The Solution to Winter

I've come to the conclusion that my wardrobe requires many more handknit socks. Why is that? This is why.

I made these socks almost 2 years ago as a shop sample for Urban Knitters in Edmonton. When I got them back they went into my sock drawer and didn't emerge until Thursday night. I had forgotten about them entirely! The colour is a perfect combination of awful and awesome and they're nice and snug. They also have kept my feet warm during our cold snap which is more than I can say for the 3 layers of socks I had been wearing throughout the week.

So, for the rest of the evening I'll be working on my sadly neglected Lore Hoodie. I'm dyeing my hair this evening, so assuming it looks OK I'll be back soon with my newly finished and awesome Snapdragon tam!

P.S. Thanks to my dad for crawling on the floor to get a photo of the socks :)


  1. Dads are great like that, huh? =]
    I haven't gotten to knitting socks yet because I'm afraid to get addicted to them (which I'm pretty sure will happen). Awesome that you rediscovered them though! That's such a great feeling! =]

    I know! It takes a special dude to crawl on the floor for socks :) They're fun, you should try them! Socks aren't too addicting, I find, because they take foreverrr
