Socknitting



Since 1998 I have knit a lot of socks! The past couple of years I kind of lost interest in socks. My family so much as told me "We are not centipedes, we don't need a hundred socks!!" So I went on to some other projects...mostly Prayer Shawls, sweaters and charity quilts for Project Linus. But, you see, I have a huge stash of sock yarn that I have been wanting to use up...get rid of...maybe it'll just disappear? So I decided to go back to knitting some socks. This pair was a UFO (unfinished object) from back last winter!! I completely finished one sock and am working on the second one's heel flap today. (sigh) Just can't seem to get my old sock "mojo" going.

Oh yes, I also plan to hem 6 small quilts for Project Linus today. Want to get them off to Virginia soon.

I just love your socks! I am trying to get back into knitting myself. I don't do socks and I really need to learn more than just knitting scarves :D, but what a great hobby.

I love Project Linus too. Our church quilt group will be making more quilts for our local chapter and I'm excited about that. What a great cause!

Hi June,
Your socks are so pretty. What is the colorway?
I am a centipede socknitter, just because that is what I LUV to knit.
You are a blessing to so many people with your charity projects.

Prayers and blessings to you,
your friend,
