Oh dear what is the matter

What IS the matter with me? Every year I have this urge to knit. To knit socks and socks only!!! 


I usually ignore the urge but this year I gave in and got a pattern and some wool. Then there was the problem of knitting needles - none fine enough to be found in this town but I suddenly thought of the charity shops and found a set of four needles that were 'just right'.

Here are the socks. Now will I ever wear them? I doubt it very much but I got that urge out of my system and hopefully it won't return for a few years!! I did enjoy knitting them but that's led to other things - more to follow another day!!

  2. I'm glad you found the right needles. The first time I had an overwhelming urge to knit socks I had to use the children's pick-up-sticks!

  3. So maybe your favorite buddy would like to wear them--not BC3, I mean the other fellow. . . . .

  5. They look great. Isn't it funny what the mind wants to do from time to time.

  7. At least one pair got them out of your system. I usually knit a pair for each family member... No pun intended, but I put my foot down this year. No socks in site!

    I know the feeling - I'm surprised it took only one pair to get it out of your system. Last year I seemed to be knitting socks until spring started sending nice, warm weather consistently. Stopped mid-sock until the urge takes over again this year. ;-)

  11. So funny! I too had the urge very strongly, till I realized since I have given all knitting stuff away I woukd need to buy needles, pattern and wool.... Just thinking about this took away the urge. Thank goodness! Must think thread...not wool!
