One Down

I’ve been dividing my knitting time between the Geology Shawl and the striped socks. I managed to finish the first sock- except for kitchenering the toe and just started the second one. I am not concerning myself with making them match. It doesn’t matter one bit to me.

The other day The Husband and I went for the first good (not unpleasantly cold) walk. The ice is nearly gone from the pond. The air was crisp. We made it about 3/4ths of the way around the loop before we got to a heavily iced section. A few more warm days should melt that section. I’m really looking forward to warmer temperatures and regular walking.

    You made me feel good by saying you are not bothered about matching your socks. I have been using up leftover sock yarn to make socks for 2 of my grandchildren and have not had enough yarn to even try to make them matching. 🙂

  3. I still haven’t knitted a pair of socks with the Knit Picks Felici, but the stripes on yours are so tempting, it might be time to place an order. 💙

    We rarely get frozen ponds and lakes here, but I can remember a few seasons of ice skating on my Uncle’s frozen lake in Southern Indiana.

    I agree, socks don’t need to match, but I love when they do by accident!

    Glad you are having such good weather, and sharing it! Yesterday’s rain made a huge dent in snow and ice, today feels quite warm! (39 with a stiff breeze) Spring is really gonna get here!

    We have enjoyed finally being able to walk too! The sidewalks were finally clear yesterday, (new ice caused by all the melting from yards) so now it is safe to walk before 10 am again! Your socks look great, beautiful, even stitches!

  7. I usually make socks to match pretty nearly because it’s so easy to do. I have small feet so I don’t need to worry about yarn quantities if I have to wind off a section to get the the best starting place for the second sock. One thing that made me smile was your “3/4ths”. Here in the UK we just use “3/4” (“three quarters”). It’s the little things that make the different versions of language so interesting.

    Seeing the hard-packed snow that had turned to ice actually melt has been cause for joy ’round these parts. Every day another piece of the unpaved road leading to our driveway progresses toward dryness. One day melting snow, one day mud, one day damp, the last day dry. Sometimes having soil that is largely sand is a good thing!

    I am so sick of the cold and was shocked to wake up to snow one day this week. Thankfully today is warm enough to be outside with the dog in a bathrobe for her morning wee. Love your sock I’m in the midst of doing socks as well because I’m done with my orange jacket which I did not blog about because I was watching my grandson on Sunday and Sunday night and I always forget when he’s here. Post coming soon

    That’s a nice view of your pond. The cozy I’m reading right now has a main character whose nephew has Duck that follows him around and lays an egg now and then.
