Sock Knitting Counts, Right?

As my pal Renee pointed out, yes I am knitting socks, but that hardly counts. I can knit socks with my eyes shut. Plus, I feel naked if I don't have a pair of socks on the needles. I am a knitting addict and socks are the drug that keeps me from going into knitting withdrawal. We would all be in sheep dip if I didn't have any knitting at all.

At the same time, I'm still annoyed about that knitting disaster that was the diminishing rib cardigan and I want to cast on something with that yarn, but I still associate it with that painful knitting experience so I'm still avoiding it. Reading comics instead of looking at potential knitting patterns, making jam instead of knitting gauge swatches.

But since I'm trying to get back into the habit of blogging, I will show you this sock I have going.

It's a cheerful sock if I say so. They're going to be a Christmas gift for someone :)

Ooh, your new socks are fab! Love the color changes. As for the painful diminishing rib cardi, I say onwards and upwards. Find another sweater to knit with that yarn and fall in love with that yarn all over again!

Socks count as knitting. Always. Just like my boring dishcloths count as knitting. It's there to serve a purpose: keep the knitting monster at bay.

What's going on now?

Husband is employed. I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
