I lost my sockginity

I lost my Sockginity this week.  I have messed around with socks in the past but they always ended up ruining the good thing we had going before we could go all the way. My first attempt at socks ended in massive heartache and it took me a while to get over. I tried my hand at a pair of Tardis socks (Those who don’t know what a TARDIS is, I am sorry, so so sorry) (Those of you who didn’t get the “sorry” reference please stop reading and go watch Doctor Who) Anyway, before we could finish what we started things went horribly wrong and I mourned the loss of that relationship. Thing 2 Pulled the needles out and unraveled the second sock, and there was no way to really pick up the stitches plus I had already frogged these socks about 3 times per sock. So sad.

We had a good thing going for a while.

Well after a long break from from socks I finally decided to dip my toes back in the act of making socks. My next socklationship went great from the start. The first thing was they were toddler socks so much easier for me to deal with then Adult socks. (Size does matter)
Second there was just simple stripes so no crazy color work or dropping stitches and all the other craziness required in the Tardis socks. I finished both socks in no time. And it really doesn’t count unless everyone finishes, know what I mean 🙂

Now they are on their way to Alaska to be with the one they were made for.

Goodbye!
Goodbye!

  1. Congrats 🙂

    I learned with my first pair that I’m just not a sock knitter. I don’t enjoy it and I gain no pleasure in knitting them. Perhaps this is because I’m not a sock wearer.

    I own two pairs, one that I inherited from a laundry mixup and the other was purchased as a theme park because my new shoes were cutting into my heel.

    I live where flip flops are in style all year round because it’s never too cold for too long.

    1. I have a friend who moved up here from Miami and she came to me one winter and said “did you know that if you wear socks with boots your feet and legs stay really warm”. lol
      I rarely wear shoes but I did enjoy knitting tiny people socks. I think I am just a kid knitter, adult stuff just doesn’t do It for me.
