I cast on my pride socks this morning, and they are flying. I decided I really want contrasting heels and toes on these socks, but I’m away from home at the moment. I popped into a big box craft store hoping to find black yarn, but all I found was cream and gray. I haven’t decided which I will use, but I’m leaning towards the gray. Or I might decide to wait until I’m home and use some scrap black I have.
It feels ridiculous to be writing about picking a color for heels on socks. It shows my privilege. People are fighting for people of color to have basic rights, like not being killed by the police, and I’m worrying if cream or gray works best as a contrast to my sparkly rainbow socks. I am committed to doing more, not just posting about what is wrong and how George Floyd was murdered. For every pair of pride socks completed during this KAL I will be donating $5 to the Southern Poverty Law Center. I highly encourage you to join me if you are able.
I know there is so much love and support in this knitting blogging community. Let’s do our part to show others the love too.
