My husband Phil seems to think I'm a fast knitter... I really don't consider myself to be that fast, mostly because I'm usually frustrated by the little time I actually get to spend knitting. I always feel like, say, if I could knit for an ENTIRE DAY, then we'd see some measurable progress!
Still, I guess I must be fast enough, because the finished objects keep piling up, and the gift box now has TWO pairs of socks in it. I give you the latest socks to make it off the needles, Nancy Bush's Conwy socks, from Knitting on the Road.
I'm glad they're done. Knitting teensy cables with nearly black yarn was NOT a good idea! And the yarn itself, KnitPicks Stroll, was a bit of a pain to work with, I found it very splitty. Anyway, the important thing is that they've been put away in the gift box for now, and I hope they'll be loved by their future owner, because I'm never making another pair of these again!!!
Oddly enough, a side-effect of wanting desperately to be done with these socks over the past 2 weeks has been dreaming about newer, better, funner socks to knit. I've become enamoured with sock knitting once more!
This is the progress as of yesterday afternoon on my first Cookie A. sock pattern, Nebula. I cast on for this sock on Tuesday night, and I've just turned the heel.... but I'm not fast, right?
Happy Knitting Everyone!
