The socks I finished for Dave last month decided to make their whereabouts known.
A hybrid pattern. I loved the broken rib stitch texture of Thuja but prefer my standard 48 stitch worsted weight sock template from the Yankee Knitter Classic Socks pattern.
The yarns are Lambs Pride Superwash 100% wool, worsted weight for the main part, and some Artyarns Supermerino for the toes and heels. That Lambs Pride Superwash makes an excellent sock yarn but I'm not sure I would have been able to squeeze a pair out of one skein of the Lambs Pride if I hadn't switched out for the toes/heels.
My personal theory on why these socks reappeared after being unfindable since I completed them in Colombia? I believe they took pity on me. I have so many unfinished, almost completed , troubled projects scattered around this joint that I am beside myself. A little clutter is good for creativity but I've crossed over, project-wise, into distraction.
By contrast, I visited my 22 year old nephew's apartment in NY this week. Remember when life was simpler?
