This last weekend passed in a blur, with lots of car rides and movies and family gatherings and I had tons of time where I was keeping people company, and – Well. I made myself a little Valentine. I started on Thursday with a beautiful roving from The Yarn Yard.
I split it in half, then each half into singles, then into two skeins of a two ply. I knew I wanted socks, but I wasn’t sure how much yarn I had, so I started at the toes, and supplemented with some black that I had kicking around.
I knit two tubes, starting with black toes and ending with black ribbing. I was at the movies when I came to the place where heels should be, I just kept going.
Today, I put in afterthought heels.
They almost match.
I love them.
Happy Valentine’s Day to me. Handspun, handknit socks.
