Thursdays are a bit of a rush around here with gym class and violin lessons. My sister has been encouraging me to try my hand at knitting socks which is probably the most portable type of knitting one can do. After knitting my first pair (which look like a hot mess, but are very cosy and comfortable), I cast on to an Amelie sock (MadTosh Alizarin Sock Yarn). I saw these beauties knit up by Rebecca and it was the first time that I was tempted to try knitting socks (it just seemed like such a difficult task with such small needles). This pattern is fairly simple and I find myself looking forward to my time spent shuttling children around and waiting for them to finish up their lessons when I have these pretty things waiting for me to work on.
