And the amount of knitting that this blog has worked on this last few days that is photographable, is zip nada.
It is a black sock. Just a plain black sock. I have been working on this pair for well over a year. I started it somewhere about when I found out my Sweet Thing was on the way. I always said that I would never knit another pair of black socks but it the upcoming birth of a grandaughter seemed to be right for the knitting of a second pair. It is her daddy, after all, who wanted only black socks and whose feet are not to hot to wear socks. I am on the second sock, about halfway done, on this black pair.
The project then morphed into socks for the whole family. I started a new pair in colours that her mommy likes as she was being born, and those socks are done right up to the ribbing and the afterthought heels. It was a lovely fall colours skein of yarn, oranges and greens and goldens. Pleasing with a little bit of punch.
The plan is, with the bits left over from both pairs, to knit a wee pair for my Sweet Thing. Ideally, I will get these all complete before her first birthday. Which is in just a few short days. Technically and realistically, I should have enough time. It is only the 17th and her birthday is not until the first of October so it seems like there should be time to knit half a sock, some heels and a baby pair of socks.
I just have to stick to it. There in lies my problem.
