I love to knit and find myself spending more time knitting these wintry days. I try to split my free time between writing and knitting. The strange thing about knitting for me is that I haven't kept much of anything for myself. I always seem to give my creations away, because it gives me tremendous pleasure.
Then, I made and KEPT the socks above for my little self. And I discovered that wearing handmade socks is the ultimate in luxury. I even bought a pair of mules so that I could show off my cute socks. I feel special the entire time I am wearing them.
I have taken to keeping a sock in-the-making in my purse in case I get caught waiting anywhere. I simply whip out the project and get in a couple of rows. I've had the socks below in my purse for ages, and got tired of looking at them. I finally finished it this week.
