It's been how long?!?

I'm not quite sure what happened, but the blogging really fell to the wayside after my last post. (Obviously!) So here we are about three and a half months later, and there's been a heck of a lot of knitting to tell you about. I won't even try to get to everything in a single post, but if I start at the beginning and move forward, I'm sure I'll catch myself up at some point.

Why don't we start with socks?

In February, I finally, finally finished the cuff of the second sock from a pair I started last summer. What had stopped me in my tracks was getting to the end of one ball of yarn, and not feeling like re-threading a bunch of beads onto the replacement ball of yarn. (You know how that is, right?)

But once I'd steeled myself for the tedious re-threading, it wasn't long before my eldest daughter had herself a really gorgeous pair of new socks:


The pattern is Just Spring, by Sharon Fuller. The yarn is Stroll Glimmer, from Knit Picks.

A few days after finishing those, I was apparently still on a socks kick, because I grabbed a 100g ball of Regia Blitz Color (colourway #02527) and made a pair of socks for my middlest:

Completed, 'in action'

And then, from the leftovers, I made another pair for my eldest:


After that, I moved onto other things...which I'll talk about in a future post. (Honest!)
