September of Socks!

Summer of Socks

There. The Sock of Summer is cast on. It doesn't look very summery out. In fact, it's raining.

And yes. This will undoubtedly be THE sole sock of summer. I'm hoping to really hustle and have a PAIR. Whooooo.

Huh. i have to type in the HTML codes? Linking later. I type with one, maybe two fingers on the phone. Can you guess my age? Go ahead, but just say old.

Reading: "Quiet: The Power of Introverts In a World That Can't Stop Talking". So far not much on an introvert that can't stop talking.

Summer of Socks



You knit? Really?!? :D Looks like it will be a lovely sock. I picked one with a pattern so I could aim to knit at least one repeat a day. Try to keep myself on task. Either that or I'll go all sideways and end up crocheting with a US120 hook.
Don't ask.


Carrie- Have faith. You will have a pair by summers end.

I don't even have a smartphone. But if I did, I would be a single finger typist.


I started a nice thick cotton sock in December thinking I'd be done with both by the end of January and my feet would be ever so cozy and warm. I made it to the toe on the first sock and just haven't gotten around to finishing is so of course I haven't started the second. I'm thinking maybe by November when my feet start to get cold again I will get back to it. Hope you have better luck with your socks!


Heh. I still have a monkey sock sitting unfinished in my knitting bag from, oh, 2 or 3 years ago. And it's the second sock.


I am so hopeful for at least a pair this summer. :D When they explain the talking part, would you please let me know?


Do I know you? :?


I got that book for Christmas; sadly, I do not care to read non-fiction unless it is written like fiction. Thus, I have read about one chapter so far...

My Snickets sock is proving very fiddly to knit. Cabling every other row on #2 needles -- who knew?


Gosh! You're starting a new project with each new post. I'm so proud of you and your polyamorous ways ;-)


Oh, no, I forgot about the Summer of Socks! I've already got two June KALs in the works, so if I do SOS, it will be belated. Yikes.

What yarn are you knitting with?


Sounds like my kind of book, if it ever gets to the point of the title as you mention.:<)

How are you? Long time no visit. Hope you have a summer filled with fun and great socks. Ched sends his best headbonks to Hez!


I've been seeing the introvert book everywhere, and am interested in it. Briton and I are definitely introverts, Hannah definitely an extrovert.


You are farther along with your Summer of Sock than I am. I haven't even cast on.


That's a book that sounded intriguing - how was it?


I haven't knit in so long I may not remember how. Did you get out to Treasure Island?


Ditto! How was the book? Have you listened to any of the TED Talks on introverts? Pretty interesting. FINALLY, I find out I am NORMAL. AND I have come out of hibernation. ha! And how are you??? Where are you?


It's August 14th woman.

Happy Birthday!!
