the weather was absolutely gorgeous here today (northern England) so I thought I might as well make use of the sun for something other than cultivating my freckles. sunny day means WASH DAY!
I had an absolutely massive stash of socks awaiting washing, two sinks full.
I really like seeing the variety of the socks I’ve made. I can see:
socks made from my Christmas present, the Socksyeah! book by Rachel Coopey.
aran socks from a pattern by Emma Wright, my absolute favourite boot socks ever
socks made from yarn I dyed in a gradient
socks I cast-on on holiday, absolutely desperate to have a knitting project to do
etc etc. it reminds me of how much every knitting project is linked to a certain time and place and can bring back memories every time you look at it or wear it. You don’t get that with store-bought socks!
