Oof, the days go fast, don’t they?
It’s the first Thursday of the month again, so time to talk about socks.
So, I have a confession to make … for the first time in maybe a year, I don’t have a pair of socks on the needles!
Don’t get me wrong, I have plans … some plans I am really excited to share as they take shape. But the combination of lots of WIPs and Stage 1 Moving has not been conducive to Starting New Things. Especially if those things require a bit of thought.
So instead, I have some pictures of my finished Favorite Socks to share (as if you haven’t seen enough pictures of them in progress) (on Ravelry here)

Hi friends and happy Sunday!
It is Sunday right?

First of all, thanks for all your responses and encouragement on that pile of unfinished sweaters! Pulling those all out had me feeling a little discouraged, but chatting about it with you all got me excited to re-tackle some of those lovelies … but that’s going to have to wait just a bit as I’m in the middle of a few weeks of lots of travel!
This weekend, Mr. N and I met up in Memphis to attend the wedding of some dear friends.

When I stumbled into my kitchen this morning in pursuit of coffee, it was 58 degrees. Inside.
So let’s turn back the clock 72 hours, when I was still in sunny California, wandering around botanical gardens and taking pictures of my finished mitts.
My mitts saw some lovely orange flowers …

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.

Hi friends! As promised, I’m back with Part 2 of my #mostworn post. As a quick refresher, or if you’re just joining us, Kate of Rosalind Craft Supplies suggested a few months ago that we should celebrate our most worn knits. She nominated me to share my highly loved knits in the categories of torso, neck, and feet (you can read her whole excellent post here). Last Friday, I wrote about my #mostworn sweater. Today, I’m sharing my most worn accessories.

How’s your weekend going?
It’s been quiet around these parts — errands, laundromat (blergh!), cooking, and a little bit of knitting.
But I’m not here to tell you about what I’ve been working on at the moment — I’m here to share a finished sweater: my Rocquaine Pullover!
