The last few days I’ve felt the urge to knit. I haven’t but I have been thinking about it. During my daily trip through Ravelry I got looking at my UFOs. That led me to the yarn you see above. This yarn has a story.
This yarn was purchased as part of the Steampunkery Sock kit in November of 2011. Yes, 2011. If you type Steampunkery in the search box on this blog you’ll find about 15 posts where this yarn and pattern have been discussed. I’m not sure how many times I’ve cast these socks on. The pattern has cables and twisted stitches and working buttons. They’re pretty epic for socks. The Let’s talk about Failure blog post has a photo from the designer if you’re interested.
So I pulled out the yarn and set it up in a project bag with my most favorite sock needles (found in the project bag this yarn was living in) and my tool bag. The plan is to cast on and give it another go. Maybe this time I’ll make it beyond the second buttonhole.
