Tale of Two Socks

Two years ago in August I posted a picture of "bad sock" - too big, too pointy of a toe and heel and general not a good sock.

Fast forward to June of this year - we are in temporary housing while waiting to close on our farm house in NC.  All of my quilting supplies are in storage.  Most of my knitting is in storage.  Almost everything is in storage.  But I did keep out the yarn and the restart of "bad sock".

I loved the yarn and now that I am moving back to a colder climate - wool socks will definitely be necessary -so in June I started working on it again.  I tried to work on it where every I could - it even went out on the boat while the guys went fishing.



I got a few rows done - they didn't even get a nibble!

By the middle of June, I was the the cuff on the first sock.



I avoided second sock syndrome - I finished both of these last week.


I am especially pleased at how the stripes match.

Now if we could only get to started on our new adventure - we were supposed to close today but ran in to some issues.  Hopefully they will be resolved this week and the next post will be pictures of our little farm house.
