But for now, I started a new knitting project! Since I’m trying to use up as much of my current yarn stash as possible before I go and grab some new yarn for new projects, I thought I would start up on an other pair of climb socks. I made this pattern last year for the Journey KAL and loved it. Plus this yarn, after I washed it became even softer, which makes this a perfect cozy pair of socks for cooler weather.
The details for this pair are identical to the last pair, except for a few (non relevant) size changes that I’ve made. I started this one last weekend and have been picking it up here and there. Also, I have to say that I’m kind of proud of my Turkish caston for this pair. Not that I have any pictures of it to show you guys, but it looks a LOT better then my first pair of socks. Not that it’s perfect yet by any means. But I’m slowly working my way there.
I’m hoping to knit up a bit more pattern from Journey within the next couple of weeks if all goes well. And I’ll hopefully be sharing a couple of DIY and handmade gift ideas, since it is a goal of mine this year to buy less and make more. I could go off on you guys and discuss my thoughts on commercialism and the meaning of handmade, but I’ll spare you the details 😉
Have you guys been knitting up anything cozy? Or started on Christmas makes at all?
