Back with Sock Envy

Despite the lack of activity here on my blog, it’s been a busy and hectic few weeks! I packed up my little apartment in Toronto and made the move to Kingston! I couldn’t believe how much stuff I had managed to accumulate over the course of a mere two years. Surprisingly there wasn’t TOO much knitting stuff; Definitely not an impressive stash quite yet, but it’s good to have goals.

First on the agenda once I landed in Kingston was to scope out the nearest yarn shop, (of course). To be fair, I had scoped it out long before the move, but I hadn’t actually ventured in. To my delight Wooly-Tyme is just down the street! Still to be determined if its close proximity will be a good thing or a bad thing ; )

In project news, it’s a mix of progress and procrastination. I’ve started on one sleeve of my Featherweight Cardigan but I’ve stalled out on the Edwardian Boating Socks. I had such high hopes for them, but I don’t know what it is. I just can’t seem to get into these socks.

With all the slipped stitches in the pattern it takes twice as long it seems, it make good progress. I’ve only just made it to the instep, and it still seems like there’s so much more to go. I can’t even bear to think about the complete second sock to be done!

To combat the project apathy, I, like any good knitter, searched for another project to satisfy my knitting itch. Enter Wendy Knits Heart to Heart Socks. I’ve been knitting lots of socks lately, but no toe up socks and I was starting to really miss it. I love toe-up socks; it’s those first few rows were you create a toe out of nothing but a few wraps of yarn that really fascinates me. Hopefully these will hold my interest until I’m ready to get back to my Edwardian Boating Socks.

  1. Don’t know why you could stall on such Darling socks! You only have a bit left on the one. I love how the colour goes on the heal.

    What colour are you doing the Heart to Heart socks?
