Still Knitting

I knew some time had passed since I last shared any projects, but I hadn’t realized that it’s been more than a year.

The sad thing is, I haven’t made much in that time.

In this COVID‑era world, the effort I put toward my day job is about the extent of my creative energy. I’m still learning new things, but I’m not spending anywhere near as much of my free time reading or making.

Knitting Socks

Those socks that I wrote about in November 2020? I finished them at the end of May in 2021.

I made another pair of knit socks from June to November 2021. And I just finished the pair that I’ve been working on since November 2021:

This is the pattern Goldengrove Socks by Mindy Soucek, from the book Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn by Carol Sulcoski. The yarn is Miss Babs Putnam in the colorway Believable.

It’s a little difficult to make out the stitch pattern against the mix of colors in the yarn, especially in a photo. But it’s noticeable enough that it adds that extra touch of visual interest to the socks. They’re warm and comfortable, and I’m happy with the result.

And Knitting Sweaters

I also have a few sweaters on the needles in varying states of completion. One is a light top in a lace weight cotton/silk blend. Another is a pullover with a colorwork neckline in fingering weight Merino yarn. And the third, the yarn for which just arrived today, will be a baby gift. I’m pretty excited about that one — and it’s small enough that there's a good chance I’ll finish it before my excitement wanes.

And that means there’s a good chance that I’ll post about it!


  1. Yay! So glad to see one of your blogs and complete projects. Maybe it will give me some motivation to finish a few of my own projects, haha. Hope you are doing well! :)

    1. Hey, Lacey, it's good to hear from you! I know you'll rock those projects. 😊 We're doing well and I hope you are also.


Thank you for your comment!
