Post-Christmas knitting therapy

You may recall the tragedy of the two-sized socks.  If not, a little reminder of their tragic circumstance.

I re-cast them onto smaller needles and lo & behold, they were too small.  Back onto the correct needles and a firmer eye on gauge and I give you two equal sized socks that an average human (we believe) teenager can wear.  The proof that they are loved?  She modelled them!

I even made her model them side by side to prove that they are, in fact, the same size (to myself).

Since casting these babies off and wrapping them under the tree, I have been a knitting maniac!  It is odd how knitting on a deadline makes me feel like I can’t knit fast enough, and once deadlines are lifted, knitting is quick and easy.

I have knit a nice new plain pair of socks…

(P.S. Don’t let anyone tell you that photographing your own feet is easy.  They lie.)

The “Take me to New York” shrug for my daughter has also finally been cast on and off, though I cannot photograph for you at this time as I have no models, and can only imagine how taking a photo of myself in a shrug would go…suffice to say it is not my style, ergo will be the delight of 15 year olds everywhere.

I have two new items on the needles and received a box of yarn from Elann last night.   As such, I am likely the only person in town delighted to see that a blizzard has made our street impassable and we must wait for a plow before we can take to the streets.   Off to make coffee and enjoy a few rows on this neckwarmer…seems we’re going to need them!
