Once Upon a Sock: March edition

It’s the first Thursday of the month, so let’s talk socks — I’ve got sock knitting past, present, and future to share today!

First up, Mr. N’s Smooth Operators, which I finished mid-February, the night before I left California … so I was able to give them to Mr. N before I left.

Thursday Sockalong: Smooth Operators!

It’s Thursday???  How did that happen!

I had a lovely weekend at my parents’, then came back to Philadelphia to a half unpacked apartment and the start of a new academic year at a new institution.  So the last few days have been hectic.   But this afternoon, I cleared off a corner of my increasingly buried kitchen table, made a pot of tea, knit a few rows of my new socks (Susan B. Anderson’s Smooth Operators), and snapped a picture:

Thursday Sockalong: Hermione Socks, At Last

Happy Thursday friends!

It’s been quiet around these parts of late.  I’ve been in Philadelphia, sorting through boxes, wading through seas of yarn and trying to get my new apartment in order — aided by a very dear friend from Baltimore who helped me get it all done!  I’ve been without internet in the place, so hopping on here has been hard!

After two days of unpacking, though, the place is starting to look like my own … and I’ve decamped to my parents’ house in Virginia for Labor Day weekend — yay!

But enough about me … Thursday’s all about the socks!  And I have a finished pair to show … my Hermione’s Everyday Socks are done, done, done!

Thursday Sockalong: Hermione Heel and a Walk in the Park

It’s Thursday and, friends, I have some sock progress to share!

I was all ready to write another post where I told you all about how I wasn’t making progress on my socks.  I was planning to cast on Asagi last night.  But yesterday was … a day.  And by the time I sat down with a little time to knit, I didn’t have the mental or physical energy to cast on for a new project.  So I pulled out my Hermione sock and had some therapeutic knitting time.

So I finished my first Hermione Sock on Saturday night, just before we left Baltimore at an unholy hour on Sunday morning.  As you can see above, I haven’t made much progress on the second sock!   Continue reading “Thursday Sockalong: Hermione Socks, continued”
