Even I was starting to wonder if I’d ever knit again. It seems so long since I had a actual “project in progress” – sure, there are plenty of things lingering on the needles, but I’m not kidding anybody, I haven’t been working on them. I joined Sockapalooza 4, but was having trouble finding the right pattern, couldn’t decide on yarn. I thought maybe I would be inspired during the trip, but managed to keep too busy to do much about it. I wanted my pal’s socks to be special, a touch fancy perhaps. “You’ll have plenty of time,” Andy kept saying, “You can knock out a pair of socks in less than a week, I’d bet.”
So I finally decided on a pattern; after seeing so many beautiful versions of Loksins! I just had to make a pair. The yarn was a natural choice after that, Shelridge Farm Soft Touch Ultra in Heathered Loganberry. (Ok, so having a very limited stash at the moment made it easier to decide…)
I must say that I might have the first sock completed by now if it weren’t for a little website called Ravelry… (yes, I’m Loribird over there too, pop over and say hi!) I’ve never been so addicted to the web in my life. If you’re on the waiting list, be patient, it’s totally worth it; if you aren’t on the sign-up list yet, what are you waiting for???
