain’t gonna stop.
