That’s the Thing About Socks:

They always come in pairs.

Nothing inspires a new project like boredom.  To me, it is all about the thought that I am doing something valuable with my time, that something is getting accomplished; that I am making something. After all, I never think I can do something I’ve never done before, until I try. This time, my undertaking was knitting a pair of socks.

Thanks to a series of helpful YouTube videos, and (rereading) the instructions to try to figure out the pattern shorthand, I finally made my very first sock… and it wasn’t until I was on the second, that it came naturally.

I have never  had more of an admiration for knits as I have now. And, there is one more man in the world with warm feet.
