you’re surprised i’ve been posting this much, haven’t you?!? me too.
well, i have a ton to catch up on. a ton. and unfortunately, i didn’t document everything. i’ve finished a couple of pairs of socks and started a bunches of other little things (well, not too many). i’ve acquired yarn. i’m dreaming of sweater knitting (and hoping to pull through).
here’s a sock i started and finished on a trip to north carolina to visit my bff rita, baby sam and dr. brian. it’s done in the luxurious claudia fingering weight. what a dream to knit up! so soft and silky (quite the opposite of noro sock). of course, i don’t think that it will last very long considering i wear my socks to work – and i am very hard on my feet!! next time i’ll take the time to knit in reinforcing thread.
