Monogamy in Knitting

So I know I can't claim monogamous knitting status (my large pile of WIPs counts majorly against me). I can't even attempt to claim it for this week because true monogamy means only one project being worked on and I worked on three this week. However, I am climbing just a slight hair of monogamy because all projects that i worked on were socks (and two are even the same pattern). You've seen them all before (technically), but they've each grown since last week so let's roll them out!

My Purple Sock 

I am 8 rows away from starting the toe on this bad boy. The end is near…I can feel it!

Stripey Stripes
Slowly, but surely this little sock is growing. I've been working on it when I have free time at work lately (which has been limited). Still, it's managed to grow a few stripes since the last time you saw it. I'm in now rush to get this pair done and am just enjoying so simple process knitting.

Seattle Blues (aka Mom's Socks)
This is indeed sock number two for Mom's Mother's Day pair! I'm a little behind where I would like to be, but I'm hoping some speed knitting tonight and tomorrow will get me back on track. I really like these socks and am crossing my fingers my mom falls in love as well. 

So yes, another week of sockyness. Maybe next week I'll have something knew to show you. Linking up with some other fabulous knitter/bloggers; Tami, A Baby's Smile, Ginny (check them out and the other's who are linking up with them!).


  1. Beautiful socks, a beautiful gift.

    1. Thank you so much! I really hope she likes them.

  2. 'wow so many socks I have knitted one pair ever and I had such trouble with the ankle area. They came out very tight and that has put me off them. I wish I could knit socks

    1. These are actually pairs 3, 4 and 5. I only have two previously completed pairs. I know a lot of people really like to cast-on over two needles or up a needle size to alleviate issues with casting on too tight and not being able to get the sock on past the heel. Another option might be toe-up socks? Hope you find some sockspiration and try it out again!
