WIP Wednesday: Hello Old Friend

I am back to knitting plain old socks again. You know how people say when they are busy that their plate is full. Well mine is pouring off the plate, over the edge of the table and puddling on the floor. But mine isn’t busy, mine is stress. Things are off the scale around here this week. It will calm down but it’s going to take a couple of weeks. So because of that I am back to plain old soothing knitting. Something that moves along mindlessly and is suddenly done. I’ll try to pull a UFO out and evaluate it for completion by the end of the month but at this point that might require too much of me.

The yarn is Crock-O-Dye in color 757. The pattern is the usual 64 sts on a size 1 1/2 needle.

    I’m sorry things are so stressful right now. I hope knitting that beautiful yarn helps to calm your days.


  5. I love knitting socks for the same reason, something to be able to zone out and just knit without having to think a great deal. I hope everything else in your life sorts itself out x

    Do you notice a difference between metal needles and wooden or bamboo? I really prefer the wooden ones, for no particular reason.

    I love mindless knitting or crocheting, great stress reliever. Though socks would add to my stress since I don’t yet know how to make them. lol Hope things improve stress wise for you.


  14. Vivianne says:

    Good choice, comfort knitting is always relaxing 🙂


  15. Take deep, deep breaths and enjoy your mindless knitting. I almost always turn to knitting to help with my Panic Monster, hopefully this will ease your stress times. Feel free to rant and if you need a sympathetic ear, let me know.
    Good luck and be well.

    Love your socks. I wish I could knit socks feeling it was not stressful .. maybe some day. Hope things get more restful for you 🙂

    Hope things settle down soon and that all will be right in your world again. “Mindless” knitting is such a good stress/tension buster. As for simple … well sometimes the simplest things are more than enough in and of themselves, yes? Besides, the colorway is absolutely brilliant.
