Socks, socks, socks....socks everywhere! I just finished knitting up a pair of socks...well, let's just say a pair of socks that I started knitting 'a very long time ago'. Nothing special, just a 'Plain Jane' pair of socks! I do love how you can knit just a 'Plain Jane' pair of socks, but that the yarn magically turns them into something special and interesting. At each stitch of the needle new images appear because of the beautiful, magical yarn that is available these days.
I'm on a mission to complete some of the started, but yet finished projects hanging around my office. Do any of you have any unfinished projects? Come on....I know you do? Isn't that the motto of a 'crafting artist'? I'm not sure how far I will get, there are a few sitting around! The unfinished beanie for hubby, the unfinished poncho I started last winter! The unfinished quilt that I started for dear daughter many a moon ago. There's a bag or two of yarn stashed away for sweaters that will probably be out of date by the time they are knitted up. And...there's the flowers that need to be made into bridesmaid bouquets for my daughter-in-laws very dear friend.
This leads me to the basket of unused sock yarn that I have accumulated. I seem to be unable to stop collecting sock yarn. Each time I visit another store, the sock yarn is just sitting there in the corner singing my name! I wish it would not do that...the sock yarn I mean! I usually never leave a knitting store without a skein in hand! Okay, I'll say it..........I LOVE SOCK YARN! Actually, I love most any kind of yarn...but, it's sock yarn that seems to have my heart these days.
So, off I go to start another pair. Perhaps this time I'll try a wonderful new pattern that will give the socks more of a statement. I know, I know...what about all those unfinished projects awaiting my attention? Well, they will be there today, tomorrow and in the far future! For today it's the socks that has my attention and the basket full of yarn!
The never ending basket of sock yarn....look at all the pretty fibers! See those wooden sticks in the background? Those are knitting needles! Can you believe it? For those of you who know knitting...these are some big needles! Size 50 and 28" long!
It's a pretty big basket, don't you think? I think the blue/purple yarn up there in the corner is calling my name! It has a touch of yellow in it....yes, yes...that's the one! I think I'll start with those. Last, but not least....the newly completed 'Plain Jane' socks!
