Socks are done. Plain and simple. Wendy toe up sock. A perfect goto pattern, I don't have to think- just knit. Socks are a favorite knit for me during summer- they are fast and don't end up as a big blanket over my knees in the heat - like a cardi. I think socks are wonderful for stash and leftover yarns. Some of my favorites are just stripes in different colors. Knitting in my life is actually not about the " something " that is on my needles, it's about the peace I feel when knitting. Sort of like the journey...not the destination. The rymical and repetitive motion of my hands and needles are very soothing. When I am stressed or troubled there will be alot of knitting projects around the house...a pretty good emotional clue. I always make time to knit- it helps me clear my thoughts a zen sort of thing. I have been knitting since I was 6- and would knit underneath my desk at school as long as I kept my eyes on the teacher - they didn't say much about it. Though I love to challenge myself with different patterns etc. simple is also good - practical as my mother would say.
I guess the nice thing as I process my thoughts...I end up with something warm and useful.
What does knitting mean to you?
