For my birthday this week, I got a few knitting pretties! First, I got a gift card & I purchased 2-at-a-Time Socks by Melissa Morgan Oakes. Because of my “Short Attention Span Theater” (also known as ADD), I’ve never been much of a sock knitter, but I do enjoy them, and knitting two at once is a stroke of genius for ADDers like me! I’m looking forward to checking out her companion tome, Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks.
While waiting for the amazing Gunilla to fix me up at my Knit Doctor appointment at GPY, I got to schmooze with one of my very favorite people, and spent my birthday discount on Nature’s Wrapture. Soooooo many little pretties to knit!! I rarely knit for myself (and the one thing actually for me on the needles, I left at the kids’ homeschool choir class! Only a few more days until I get it back!)
I’ve knit socks before…just never 2 of the same one (also known as a pair, I believe!). Thus, last night at Guild, I finished Sock #2 of this pretty little set.
Interesting knitting irony: I made them for hubby’s birthday (which is tomorrow), but he ran around this morning saying he could not find socks (I guess I should be doing more laundry than knitting…???). Anyhoo, I whipped these babies out, and sent one happy hubby off to work in style!
Yarn: Colinette “Jitterbug” in Oyster Blush
(1 skein, with less than a yard left over! Woot!) Needles: US size 2 (toes, US size 1)
