Every Christmas I knit a pair of socks for my nieces and nephews. It started several years ago when they were smaller and they were fewer. Now my oldest niece is wearing at least size 9 shoes and there are 9 (soon to be 10) of them.
Last year I was seriously behind and in complete denial about how bad it was. This year I feel like I’m in a slightly better position heading into the home stretch. (Denial is a place I visit frequently). I have finished one pair. And another:
A third pair is underway:
I’m past the heel holder on sock one.
I have a couple of trips this month so that ferry time will add up. There’s some work meetings that are also knitting meetings, so that will be good too. I think these two will definitely get done. I’d like to knock off a couple pair of the little boy socks as well leaving some bigger kid socks for my planned travel in November. I have other projects I need to work on at home but this is totally doable, right? (**denial**)
**I’m choosing to believe that the fact it’s already three days into the month and I’m just getting around to writing about Sock-tober is not indicative of how it will go.
