In my front yard, in 90F+ heat, wearing wool socks and taking FOtos, and I get a raised eyebrow from some neighbors out on a walk. I find myself waving and explaining "I'm not crazy, just a Knitter", but perhaps the more apt and succinct explanation would be "I'm just a crazy Knitter" πŸ‘‹πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Yarn is @showmeyarn Butterfly House and playing round with and fine-tuning a stitch pattern. #embracingMyWeird #sockSchool2018 #dailyKnitSocks #Ravelry #wearingMySwatches #knitLove #knittersOfInstagram https://ift.tt/2Nvt54t

I talk about my sock knitting addiction and collection, reasons for loving hand-knit socks, toe-up vs cuff-down, the KAL, and ways to get involved.

My theory of stash conservation of @knitterly_things: Vesper #selfStriping skein quantities can neither be added nor removed from my stash. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ I don't know if I do it subconsciously, or Julia just puts another must-have new colorway about the time I am working on an older gorgeous colorway, but somehow I always seem to have another skein arrive about the time I have an FO. I finished another pair of #skewSocks in the Poetry in Motion colorway, and the new Sum-Sum-Summertime colorway arrived the same day 😍😍 #yarnSwoon #Ravelry #dailyKnitSocks #knitLove #knittersOfInstagram https://ift.tt/2KFhg9Q

The #AdventureWalkSocks pattern is now available on #Ravelry! This design is close to my heart, as it is inspired by my family's tradition of heading out on walks with no real destination in mind. This sock pattern has a full foot and panel option, with 3 interchangeable mock cable motifs for each. You choose your adventure, and everyone's journey is beautiful and unique. Examples with pictures paired with the motif sequences are provided in the pattern. #knitLove #knittersOfInstagram #dailyKnitSocks https://ift.tt/2I17oqH

I am loving all the #myfirstsweater posts, so here are mine. The garment on the right was my first top that I knit in 2008, which started out as a Little Sister dress for my daughter out of Hobby Lobby I love this cotton. But I misunderstood the pattern yarn weight and gauge and ended up with something that would fit me. In case you don't count garments without sleeves as sweaters, the long sleeve sweater on the left is Olive that I knit in 2009. It was fingering weight and my face shows the shock that I actually finished it! I remember wanting to find a fancy yarn that wasn't too pricey online and ended with this Cascade Heritage Paints from @websyarn. I still wear and love the Olive! #shamelessfirstknits #shortHair #babyFace #ancientKnitstory #RavelryMemories http://ift.tt/2Gh088P

My 2018 wish for every knitter is to have something that you knit that makes you this happy; a project that you can cast-on when you are uncertain what to knit next, a project that you always have the correct stash at ready to knit with, and a project that you enjoy wearing/using.
