|Last season's "Girlfriend Socks"|
Three patterns in 6 days is pretty fast, and yet I'm feeling a little down. I set a goal for myself, and I missed it. (Kind of like the 10 pounds I was going to lose two years ago...) The good news is I really like these designs! My eldest child insists that she's at her most creative when she's under serious time constraints. I've always had my doubts. There is something to it, though. Designing on adrenaline is a unique experience. It's not going to become a habit (if I can help it) but it's good to know I can handle it. I'm sorry I can't share the designs here, but the yarn manufacturer (Holiday Yarns) will have them available soon enough.
Which brings us to the "Super Secret Sock Design Project". Socks are there own universe, far different from my usual mittens, blankets and children's clothes. They're also addictive, as any sock knitter will tell you. There's very little as lovely as slipping on a pair of hand knitted socks that fit you perfectly. It's a cool opportunity to make sock pattens to share! The yarns are inspiring, and I can't wait to see where this project takes me.
