It’s fairly safe to say I got the sock bug back, well and truly. Somehow I looked up yesterday and realised I have no fewer than four pairs of socks on the go at once. This is, for the last year or so, unheard of for me. And I’m knitting them all the time, at home, on the bus, out and about.
This week I’m pretty focused on the Monkey Socks. Looking great aren’t they? I’ll be finished the second one by the weekend. Lightning fast!
I felt bad on the weekend that I had nothing knitted for Sean’s birthday so I started a pair of socks in some great tweedy Trekking XXL. Love the colour changes.
And of course I have still got the ongoing Purple Wollmeise socks, which are nearing completion too.
There is another pair of socks too, which I can’t find right now (oops!). A plain stripey pair for a friend in exchange for some stuff he’s done for me. Must find those but he’s got size 11 feet and well, I’m a bit daunted about starting the second one just now!
Sometimes you’ve just gotta do what feels right and right now, socks are it. I’m committed.
I’ve also been sewing. I made a red skirt for myself some weeks ago and it just needed hemming. You can see it here – I’m wearing it today.
Alice came over for lunch and we spent some time with the chickens.
It was her first time in the coop and while she was a bit scared at first, pretty soon she was following them around with seeds in her hands offering ‘more! more!’. I think they’ll be great friends.
And I love my skirt. It’s got a zip in it – my first! I think I need more of these – very comfy for summer.
