Socks

I knit a lot of socks, but I don’t often add patterns or embellishments that I’d designed myself. Over years I’ve refined a pattern which I carry around in my head for a plain sock which usually forms the basis of all the socks I make. So when I finished the ‘Long long Witchy Socks’ and immediately cast on a pair of ankle socks I was slightly surprised to discover I really wanted to add a small amount of patterning.

Sometimes you just need a really long pair of knitted socks to go under your boots, enter the ‘Long long Witchy Socks’….

Sometimes it’s ok to just knit.

Sometimes you just need to knit round and round in circles when your head is foggy with grief.

Best laid plans and all that…

You know it’s been a bad week when you’re struggling to do any knitting.
