The Sockapaloooza socks are finished. At the appointed time they will be mailed with the extra yarn and matching purple Comfort Zone needles in their own little handkerchief linen bag (I love these bags), along with some other goodies. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating—this is lovely sock yarn! I have had such a great time, knitting these socks for my sock pal. My sincere thanks to Alison for hosting the KAL, and to Donna, my sock sister, for reminding me of the updates.
And now, on to the Christmas knitting. That’s what I said—Christmas! With children, grandchildren, and inlaws, our immediate family totals twenty-two. If I don’t start now I’ll have a repeat of knitting through Thanksgiving dinner, and taking knitting to bed with me in case I wake up during the night. Last November and December are not happy memories. I waited until October to start which resulted in a lot of family members being unhappy when they didn’t get a pair of socks. Nope, this year I’m ahead of the game. This is me being organized and motivated. If I start to run down around August I’ll need a major yarn shopping expedition to bolster my resolve. That’s not at all a bad thing—I think I can do this!
