My mojo (in general for life) has been a little low lately I decided I needed a morale boosting project. So what would be better than a quick win using one of my sock snakes? I pulled the Knit Picks Felici snake in the Dark Side colorway and paired it up with some Cascade Heritage from my stash.
I managed to get the needles inserted and the waste yarn pulled off. I have both 50 gram skeins cranked next to each other with waste yarn in the middle. I think I plan to put a toe at each end of each 50 gram snake. Then I will find the middle and split the tube in half. I can knit two cuffs and then based on the size figure out where I need to place an afterthought heel. I will probably end up with a set of shorties socks. But I am okay with that, I need more of those for my sock drawer! Plus if the plan works then I can do the same to the second 50 gram skein and have a second whole pair of socks!
Hope the socks help boost your mojo a bit! It’s been tough for me lately too. Thank goodness we have knitting, at least.
I finished a crochet project for our trip last night but need to turn out another project for delievery. I got a month to get it done
Hope these help bring back your mojo, sounds like you have a great plan for the socks so hopefully that will give you a boost.
