When I’m not busy sewing or cooking or just taking care of Asher I like to knit. I don’t post much about that because I use ravelry to chronicle my knitting projects but I thought I would do a quick post about my knitting obsession, socks.
I started knitting eight years ago so that I could watch TV and not feel completely unproductive. Since then I’ve knit over 50 pairs of socks. I’ve kept 14 (retired 3 by wearing holes in them) and given the rest away. For the past 3 Christmases I made a pair for all my female relatives. This year I didn’t really start working on them until the beginning of November and somehow I managed to crank out a pair a week and finish 6 pairs before Christmas. My friends didn’t see me without needles in hands.

I was even able to finish up a pair of socks for myself before the end of 2011.
