I have three socks on the needles right now. Three!! That may not seem like much to some of you, but omg it’s driving me bonkers! I’m a product knitter, I like when things are done, not when they are on my needles. And three socks, two of which are dealing with some serious SSS (second sock syndrome, ya know) and I’m having heart palpitations. Repeatedly. And frequently. It’s just so wrong!
I’m also on a bit of a deadline. Family pictures are coming right up, and these are essential! It’s a pair of gorgeous lacy socks, modified Blackrose socks, which while a free pattern, isn’t downloadable, which is not my perferred method of pattern reading. It’s a four row lace repeat and for the life of me I can’t remember it! You’d think after 20 repeats I could do it in my sleep but apparently
I’m an idiot …. my babies ate my brain cells …I need more caffeine.
I did manage to finish the first one!
And did a beautiful invisible sewn bind off. Does it have a name? I have no idea, YouTube found it and the gods of YouTube are fickle.
it even fit
But of course, the universe hates me because…
Ya. That happened. That cute, adorable, snuggly puppy ball of love
hates me chewed the whole gorgeous cuff to smithereins .
Starbucks and my BFF talked me off the ledge and I did some quick triage and got the ribbing reknit. No super gorgeous bind off this time because…I just couldn’t.
I’m now up past the ankle of #2…
So of course the logical thing is to cast on a gramps sweater for my youngest, ha!
ravelry project page, knit in my groovy grapefruit colourway. Gramps sweater is also my own wool. Might introduce it as a ‘sea glass’ colourway, what do you think?
