Keep Calm and Knit Socks
Hello Friends! I am happy to report that I survived the April/May juggernaut of
---Children's End-of-School Activities---
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have guessed my secret. You have seen me do it a lot recently. Big reveal:
The Secret to Saving Sanity = Socks
Remember this equation! You might need it someday! They don't teach it in school!
S+S+S = S
(Secret Saving Sanity = Socks) (in case it wasn't clear)
It all started....way back in February.... in this bin:
Remember that? That was my Bin of Unfinished Socks. The sock graveyard. The bin under the tv cabinet. The Home for Unloved Socks. The place where half-knitted socks go to die.
It was a very dark place. A place not usually featured on blogs. But after the Ravellenic Games ignited my finishing mojo, I decided to visit this place that I had feared for so long.
And what I found was a place that was full of potential. FO potential. Black Gold. Texas Tea.
Then. The stars aligned. Sock knitting met up with track meets, orchestra concerts, and carpool waiting. There was a very long bus ride with 6th graders. Did I mention that they were singing girl scout camp songs in the seat directly behind me for 2 hours? Sock knitting, sock knitting, sock knitting. Basketball games, choir and band concerts, and did I mention the bus ride with 4th graders that lasted until 9:30 at night? Sock knitting, sock knitting, sock knitting in the dark.
To summarize: one heck of a lot of sock knitting.
In case you need nitty gritty details, I have been a good girl and Ravelled all of them! Here you go (from left to right):
That's it for now! Happy summer! Keep on knitting! xo
