I’ve written before about have “second sock syndrome”, where after I finish knitting the first sock I don’t want to do it all over again to knit the second sock…it’s boring. I want to go onto something else.
So when I started knitting this pair of socks in May I used the technique of two socks at a time using two circular needles. I worked on them on and off and finally finished them yesterday.
Now that I have the basics down using this light colored wool yarn, I can now do some more fun designs in bold colors. I like the look of socks with different colors for the toe, body, heel and cuff, so I might try that next. But I found the wool socks on the kitchen tile are pretty slick, so I can’t use them when I’m working in the kitchen.
I made a batch of green chili using roasted Hatch chiles I got in Colorado. Well, it came out waaaaay too hot and after trying all the ways to reduce the heat (added brown sugar, yogurt, even a potato) I finally threw it out. Next time I’ll check how hot the chiles are before adding five of them.
Remember, you are loved.
