They be Fightin’ Words.
(Hand knitted with Cephalopod Yarn’s Bugga, very small needles and patience.)
My next pair may be rainbow coloured.
Socks are my favorite thing to knit, especially for other people. I think they’re the most caring thing you can knit for someone because you’ll spend up to weeks working intricate cables into them that’ll be destroyed in a year or two because your person wore them to bits. And it’s okay because you’ll just make them another pair and holey socks mean that they were loved.
Finished binding off with like a foot of yarn leftover! Boom. 👊

The return of the evenstar! I keep picking this up and putting it down. I want to get it done before my mom’s birthday in December, so it is now officially my #1 goal.
I’m sensing a theme here…
In December 2012, I joined a mystery KAL for Christmas-themed colorwork socks. I can’t remember exactly what happened, but needless to say, I didn’t finish these in time for Christmas. There’s four clues in total, and when I picked them up again last December, I was already 3/4 done with Clue 3. A few nights of knitting and voilà, new socks for Christmas!
