Almost Complete Toxic Oreos

My Toxic Oreo Vanilla Socks have been living in my purse and see slow but steady process. I have reached the cuff of the final sock.

I think last I showed you guys, the second sock was at the heel where I have the project keeper clipped in. I did my best to match the leg increase of the first sock until I got to the total stitch count I needed for the cuff.

If I sit down I could probably knock these out in maybe an hour? And then I would have some new socks to add to my drawer. But knitting heart only wants to work on hats right now. I might have to implement an arbitrary knitting rule and say no more hat knitting until these are finished, lol.

Do you have any arbitrary knitting rules?

  1. Everyone probably has those arbitrary rules in our lives at times. I do it for knitting and other stuff. I find it’s more of a reminder to myself about my own person priorities.

  2. I think follow your heart and work on hats; the socks are a quick win to be saved for a day when you need it! If your heart is with hats than knit hats! I generally follow my heart and knit what I want to as it brings me joy and sometimes I can’t get a particular project out of my mind, but I do impose rules on myself sometimes when I feel things have got a bit out of control. I started the year with 9 works in progress instead of my usual 3-4 (usually have one garment, one pair TAAT vanilla socks, one more complex project such as lace or colourwork that requires concentration, and perhaps a shawl or a hat; this works well for me and is a nice mix of different types of knitting and projects for different times of day / place) but due to pandemic weirdness and surgery last year things had just got messy and overwhelming. So I decided no new cast ons until I had things back under control, and I’m just about there now: I have a garment needing fixed and re knitted (again!! It’s cursed..), a lace pi shawl, the ripple bralette & a pair of colourwork mittens on the go, as well as knitted slippers needing to be darned & re-soled. When I cast off the bralette (hopefully in the next few days) I’m considering allowing my first new cast on of 2021, but I should probably knuckle down and get the colour work mittens done as I’ve been avoiding those for about 6-months now as I’m just really crap at colour work and it’s so slow. On the other hand if I focus then they are an opportunity to improve my skills.
    TL; DR knit what brings you joy unless you’re feeling panicky and it’s not fun any more. You are such a talented knitter and blogger and i really enjoy your posts
