So it’s been a while.
I might have fallen a little behind on the knitblogging. Like, a year and a half behind. I’m not even going to try to catch up. I have declared knitblogging amnesty, because life is insanely busy and there’s no way I could even try. But I have just moved into a wonderful new apartment (in Queens, a nice easy subway commute to my job that gives me a good chunk of knitting time during my morning ride) – with a new roommate, who is unimpressed with me and my handknits.
This is Hattie, and she has exactly zero interest in being a knitwear model. Anything that distracts me from scratching behind her ears is a Problem. (Hattie belongs to one of my roommates. Or as Hattie might put it, my roommate belongs to her.)
But look! I have finished socks!
These are entirely made up as I went along, which is why one sock is about 5 stitches bigger than the other and therefore the pooling is…well, I have no idea how to explain this pooling. I did a 2×2 rib on the cuffs and then knit the feet in stockinette. It worked out well enough, I think, for not quite remembering how many decreases I did in the gussets.
The yarn is Frolicking Feet sock yarn from Done Roving Fibers in “Copper Pennies,” and there’s just enough left to make a pair of baby booties. There will be lots of baby booties in my future as I’m going to become an aunt in the fall (!!!!!) so I need to get cracking.
I promise you will get to see all the adorable things. Really.
