Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

I’ve been jonesing to finish these socks since Hunter Hammersen wrote “something may go swooping wildly about on the foot” in early December. There’s just something about a plain sock that isn’t really plain at all that appeals to me. And here they are. (right before they went in the mail to their photo shoot)

Aurin socks
I liked the yarn quite a bit. It feels amazing and has nice stitch definition. I’ll be using Caper sock again, but I think I’ll go with a semi-solid. Black Tulip (purple), Dark & Stormy (ocean blue), or Carina (gray) or… maybe I’ll go full on crazy and give Alexandrite a whirl.

      Thanks so much. I can’t believe I used to think I’d never knit socks. It’s hilarious to me now. Silly me!
