On to it's mate
Last night I finished my sock and actually started it's mate. I hope the second one goes as well as the first one. I'm going to look into knitting both at the same time again. I tried it once and I was a mess. LOL. Maybe now that I'm use to knitting socks on circulars I'll be a little more calm. ;-) I really miss knitting socks. I have a ton of sock yarn so now that I'm back on the sock path I can use up some of my stash.
One of my friends at coffee Saturday asked me why I was making socks in the summer, since I'm either barefoot or in my Birks, and I told her that 1. I will wear them in the Fall and Winter and 2. I just like knitting socks. Well that got me thinking about my knitting and what I make and when I make it. Are you a "seasonal" knitter or do you knit what you want when you want it, and if it falls into the right season, that's cool? I don't think in the 40+ years that I've been knitting that I ever purposely knitted according to the season. Go figure. LOL.
