Well, things sure have gotten crazy! I ended up taking last week off of computer-ing to catch up on some life things (laundry, cleaning, that kind of stuff) and I’m glad that I did! We are all safe and at home now. My oldest daughter is home from school, doing digital learning days now. Which means that I am basically homeschooling, but without having to create the curriculum. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining! I have homeschooled her before so this is something that I’m comfortable with!
However, it has changed my crafting habit back to more knitting. Knitting is so relaxing. I can unwind and knit at the end of the day! I’ve been making lots of socks right now! I have lots of fingering weight yarn on hand anyway and socks are fast and fairly mindless projects. I’m trying out all the different heel types in different socks! I love the look of the after-thought heel (above) but I still want to try the German short row.
For the socks I have knitted so far, I have been using the fingering weight pattern from the Knits for Everybody book from Knit Picks. And I’m using their Felici yarn as well (they don’t have my color way anymore but they have lots of great colors!).
I picked up a couple other patterns from Ravelry, both from Tracie Millar. I grabbed the On The Porch pattern which she made free for all of us to get us through this social distancing time! And I also grabbed her Galiano Sock pattern because I want to start working on cables and this is a perfect and small project to start learning!
What are you all working on? How are you feeling through all of this?
