As I’ve mentioned a few times recently, my Viola socks are languishing a bit. I’ve been trying to figure out why that is. I couldn’t wait to cast them on, I love the pattern, I love the yarn … but I’ve just completely stalled out on the gusset! I think part of it I’ve been distracted by other things, like nearly finishing my Arrosa shawl and starting Southwell.
But I also think part of me needs to change things up. I’ve knit a fair few pair of plain jane socks (my Droving Socks excepted!) over the past six months, and I think maybe it’s time for a little change of pace.
So instead of showing you yet another picture of my Viola socks in the same place (basically they’ve barely grown since this post), wanna help me with planning my next pair?
As you can see, Thursday sock time is back, under a slightly different guise. After some chatting amongst the group of us who blog about socks on Thursday, we’ve decided to move sock talk to a once a month format. So stop by the first Thursday of every month for some gabbing about socks!
My Tube Operators, as I’ve taken to calling them, are coming along, slowly but surely. I’ve inserted the waste yarn for my afterthought heel (the lavender strip between the pink and green stripes closest to my needle) and have been working on them here and there.
