What is it about knitting that I can completely lose myself in it's stitches?
I've always considered knitting my "needlework soul mate". Not only because I can wrap my head around life while using the most precise of fine motor skills, but for me it surpasses even sleep in relaxation.
For these reasons, I have decided to commit to knitting even deeper over the next year. Call it my November New Year Resolution if you will, but I will be knitting a pair of socks each week for the next year.
I will admit that a "by-week" or two may be taken, but each Sunday I hope to have a new pair of socks to show you all. Perhaps Axel will be getting tons of new socks (as his feet are still in the "4 hour socks" category).
Why socks? Really there's nothing more intimate than knitting socks for someone special. Perhaps it's a MInnesotan thing, but in the bowels of winter, when even your Andersen double pane windows have ice on the INSIDE, all you have are your socks.
The pair I have for you this week are made from Noro Silk Garden sock yarn and are for a special person on my Christmas list. (Hopefully they aren't a blog reader.)
