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

I just finished reading The Selection and The Elite by Kiera Cass. These books were quite a bit better than I expected. The characters have some depth and there are political and moral dilemas. I do get frustrated with love triangles that go on for three full books, but what can you do, that seems to be the style right now. Here’s hoping Aspen imprints on someone else in the third book. (yea, I’m Team Maxon.)

The Selection, The Elite, the sock
In the meantime, I’ll be knitting. starting with these tiny green socks for my favorite 3 year old. Said 3 year old SELECTED the Cricket colorway (see what I did there). The yarn is Spud & Chloe fine sock yarn (80% wool and 20% silk). I love the feel of it and I’ll be using it in future to show off some sharp cables and lace patterns. But, the crisp stitch definition is a double-edged sword because it sure doesn’t hide mistakes.

Ps.Last night, Sydney slept in my lap while I knit and watched Suits on tv. It was a lovely evening!

    when my grandson was 3—he would only wear ‘grandma socks’….and we all know how a 3 year old can go through socks!!! that was a busy busy time keeping him happy……now at 10, he won’t look at them!! enjoy the sock love….it probably won’t last—-i’m hoping someday it will return!

      This particular toddler kept trying to hand me my knitting when we were sitting on the couch. He might be a lifelong fan. One can hope.

    Awe, I love puppy cuddles while I’m knitting. I think it’s as relaxing a hobby for my dogs as it is for me. It’s adorable that you had your little friend pick out yarn for socks! That makes them really special.

    Love the green sock kick you are on. Love the goggie face even more! My dogs are to smelly and matted right now to cuddle. Hair cuts soon!

    • Katie says:

      Well, the funny thing is that I was inspired to shop for green yarn for the basketweave or zig-zag Hunter socks and that’s how I discovered that the kiddo likes green….and after he picked this out….well, it had to become socks for him.
