A Sock Post

Don't you just hate it when people whine on and on on their knit blogs about uncomfortable personal stuff?  How annoying! So boring!
Actually, I'm feeling much better.  Proud of myself even for handling my little crisis. I have amassed an arsenal of tools over the years to deal with my anxiety issues, and I used them to good effect this round.  It was a rough few days but I've come out the other side now.  One of the things that helps is writing about it so thank you dear readers, all three of you, for your indulgence.

Back to knit blogging!  My latest sock project is an old reliable pattern (Hedera from the Spring 2006 Knitty) done in an old reliable yarn (Scheepjeswol Invicta in a gorgeous deep red). This was my second go at Cookie A.'s classic pattern.  It's a great morning commute knit. The four row repeat is easy to memorize yet is interesting enough to keep you motivated. These socks are going to look very cute peeping out the tops of my short boots.
Now I feel like immediately casting on a new sock but I still have a scarf and a cardigan on the needles. What the heck.  You know I will to do it anyway.

This is the nonsense about the bad stuff days - they can be SO bad you think you will never know another kind ever again, and then in a few days, poof! better, and you wonder how you ever slid or lost faith. (and then the next time, you promptly forget that that will happen. GAH.)

I love these socks, btw. Reeeally love them. Thanks for posting that gorgeous pic because I would not have known to put them in my queue if you hadn't!
