As Tracey said, every time you knit with Socks That Rock feels like the first time! This morning I finished my “pair” of socks – the G-Rocks and January One socks which I knit at the same time on two circulars. Of course, I love them! They are soft and stripey and perfect for my feet and G wants his own pair. I told him I’m gonna have to get some heavyweight for his socks – he wears size 13 shoes. Lucky 13 for me! (Um… That didn’t come out right. Insert sarcastic face here.)
I immediately cast on for the mates – two at a time – once again. Even though I really didn’t like the whole two at a time thing. I guess, technically, it probably takes just as long to knit two at a time as it takes to knit one at a time, but it FEELS like it takes forfreakingever and sometimes perception is enough. I was going to just knit one of the socks and then I was going to start with a completely different yarn, but in the end I decided that knitting these socks is like marriage. I was super excited when I started knitting them – TOGETHER – and I’m thrilled to be wearing them, but starting the next “pair” was a little bit hard and I’m sure it will be even harder to knit them but when I’m done I’ll have TWO new pairs of socks and I will love them all the more for the effort that went into knitting them. Sometimes we need to do things we don’t really want to do – but in the end it’s all worth it. Just like marriage.
January One loves G-Rocks!
