Three days. Everyone (who doesn’t knit) asks me how long it takes to knit a sock, and now I know: three days. Oh sure, you knitters know there are too many variables to give an honest answer to that, but three days sounds as good as anything else I’ve used before. I’ve been working on my latest socks exclusively for the last couple of weeks, and I’m happy to report that the first pair is done! These are for the boy, who is very slender but has long feet, and his homework is to wear them for a day and then wash them just as he washes all his other clothes. We’ll see how that turns out!
As for the purple pair, I’m midway through the foot of the second shortie sock and aim to be done by the end of the week. The yarn is Saucon Sock by Kraemer Yarns and I’ll be writing a review once the boy and I have both had a chance to wear and wash our socks. No photo of the purple sock today; instead I’ll show you what arrived in my mail yesterday. Behold, it is gorgeous!
Yes, again my Instagram hobby meant a new project bag entered my life. This is a hobo bag from Joji and Co. and I adore it all, from the soft suede to the hot pink color to the tiny holes for enamel pins on the front pocket. If you’re familiar with her bags, you know that they do periodic updates that sell out super fast — like within 10-15 minutes at times. That strategy totally feeds into my competitive nature and removes all common sense and willpower. Honestly, I’m okay with it at the moment. I mean, look at it! But now that I have one, I can totally resist more. At least for now. Until next time, anyway.
I am jealous of the Joji bag. I have been trying to avoid getting one, but they are so pretty I don’t know how long my willpower will last.
I’m kind of afraid to use it, though– I don’t want it to get dirty or messed up!
Your socks look great! And that is a gorgeous bag -Wow! I have purposely not looked at them, because I don’t need any more project bags. But I might need that one! And I love the holes for the enamel pins – that is such a cute idea 🙂
Ugh, I know! I think I might have bought more project bags than yarn during quarantine, and I have nowhere to go with them!
Guess you’ll have to get some yarn to put in them! 😉
Three days seems fast to me. I love the socks. Great color!
It IS fast! That included a weekend with plenty of knitting time, and no knitting on other projects. Definitely not typical.
That’s a fun bag! I was wondering about the holes in the front pocket, so thank you for explaining!
Yes, a great way to put two obsessions together!
My pins are all in shadowboxes (and I’m running out of room). But I’m going to resist buying any more storage things, because then I’d just buy even MORE pins! 😀
That bag is GORGEOUS!!
Aw man I want to stroke that bag. I cannot resist suede! It’s such a beautiful colour as well, totally impossible to resist.
I know! It likes to sit next to me so I can pet it.
