The Last Socks

The last socks of 2006. I went over to Teri-Kay's last night to watch cable tv and knit. She finished a Knitting Pure & Simple cardigan in Lamb's Pride Bulky and I had an epiphany. I want a simple, easy to knit, basic but not bulky cardigan. I have my swatch of Lamb's Pride Worsted drying now and tomorrow I plan to cast on my top down, Knitting Pure & Simple Cardigan. So no more socks until 2007!

Tried to get a picture of Sela in the hat and sweater her mom knit in Knitting for Baby. Sela was not interested in modelling.

Check out this exhibition of Elizabeth Zimmermann's knitting. Truly inspiring.

Goood Gawd, woman! How may pairs of handknit socks can one woman own? You have officially reached your limit and all future socks must be immediately forwarded to me!

Merry Christmas, Cate!

I'm with vamanta. Totally. I love all your socks and still want to know how many pairs you made this year.

I am working on the second of a pair I started a while back and hoping (determined) to finish before 2007. That will make a total of 3 1/2 pairs finished this year.

Merry Christmas to you, Cate!

That is one precious baby, and quite stylish, too. Have a Merry Christmas, Cate.

How do you manage to get past the "second sock syndrome"? I just cast on for sock #2 and I'm already bored!

Well, one of the pairs of socks (the ones that are knit from the yarn that is supposed to make your skin all soft) came to me (nyah, nyah, nyah!) yesterday as an early christmas prezzie. Thank you, Cys!
