Sock it to Me

Happy New Year to everyone! I have been very remiss in my blogging. I haven't posted since October... yikes!!! Typical excuses: work, family, Holidays blah blah blah... I've been getting "jabs" from my lovely sister Kim: "So I checked your blog AGAIN and still nothing. What's up with that?" Well, I got the hint Kim. I guess the first step is just to jump in again and do it!

So here they are. I finally finished these wonderful socks. I'm so happy I could screech! I spent so much time in the last few months working on gifts for Christmas, it was nice to do something for ME! I know I'm so selfish. I had blogged about them here as a work in progress.
I used a beautiful wool finger weight Araucania hand dyed yarn. The pattern was a simple one I got from my local yarn shop when I took a class there. By the end of the 4 week class I had finished one sock, but with Christmas creeping up on me I had to put the other sock aside so I could finish Christmas projects. I was not about to fall victim to the "one sock syndrome" so after the holidays I got to work and found that single sock a mate! Aren't they cute?
I'm so crazy I started on another pair which will probably be gifted to someone else of course :)

Well there ya go! Hopefully it won't be another 3 months until I blog again. I hope not because I have so much to share.
Have a great week!
