Working on goals...believe it or not

I want to knit three pairs of socks this year. Progress is slow but steady. Perhaps because I chose a pattern that requires minimum attention for the first pair. Those are easy to mess up if you run your mouth while knitting -- like I do.

Let me introduce my "Vanilla Lattes" in reliable Patons Kroy Socks yarn (75% SW wool, %25 nylon). At $2 per skein, on clearance, I can almost ignore how boring the color is. Ravelry project page here.


I know these socks will not qualify me for the world socks championships. But, I am happy with how they look and feel on my feet. I am now looking for the plainest vanilla socks pattern for socks no. two. Can't wait to use my vibrant Lorna's Laces Sheperd Sock Multi in Black Purl.

    1. They are super squishy :-) I would love to have a drawer full of socks, with plenty of options -- color wise--so I can wear them depending on my mood :-)

  5. You can't go wrong with a nice, simple pair of rustic socks. They will get you through many a cold night.

    1. That is very true, Brandy. Will start referring to them as my rustic, classic, comfy pair of socks :-)

  6. It's good to be working on your goals! I also tend to mess up whenever a pattern calls for too little of my attention. But luckily these came out great :)

    1. I can't wait to cast on the next pair. I've also started spinning for a sweater (or at least a big project). So, yes, it feels good to be working on goals :-) Thanks for stopping by!
