Shit I am so impatient. I’ve been dying to talk about my most recent project but it was a gift so I had to keep it under wraps in case I flaked out. I know that sounds bad, but making things for people puts a lot of pressure on you to, oh, I don’t know, actually finish it. So instead, I ignored everyone for the past two weeks and knocked out a nice little pair of socks:
The pattern is Sugar Maple from the awesome book 2-at-a-time Socks FYI for mrsenglund07, I learned how to do one sock at a time on dpns and hated it. Felt inefficient and I’m too lazy to count and keep track of things more than I have to. Two at a time just seemed the easier way to do it.
Also, my mannequin leg’s name is Lorraine, after Marty McFly’s mom from Back to the Future:
It just seemed appropriate.
Happy (belated) birthday to my best friend Molly! I love you and miss you!
