Knitting what you know is soothing. Especially after going rogue on tiny sweater sleeves and things not going according to plan. I started these socks February first and am hoping to finish in time for Valentine’s Day (yes, I do like a challenge, why do you ask?). I’ve not made PINK socks for myself before and I’m not Valentine’s Day’s biggest fan, but the February Violently Domestic Danima banksiae socks knit-a-long and this pretty pink yarn inspired me to embrace the cliché.
ok, I did go a little bit rogue, I’m knitting 66 sts around at a gauge of 8.5 sts/inch when the pattern calls for a gauge of 6 sts/inch. But, so far, things are coming up roses. Even the pooling is playing nice!

Small Things (I just started reading Wheat Belly – it is actually about modern/hybridized wheat and gluten vs. ancient wheat and has been interesting so far.)
