I’m happy with my decision to put down all the sweaters and prioritize things a little differently. Recalibrating my energy for the summer has meant focusing on stashing down by knitting hats, and getting down and dirty with my old frenemies, my colorwork socks.
They’re coming along pretty well, and I’ve tried them on a couple times and been quite pleased. I’m hoping I can wrestle the whole pattern out of the blue yarn, but at this point (both in my drive to finish these and in my resistance to buying new stuff) I am okay with sneaking in the leftovers from previous attempts to make it happen. Perhaps each sock will have a band of some nearly-identical blue around my calves so that the cuffs will end up being the same blue.
