Sock that is. Tiny and cute and such a happy lil’ thing. I made mine and sent it. (Although I admit, a little belatedly.)

I’ve been working on a pair of socks for my mother. (yeah, “aww” and “sweet” — I know, I know.) I’ve just started the second sock, but thought I’d share some progress pics with y’all.

Knitting Fantasies

Posted by Nanc

What is the one thing almost every knitter responds with when asked in a meme “what would you rather be doing” or “if you could be anywhere, where would you be?” That’s right. “Snuggled up in a comfy chair in front of a fire (in a fireplace) knitting.” Would you invite a friend over if you could?

This past month has sped by at an alarming rate, and I’m not quite sure if I remember all of it. There were ups and downs, changes in logic, and gob-smacked moments. I’m happy for where we have ended up, but- my-lands -that was a bumpy ride!

So we finish up SOCKtoBEER with not a single completed pair of socks, and look forward to better knitting juju in NOROvember.

Wha? What kind of title is “ketchup” anyhoo? Well, let me blather on explain.

Despite the lack of blogging and sharing knits as they happen, I’ve been keeping quiet. Really, nothing crazy or fancy or whatnot is going on. Simply, I haven’t been knit-blogging about much. But I have been knitting. Some.

In an effort to show what I have knit and finished (FOs – hurrah!), what I’m currently knitting, and what I hope/plan/want to be knitting soon – I decided to post this here catch-up post.

The term “catch-up” reminds me of “catsup” which is another term for “ketchup.” And my joking dad used to play with the words and intermingle them. (I’m sure he also referred to “catch-up” as “catsup” during my youth, the silly man that he is.)

So read on for my catsup catch-up.

“Oh, what a beautiful day for the fair,” said the brightly colored pair of socks. “I wonder what we’ll see.”

If it sounds like I might have lost IT and am a bit more loony that usual, well you might be right. But it won’t stop those socks from telling their story. Nothing will stop the socks.

Not too long ago, Purling Pirate counted and figured out how many pairs of socks she could make from her sock stash. Heck, she’s even got a counter on her site to keep her honest. (And, oh-my! how it’s grown lately!)

At one point, I thought that I had scooped her lead (especially after my haul from MSWF). But no. Not even close, really.
