Oh knitting, how I missed you

I have decided to pick up my pointy sticks again. It’s been more as a way to unwind, but has yet again turned into the obsession it used to be, and I can’t be happier! I knit my son a pair of socks that I finished last week as a way to keep his feet warm and comfy and that set it off. I’m hooked again.

These guys aren’t perfect, but they can be. I need to extend the foot a bit. I made them just a little too short. I was using one of his store bought socks as reference instead of him, and that clearly didn’t work out perfectly. The good thing is they were knit cuff down, so it wouldn’t take much to undo the toe, knit a few more rounds, and then knit the toe again. Heck I might even keep doing that as his foot grows, until he’s outgrown the cuff.

I also started working on McDreamy from DROPS design. I am about 5″ in and I started 3 days ago. Yup, it’s an obsession, but really I just want my child to be able to wear it before our 3 days of winter are over so I’m trying to get it done as quickly as I can.
