These are the second pair of socks I have knit for my aunty Kathy. I started knitting them in Cape Town while I was on holiday there and then I finished them back in Scotland. As she lives in South Africa I will have to wait until May to give them to her.
This next project was actually started in January but as it was made with lots of sock scraps I didn’t want to take it with me to South Africa and potentially lose something. So it got set aside and I have only recently picked it up and finished them off.
I have knit Husband so many pairs of socks that we can go two weeks inbetween sock washing days! It has begun to get to the point where husband has indicated that although he loves getting socks from me he doesn’t really need any more… long socks that is! He only has two pairs of short socks, well plus this pair makes three. As I have discussed in a previous blog post about wearing wool socks in summer, husband likes the look of short socks when he is wearing shorts.
Okay sorry for the slightly weird title! I was unsure as to what to call this series of posts. I wanted to add my project notes but although they will be mainly knitting there will be some others, I am starting with 2023 as the beginning of this year is not toooo far back, and these are the third pair of socks that I have knit for Julia.
At the end of last year I really got bitten by the Scrappy Sock knitting bug! So I asked my mom if she’d like a pair of scrappy socks. Since I finished them so close to her Birthday I landed up giving them to her as part of her Birthday present.
