I’ve been neglecting the blog. Life has been busy. This weekend was the first time since the Olympics began that I’ve had some time to myself. And I used that time to finish my socks. Some work has been left undone, as well as grocery shopping and laundry. But my socks are finished. I’ve got gold!

Socks always intimidated me. I’m not sure if it was knitting with multiple dpns or all those heel short rows. But they weren’t as bad as I had feared. In fact, they were kind of fun! Don’t get me wrong — there were a few false starts, some frogging, and plenty of cursing at the kitchener stitch.

But in the end it was worth it. I’ve conquered my fear of socks and will be wearing them for the closing ceremonies. Oh, and anyone who got a scarf for Christmas last year, there is a good chance you’ll be getting a pair of handknit socks this year.
