Once Upon a Sock, January Edition

Hi friends! And happy new year!

Wow, how is it the first Thursday of the month again, let alone of 2018!

I’m still traveling in the US, so this will be quick, but I didn’t want to miss the first sock post of the new year!  And luckily, I have some new socks to share!

Arnside Ramble

Hi friends!  Another week’s galloping by faster than I can believe — how is it Tuesday evening already!?

Though it’s almost a distant memory, we had a friend visiting over the weekend and took advantage of having rented a car to retrieve him from the airport to take another ramble in the area!  There’s so much prettiness to explore here — this weekend was another reminder that, if we do get a car in the not too distant future, it would open up a nice world of weekend adventuring!

Once Upon a Sock: October Edition

Well, yesterday completely slipped me by!

If you’ve been reading along here for awhile, you’ll know that the first Thursday of the month is sock time!  I didn’t realize until late yesterday that it had already come around again (I blame my cold!)

This morning, as I sipped my coffee and knit, as is my wont, I was thinking what a shame it was that I hadn’t done any sock knitting all month, and that I’d have to miss this month’s update … all the while I was knitting on a sock! Doh!

Once Upon a Sock: September Edition

Wow, it’s really September, huh?  August feels a bit like a lost month to me.

With all the moving malarkey, knitting time has been in woefully short supply, but I am looking forward to getting back to knitting these beauties soon.  These are my Antirrhinum Socks, by Rachel Coopey, the July project for A Year of Techniques.  It’s hard to believe I started these in California … that seems a very long time ago now!
