I don't look ready for prime time here- but it sure was a happy moment I wanted to have documented. Amelia sleeping beside me while I knit with some of my all time favorite hot pink yarn, soft and custom handspun from Shannon at SunriseLodgeFiberStudio, on a recent weekend morning.

I have three pair of hugs-handmade socks from friends: one striped pair from Lori, one ladylike pinky-purple pair from my friend Kusi, and one from long ago from my friend Paul. The socks I've knit in the past have been fat, dr. seuss-y and appropriate for wearing in hiking boots or galoshes. However, just like the magical 'someday' when I only use vintage and handmade dishes, I would love to live happily in the future wearing only handknit socks. That day sure feels far away because I'm a slow knitter.


  1. Oh my gosh! You're just darling knitting socks with your little miss;)

    Thanks so much for the shout out too! ;)

    I've got a half spun skein for you that I'll finish tonight so you can get those bad boys done;)


  2. Lulu, that picture is so sweet. I too love to wear my handknitted socks. I really do need to start another pair as I have enough yarn to make over a dozen pair and it does take me a very long time to make a pair. I am going to try the magic loop method and make two at a time.
