Sorry for the long radio silence. I was on a long-ish vacation to Wisconsin, which I’ll talk about more later this week. But while I was gone, I did manage to get a project finished – a pair of socks for my DH. I didn’t really use a pattern – just a plain vanilla sock… Continue reading I’m Back – and So Is My Sock Model
DH’s latest pair of socks is done! I didn’t use a pattern really, more just a method. The yarn is some Cloudborn sock yarn left over from when Craftsy used to sell supplies. DH is happy with them and says they fit just right, so I’m happy 🙂 Now I’m taking a bit of a… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday

I am SO close to finishing DH’s socks! SO CLOSE! But now it’s 11 pm and I have to go to work tomorrow, and it’s just not happening tonight. Tomorrow is another day! Do you ever stay up late trying to finish things for no good reason at all?
