Socks


I am making socks. The idea was that this would be sort of a quickie project, but what you're looking at here is a week's worth of knitting. It's going very slowly for several reasons. First, the maze pattern involves slipped stitches, ans the stripes are fair isle, both of which take me forever to do. Second, I have had many distractions that are keeping me from knitting, including a writing deadline and Thing 1 being out of school. And third, I've actually been reading some books, and I can't manage to read and knit at the same time.

Those are my excuses. In any case, I do love the pattern, and I think they will be very nifty socks whenever they're done. It's not like I'll be wearing socks for several more months anyway.

The pattern, by the way, is in Sensational Knitted Socks, and the yarn is Louet Gems Opal.

I love those socks. I have to admit I am quite lazy about the socks I make. I tend to stick to just the basics, but I love the colors and pattern on yours. I may have to stop being so lazy!

Thanks!
The pattern's actually very easy...it's just slow. For me, anyway--you probably knit faster.

That maze pattern is fantastic.
