I dare not look on Ravelry to confirm that my over the knee high stripy socks have taken me two months to knit. That’s a lot of knitting time, that’s a lot of time knitting the same thing. Have I proven my discipline or my insanity? Maybe both, and a whole lot of perseverance, read: stubbornness.
I went as far as winding up my wollmeise skeins to make ‘plain and simple’ by Veera, a 4ply short sleeved top this afternoon. And then I paused. I need to knit something fast, I need to win at knitting, because those socks nearly got the better of me.
I dived into my ‘Marilyn’ bag of wool. I’ve set aside some small lots of yarn in pretty colours. I found some sentimental yarn. Apart from it being in my all time favourite colours, it is yarn that I purchased at my LYS when I lived in San Francisco. The moment in time that feels like a dream to me now. I can’t think of a more deserving recipient. I hope I can do the yarn justice.
