Just Can't Wait!

I finished the Winter Solstice socks, but it's too dark to take a photo. What irony! I will post tomorrow with a photo and all particulars.

I thought I'd just take a break for a day and wait for the Knit from Stash Sock KAL to start on December 31st, but I just couldn't do it.  I decided to start a simple sock pattern, using one of my self-striping yarns. I dug around in my yarn bin and pulled out Blue Moon by Stray Cat Yarns.  A plain vanilla pattern is just too boring, but I found a nice variation on Ravelry--on the first round of each color change, slip every third stitch.

That just didn't work for me. Plain vanilla it is.

As I cast on I thought wouldn't it fun to listen to Blue Moon by The Marcels as I knit?  I found it on YouTube, here.



  1. That ball of yarn looks absolutely gorgeous. Excited to see how they look all knit up!

  2. Sometimes waiting is not necessary. You have to knit when you want to knit. :)
    These are going to be fantastic socks!
