This week has been a big one for me, I’ve been working on my first real attempt to lose weight and increase my fitness/health level in many years. However, that has meant I haven’t had a whole lot of time for fiber crafting this week. Today, however I decided to make knitting (and getting caught up on my dishes) the priority today.
I’ve had the Felici Sport socks that you see in the top photo on the needle since the beginning of October and they are starting to annoy me. By lunchtime I had turned both short-row heels and now I’m working my way up the legs. I’m hoping to have them done before the end of the weekend.
I’m really quite excited to get these socks done. Mostly because I want to wear them, but also because there is no way I’m going to make my goal of 15 pairs of socks this year if I don’t finish a pair soon. I haven’t finished a pair yet this year, and working on the pair today I’m wondering why. I LOVE knitting socks, I get real satisfaction from knitting socks and living in Ontario there is rarely a time when you can’t wear socks (even in July and August you might need to wear socks to bed). Also, they wear out and get lost, which means that you can keep making them forever (and even if you have too many of them, they really don’t take up much space in your drawer).
So, overall it’s been a delightful Saturday and I still have a few more hours of knitting, and watching old episodes of Psych, ahead of me yet.
