I have a serious problem because all I want to knit on is socks. I’m not sure if it’s because they are small, quick, and mindless, but I want socks in every color. I am forcing myself to work on my Emiliana shawl so I can wear it soon, but the socks are calling my name. The Emiliana shawl is made out of O-wool that I purchased at Rhinebeck. The colorways are Pasture Rose and Gorge. I think the neutrals will work well with many outfits. Now onto the socks! Both socks are just vanilla socks because I wanted the colors of the yarn to shine. The blue/green sock is made of yarn that I received in a swap that was organized by Melody of the Mandarines podcast. My swap partner is from Nova Scotia and she sent me local yarn that is the color of the Nova Scotian tartan. The color is amazing! The yarn is from Fleece Artist and it’s so plump and round. I will definitely be getting more yarn from them. The other sock is made from yarn that I dyed called Nebula. It is on a stellina base and it’s one of my favorite colorways to dye.
I am still slowly working my way through the Making and Taproot magazines. I really like to take my time and read all of the articles. With the holidays I didn’t get much reading done because there were games to be played and cookies to be baked.
