Well, it had to happen sometime. I have never actually worn out any of my handknit socks – until today. One of my Heart of Sharkness socks wore right through! I didn’t notice until I went to wash them today and saw this. I thought about trying to darn them, but it’s a pretty broad… Continue reading Finally Lost One
First thing first – my Haunted socks are done! The original intent was to make these much longer socks – maybe even knee length. But in the end I just couldn’t face making them any longer. Well, that just means I have pretty much of this yarn leftover, which will be pretty great for something!… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Haunted and Iceland
Nothing that dramatic is happening with the DH’s socks. I turned the heels (YAY!) and am proceeding up the legs, so that’s good. However, exciting and dramatic things are being observed in real actual black holes out in space! You can read about it here (on Nature.com) or here (on the Weather Channel). I’d say… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Black Holes Colliding
The socks continue. There’s a bit more of them than there was the last time I posted about them, though not as much as I had hoped there would be. I was focusing on a different project this weekend, which I will post more about tomorrow! Are you working on any socks? If so, how… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Black Hole Socks Continue

Next, a project going not so well – Black Hole Socks So, I have to start them again. I miscalculated on the stitch count, and they were just… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs!
The Shark Attach 3D socks are coming along pretty well! Last week they were my travel time knitting, and there was airport and flight time aplenty to work on them. Fairbanks is a shorter flight, but around the same amount of time in the airports, so we’ll see how much gets added on this week… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Wonder Woman socks are complete! The yarn for these socks is the Wonder Woman self-striping colorway by Turtlepurl. In addition to the one linked above, they do have this same colorway with a gold mini-skein for toes and heels, which would save the striping awkwardness I have here 🙂 I didn’t have a pattern, but… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
DH had cataract surgery this morning, which meant I had a good couple hours in various waiting rooms today. He came through it just fine and so far it seems to have gone really well. And I got a couple inches done on my socks! I tried to get a picture of them in the… Continue reading Waiting
