Socks and Spring Break
My March socks for the Sock a Month Knitalong.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces in Lorikeet.
Pattern: Garter stitch rib from Sensational Knitted Socks.
Needles: US size 1
I knit these for my daughter Emma and she loves them. Everytime she wears them she dances around saying 'happy feet, happy feet'. Next up are a pair of Jaywalkers for me and a pair of waffle rib knit with Koigu for Kate - so far I have one of each pair done.
Spring Break is here and I'm sick. Really sick. Sick for way too long. We had to cancel our trip to Idaho for this week, so it's me and two really rambunctious girls cooped up in the house for the next six days. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. We'll see what she says. Hopefully she can do something about this vicious cough and the gunk that keeps surging up from my chest. In the meantime, I'm sticking to very small, very simple knitting projects (dishcloths, experimental blanket swatches, etc.) and trying desperately to make it through the final four days of my 30 poems in 30 days.
