Progress Post

I'm planning on finishing up that new pair of socks for my friend Annie this weekend. I did return the repaired pair to her because I was so excited to have actually pulled that off.


I have lost the ball band on this yarn, but it's a bit thicker than my usual stuff. It's sturdy and will be good for her padding around her big kitchen with a cup of tea and a laptop going and fresh granola baking. (Yeah, she's that kind of lady. Her 3 kids have a hot breakfast every morning and remind me to tell you how we met over her Martha Stewart Syle Homemade Kale chips some day ...).

Anyways. I love my double point needles for sock knitting. I like how they prop up the sock as if it's shaping up around an invisible leg, but I have had a hard time NOT knitting socks with the circulars these days. It feels faster. Also I feel like I'm constantly shoving my knitting inside a bag in a hurry and I seem to lose less stitches with the circulars. I know I have some point protectors ... somewhere, but that is the problem; they are somewhere, but where, I do not know.


I'm feeling really monogamous now so I'm pretty sure I will finish off this pair of socks before I cast on for a Gramps cardigan. Very truthfully, I really need to organize my knitting gear. I love my stuff, but it's a hot mess right now.

How's your knitting gear? Did you manage a spring clean?
