I knit a lot of socks. Some pairs seem to take longer than others to knit. Some fly off of the needles. This pair of socks falls solidly in the takes longer to knit category. It’s not the yarn (Madeline Tosh Sock in the Home colorway). I love the yarn. It is knitting up beautifully. It’s not the pattern, a my vanilla socks are stockinette, so that flies under normal circumstances.
I don’t think the socks are dragging because of the project. I think they are dragging because of the weather. I’m soaking up as much sun as I can this spring, which means we are on the go much more than normal. I just haven’t had as much time to knit…
…but I still managed to cast on a hat. It’s a wool hat for myself, just in time for 70 degree days. It’s the Gretel Tam I knit earlier this year for a friend. I’m knitting it for myself this time with some beautiful light brown bluefaced Leicester. I am not sure I have enough yarn, so I might be tearing it all out and trying another hat pattern. It’s a fun hat to knit, and I adore the yarn, so if I have to tear it out it’s not the worst thing in the world.
Are you enjoying nice weather where you live? Is it interfering with your craft production?
